Backseat Driver

video
Let the honeymooning begin!!! We landed in sunshine filled Bridgetown, Barbados on January 4, 2010 and hopped into our taxi to Holetown only to find out: (1) the flight wasn't over ... they FLY sooooo fast down those tiny winy roads, (2) their two-lane roads equal our one-lane roads, and (3) driving on the left side is the right side. Aren't the sugarcane fields just gorgie!? Don't blink or you'll miss them. Our taxi driver not only drove like the fast and the furious, but he gave us a rich history lesson, native pointers, and many laughs until we reached our final destination. Xoxo-BLC

PS: My sweet friend IRL sent me this flyer --- pray for these sisters safe return home!!!
PSS: Happy Ash Wednesday to you and yours! :)

  4. Ohhh, you definately take your life in your hands on the roads there. Even crossing the street is kamakazi like. Make sure to visit Sandy Lane for at least a cocktail. That is, if you're not staying there already! XXOO

    ps..avoid the buses at all costs!

  6. That cracked me up! Boy, he sure was flying! Not that it is remotely the same, but I feel the same way every single time i take a taxi in London. The roads are tiny, the cabbies fly and I'm always afraid of being hurled into the side of a building when they take round-abouts on 2 wheels!
