Question Barbados - any parents with young children about?

Hi everyone, my husband and I are planning to move to Barbados from the UK by the end of the year with our 18 months old son.

I would love to chat with any parents that have done this and hopefully make a friend or two to share a bottle of rum with.lol!

We moved to Grenada a couple of years ago and just as we had got settled with a job and put a deposit on a piece of land Ivan hit and literally trashed our plans. We stayed in Barbados while we got affairs in order and realised that this was the place we wanted to live our days out. We returned to the UK for a few reasons but have thought long and hard about returning to Barbados to live.

Hope to hear from some of you soon.

Oops, didn't mean to come across as impatient - just re-read my post and thought it sounded a bit preferable to only people with kiddies.

Hi,

We're also looking at moving to Barbados next year. Our kids are 2 and 5 so a bit older. I'm also keen to hear more from families who have already made the move.

Would be interested in talking to you more, particularly as you already have experience of living in Grenada. Would it be best to pm?

Briony
