Paradise in Barbados!
There is no better place to spend your college graduation trip than Barbados! Staying at the Fairmont Royal Pavilion made it 10 times better! Of all the beautiful pictures I took of the hotel and the surrounding beaches, it was very hard to choose the best one to submit. I chose this picture because it really captures the beauty of the Barbados beaches. This photo was taken from our beach front balcony at the Fairmont hotel. The astonishing color of the water, the smooth white sand, and the bright sunny blue sky makes you feel as if you're there right now. This photo is also one of my favorites because of the man walking along the beach. He's known as "Pineapple" and he's probably one of the nicest men you'll ever meet. He keeps his hair straight up on the top of his head so that everyone will recognize him and never forget him (and it also resembles a pineapple). Pineapple coordinated our glass bottom boat ride, snorkling with the turtles, and swimming around an underwater ship wreck.
The Fairmont Royal Pavilion was an amazing experience. The hotel is luxurious and the staff was wonderful. As soon as you arrive they greet you at the front with a glass of the famous Barbados Rum Punch. Our ocean front view made our trip very romantic. We kept our balcony doors open at night so we could fall asleep to the sound of the ocean and wake up to the smell of salt water. We ate breakfast at the outdoor restaurant every morning and it was absolutely delicious! They also had a great concierge staff who helped us plan our adventures around Barbados.
I had such an amazing time at the Fairmont in Barbados! We will be planning our next trip there soon!
