Walking and climbinghave become a natural part of my life; adventure-filled journeys across different terrain, in all kinds of weather, from as early as the first birds sound their voices and the sun ☀️ starts to peek through clouds on the vast eastern sky.
Are you into walks or hikes? The slow discovery of things otherwise missed (or not noticed) while zooming by in a car? Well, here is a photo tour from some of my outdoor adventures on the south east of Barbados. These views aren’t on the front pages of travel magazines, in hotel brochures or advertised on tv/online, but they’re still a beautiful part of life on this island in The Caribbean.
Though born here, I learned that there is so much more to learn about the island, just by walking. Also, in terms of health and fitness, all the climbing, bobbing and weaving up and down tracks through trees and leaves, taking in fresh air, it’s all good for the mind, body and your overall well-being.
So the next time you find yourself wishing you had gym fees, or are tempted to feel bored, stifled or disenchanted being on a ‘small island’, try taking a walk and see how refreshed, alive and grateful you feel.
It will inspire, brighten and set the tone for your day!
Safety tip: Let your (close) people – not social media – know which road or roads you plan on taking, time you’re leaving or what area you’ll be in, walk with water or some cash to buy some along the way, and don’t venture off by yourself unnecessarily.
