Last week, eager to explore more of Barbados, I set out on a road trip to the north of the island. Along my journey to St. Lucy, there were interruptions, moments when I got lost (thanks, Waze!), and other times when I found myself just spellbound by the beauty of my country and its people.
It’s been four days since I started the Slow Seven Challenge. And what an adventure it has been!
I have had mostly meals of seasonal fruits and veggies available in Barbados. Well, mostly avocado, really. Because I just can’t get enough of it.
For the next seven days, I’ll be changing the way I eat. It’s nerve-racking and exciting all at the same time. Here’s why.
Just before my birthday, I had an impulsive thought to invite a few friends over for a celebration. I wanted it to be a good lime: casual, yet elegant; elegant without being expensive. And with little time to pull it together, I had to be smart and fast with my planning.
I love having people over. But when it’s at a moment’s notice, things can get dicy.
So many thoughts swirl through my head:
Will I be able to tidy all of this before they get here?
Do I have drinks chilled?
Will I have enough ice?
What will they eat?
How can I fit this into my budget?
