I visited the country in 2010 and I think I was more in tune with the first time that I visited than the second time that I went there. When you are in doubt, travel to Barbados. Dubai forex expo me, the world is a book and those who do not travel only read the opening page. What fascinated you about the country on arrival?
Inasmuch as I was with a group, I left them all to explore. We went to Atlanta in America first and we had to go to Miami where we took a connecting flight to Barbados. We landed in Bridgetown, which is the capital. Our luggage did not arrive immediately and we had to go to the hotel.
I was bored and decided to go on a tour. In Barbados, everybody is practically half naked because its summer almost all the time and the beaches are very beautiful. Are there other things that you observed about Barbados? The people there are lively and they love colours. Known as Barbadians, they speak English in addition to the Bajan dialect and other West African languages. I noticed that the buses in the country are driven really fast. I love to party and everybody knows that the party doesn’t start until I walk in.
From Bridgetown, I wanted to tour the entire Island and chartered an helicopter that flew me round the Island. Do you remember some of the local food that ate during your stay? Barbados is an Island, so there is a lot of seafood which I really love but the first thing that I discovered which has lived with me till date is the Pinacolada drink. I learnt that it originated from the country, so I went to the bar at the hotel where I lodged and drank about four glasses. I also tried out seafood such as the platter, octopus, lobsters, shrimps, and others.
Since you are widely travelled due to the nature of your work, what travel tips can you offer? First and foremost, in terms of ticketing and reservation, be very sure about your travel route-if you are doing a straight flight or a transit one, be sure of the transit details. If you are transiting at Charles de Gaulle in Paris for instance or Dubai Airport that is so large, you must make sure that you wear comfortable shoes to run around. Don’t be like me who loves wearing heels. Don’t wear one if you can’t stand it. What other things stood out for you during your trip?
Apart from the food, I met a lot of artistes because the moment they realised that I was a presenter from Nigeria, they became very friendly with me. I met Sean Paul, the reigning Miss Barbados at the time and Cardinal Official. I’m a presenter, so I am all about pop culture. I also visited a lot of clubs and in all, the culture in Barbados is so evident in the people-they are friendly and warm. Are there similarities between the two countries and what can Nigeria learn in terms of tourism? Barbados is definitely one of the biggest tourist attractions in the world. I do not know what their source of revenue is but I can tell that tourism plays a huge part.
Everybody is warm and friendly and even in the restaurants and hotels that you go to, the customer service is impeccable. There are some places in Nigeria where the customer service is quite poor, so we need to work on that.
