Arriving in Barbados, with a rash, but feeling good and looking forward to plenty of sun, surf and cricket

We've had limited internet access so it's been difficult to update this blog.
So after Georgia we took off down to Florida, spent a night in Miami and flew to Barbados. This place is amazing. The people have been so kind and they're great to talk to. We've spent nearly two weeks here in Barbados now, we have so many stories and have experienced great things. The rash has completely cleared up too. That's what two swims per day in the azure blue waters of the Caribbean sea will do. The beaches are so good. Our accommodation has been perfect. It's 50 metres from Accra beach too, which is a great beach, so we've been up at 6am every morning for a swim before heading out for the day, to the cricket or off exploring when it hadn't started yet. We then have another swim in the afternoon. There's been some nice little waves, 3 foot with nice peeling barrels so I've been out in it for hours everyday. The water is so clean and clear.
The Test match was great fun, just finished yesterday, we went to all five days and we loved it. Met so many great locals and we talked cricket and people and Barbados for hours. It's so much better going to the cricket in Barbados than at home in Australia. The security and police, the cost of food and drinks and the choice of food and drinks is so much better here. More detail later, but we were buying 3 beers for $5 Australian. Good beer too, Banks.
Right now we're just preparing to leave for Trinidad tomorrow for the second Test and more adventures. We had a massive night at Harbour Lights nightclub last night. We went with some other Australians we've met. We ended up partying with James Pattinson, Nathan Lyon and Mike Hussey, celebrating the Test victory. Hussey is a champion, he was really enjoying himself and we were all on the dance floor and singing songs together. It was great.
More updates and stories to follow, once we have more time on the web.
