Four Visits


View Five Visits to Barbados on greatgrandmaR's travel map.

When I retired in 2000, we started traveling south on our sailboat for the winter. But when we ran aground in the middle of the channel south of wrightsville Beach NC, Bob decided that it was too stressful to commute south by boat. Bob's brother convinced him to take a cruise to Bermuda and he also told us about the Space Available Condos that are available to retired military. So after the Bermuda cruise, I started booking Space/A condos going south along the coast.

In the winter of 2005-2006, I found a condo a Space/A condo available in Santo Domingo.
