A social butterfly who developed a passion for aviation after sitting on the captains knee on a Tri-Star aircraft over The Atlantic, don’t worry I was only 6 at the time. I was lucky enough to allocate take off and landing slots for over 10 years and spend 14 years in the aviation industry. While my destiny has taken me off radar and landed me in another fantastic opportunity outside of this industry I still find time (when I can) to write about flying and travel.
Barbados, popularly known as the 'Jewel of the Caribbean' is one of the most sought-after holiday destinations.
