Join me as I explore the sites and sounds of Bridgetown's main street; Broad Street. This old town, built between the 17th and 19th century, is an excellent example of British Colonial architecture. We'll start at my favourite place, the old Cheapside Market, and make our way up Broad Street. The old mix with the new in this historic city as we catch a glimpse of the newest, and largest mural in the eastern Caribbean, and take in the sites of the Georgian, neo-classical exterior design of St. Mary's Cathedral. Bridgetown is filled with a fascinating list of buildings dating back from the 1800s. Finish the tour with the crème de la crème of monuments: the neo-Gothic architecture of the Parliament Buildings.

I enjoyed having this first opportunity to travel with Heygo to a Caribbean destination, a part of the world that is still largely unfamiliar to me. I look forward to having the opportunity to see some more of Barbados if further tours of the island are planned in the future.

Lots of interesting facts, and I learned a lot about Bridgetown...loved Gina's GORGEOUS, lilting Bajan accent, and the fact that a street vendor invited her to stand under her umbrella to shelter from the rain was proof of how friendly Bajans are. Lovely to see all the volourful fruit and veg on the market stalls, too! Really enjoyed this tour and looking forward to touring with Gina again!
