So in talking to a few people during my many travels, I continue to realise that Barbados is a little known (if at all) miniscule blob on the map of the world. Everyone knows about Jamaica and Usain Bolt … hardly anyone has heard of Barbados even though they do know of Rihanna, our own golden girl who was born, bred and raised right here among us (go figure).
But for those of you who may be wondering about this beautiful island of 166 square miles lying in the middle of an amazingly blue ocean, with some of the nicest most creative people you can find anywhere on earth, here is one of my favourite songs by The Merrymen (a group also “made in Barbados” – just like Rihanna) along with some super cool pics.

“Welcome to my island, my home!”
