The Daily Snorkel – Blog by one of our readers

Ladies and gentlemen, it has truly been my pleasure to write for your information and your entertainment. What brings me even more joy is your encouraging feedback and hearing about your experiences in beautiful Barbados, my home, now OUR home.

One reader, an American mother with two wonderful toddlers, has made it safely to our shores a few weeks ago and has been documenting her journey with vivid photos in her own wordpress blog The pictures are breathtaking and I enjoy her realistic and sincere commentary. She also offers tidbits such as how to handle driving on the left-hand side of the road for the first time. It is worth a long look, so please visit. I wish her and her family well, and I look forward to more readers sharing their experiences with us.

Have an enjoyable Friday and weekend ahead.
