Hi,
I was particularly interested to learn you are early-retirees. Can you advise how you obtained a student visa when you are not working and therefore won't have a work permit? We are in the same...

Re: violent crime in Barbados

No, please don't take offence. Certainly none intended. I was seeking people's opinions as I value them. I am not trying to paint Barbados in a bad light. I have of course been to Barbados many times...

Re: violent crime in Barbados

Thanks for those stats. I saw that on the internet and came to the conclusion that the threat of burglary is higher than in the UK - though it depends on where you live I guess. I live in a very safe...

Hi Shines,

We haven't quite decided but we liked both Codrington and Providence. What made you choose Codrington above the others?
