AT-A-GLANCE

6

Every year we endeavour to show Barbados from a new angle and for

this 2017 edition we have taken that literally, featuring over 30 spectacular

drone images, sourced from talented local photographers, to represent

the theme of ‘Barbados from Above’.

In this, our 34th annual edition, our opening article is a compelling

photographic essay accompanied by the well-informed and fascinating

observations of Dr. Lennox Honychurch on how the location, geology and

environment of Barbados has dictated the way the island has evolved

into the nation and society that we all enjoy today.

We salute our only living National Hero, Sir Garfield Sobers, who

celebrated his 80th birthday in the same year that Barbados celebrated

its 50th Anniversary of Independence, by reproducing excerpts from a

citation delivered in his honour by Sir Henry Fraser at the University of

the West Indies.

As Barbados prepares to host the World Association of Flower Arrangers

(WAFA) biannual Show in June 2017, with over 500 exhibitors and

thousands of attendees from all around the world, we highlight several

interesting characters from the world of horticulture in our Meet A Bajan

series, written by Sarah Venable with her trademark wit.

To add a fresh take to our Sightseeing section, we have invited author

Julian Armfield to share his engaging perspective on sightseeing in

Barbados, written in the same appealing style that has made his book

Absolutely Barbados a Caribbean best seller on Amazon.

Sir Henry Fraser provides a glimpse into the remarkable history of

Barbados’ influence on the early settlement of the United States, with

interesting insights from his newly published book The Barbados-Carolina

Connection.

And of course Ins & Outs showcases the very best that Barbados has to

offer to make your stay the best that it can be.

Read on and have a wonderful vacation!
