About me! Heyy ;) My name is Tiaa, and I'm 22 years of age!!!!!. My family and friends all originate from Barbados, and this is my little gem of an island I'm so proud and happy to bring others to experience and have an amazing time!

Details about the accommodation: Accommodation is not confirmed as of yet, but a few options are on the table depending on how many TripMates join the trip, but the idea will be an apartment with shared rooms close to the locations I added to the itinerary. The island is very small, so everywhere is in close proximity and is a matter of minutes away from each other. Once we have the car hire, we will be good to go! c: We will spend very little time in the Apartment, although all options are shared rooms basis, modern, cute, clean and have AC! Please reach out to me in the Q&A section in case you have questions about the trip!
