Default From London to Barbados

I moved from London to Barbados just over a year ago. I'm a 29 year old female, haven't really made any proper friendships (I find I'm greeted with hostility, don't know why ). Looking for friends around my age who like working out, shopping, art, drinks/dinner etc

Thanks

Rachel

Hi Rachel

As Jersey girl has mentioned please arrange a change of name as giving your direct contact details out is not a good move as this site is viewed by thousands. Make sure you do that before giving out any further personal details on your situation cos right now you have supplied your full name and I could easily find out a lot more information on you.

You mention hostility - from whom....are you single or with a partner and are you working on the island just thinking of ways that you can integrate

CAlly123.. are you moving to Barbados with a job, work permit etc..?? or just coming to look for a job?? it's not really as easy as that.. unless you are a citizen of Barbados, have the proper documents to live and work here, finding a job is not an easy process and does require that whomeever hires you , must apply for a work permit, which is not cheap and is valid for anywhere from 1 year to 3 years only.

unless you can do a job that no Barbadian can do, or you have special skills that are required for specific jobs its still very much not that easy.. just a heads up.
