Independence Day in Barbados is November 30
Next Wednesday is Independence Day in Barbados, one of my favorite places in the Caribbean. The island nation gained its independence on November 30, 1966. So that will make the independent state and commonwealth realm 45 years old in just another week.
If you’ve not been there, why not celebrate Independence Day in Barbados by taking a few minutes to find out a little about it, and see some wonderful Pictures of Barbados on this lens? You’ll see some wonderful photos, pictures and designs featuring scenes from Barbados, and find out some interesting facts, too.
What a beautiful place Barbados is. And in more ways than one, too. The people are warm and welcoming, and totally proud of the place they live. And well they should be. The climate is ideal (unless you love things like blizzards, of course) the beaches are fine, and the diving and snokeling outstanding.
Here’s something you may not know about Barbados: According to UNESCO, the literacy rate there is higher than that of some of the greatest nations on earth, including the United States. When we were there, we saw groups of school children on their way to school, all wearing their freshly pressed school uniforms, They seemed happy to be making their way to class. Wonder what secret Barbados has discovered about keeping school kids engaged? Must find out!
