I was impressed with the security at the Dulles International airport. The security guards were quite congenial, and that made the process very enjoyable - even when my bag was opened and searched because a detergent powder I was carrying in a Nalgene container resembled a liquid on the scanner.
I arrived in Barbados and was met by the taxi my hotel had arranged. The first thing I did when I joined TravBuddy was to create a review for the Sea U Guest House; it was an amazing place to stay. Coming from hectic Washington, D. C. I immediately felt a weight I didn't realize existed drop away when I arrived at the place.
I put my things away and just lay on the bed for a while enjoying my surroundings - that was entertaining for all of 10 minutes. I then changed clothes, took my new camera, and began walking around taking pictures. Dinner that evening was wonderful, and I got to enjoy it with Jessie and Alex, a couple from California celebrating their honeymoon. Jessie was from Venezuela and very friendly and gregarious, and her brother Enrique had journeyed from Venezuela to meet her and Alex at the guest house. It was a fun start to my trip.
