The Barbadian Matrix reloaded – New blog from Bajan Frog and Barbados touted in Lady-Oriented Travelling website

It’s that time where we sail thru cyberspace and see what Bajans or things Bajan to discover and inform… First? The Bajan frog whose duty it is to save the Universe – Fitzroy – apart from a fabulous career in singing, being a noted journalist in Miami and wielder of a wicked sword… Is now a blogger!

Yup, but don’t take my word for it, here’s Fitzy

Hey folks, I just realized I’ve been emailing some of you this link without introducing it properly.

It’s my new blog (it was bound to happen, right? Shite…) featuring random musings as well as cool tunes, albums, mixes, videos that I’m digging for your download and/or perusal.

There’s too much goodness to go around. I’m in Barbados right now, but when I get back to Miami it’ll largely focus on my little misadventures around town, stuff that barely makes a blip in our newspapers, on our TVs or even on most of our websites.

That’s when the real fun starts. Today, however, I’m just ranting about Steely Dan. Please enjoy.

As if that was not shock enough, when this blog began we spoke of chasing Yellowtail or having Canadian Secretary’s Syndrome, which is when a foreign lady (usually white) takes up with a black Bajan (many unemployed, and some scornfully refer to asBeach-Bums“) – she’s financially well-off and looking for “different” sex while he needs money and has surplus energy, thus, a weird synergy.

Now there’s a website which seems to facilitate this wanderlust, it’s called “Go Girlfriend” making sure females can travel solo comfortably –

GoGirlfriend is where intelligent women go for travel information that matters. We inform, connect and inspire women to live their travel dreams.

Our goal is simple. To provide women 35-55 years old with the necessary tools and information they need to travel with confidence.

Whether it’s escaping to a Barbadian beach or heli-skiing for the first time, we deliver well-researched information, smooth a path through the nitty-gritty detail planning and help make connections with a worldwide community of women.

While Arlington, Texas is thought to be a hotspot, St Lucia and San Juan are also considered appetising; but there’s also a section on Barbados

Bajans (Barbadians) enjoy one of the highest standards of living in the Caribbean and as a result have one of the lowest crime rates. The flying fish (which don’t really fly) is the national symbol and a must-try while visiting.

Barbados is small enough that you can park yourself anywhere and be within a short drive of whatever you want to do.

If you’re an off-the-beaten path traveler, skip the overdeveloped Bridgetown and St. Lawrence Gap and hightail it to the eastern side of the island where you’ll find wilderness hiking trails, surf sports and a delicious sampling of local culture.

The only problem I see with their Barbados page is advising caution with our water – don’t we have the world’s 3rd purest? They also advise caution for malaria, dengue fever and yellow fever – only dengue is a serious threat, usually November to April… Yikes, tourist season, h’mmm?
