Toronto, Chicago, Sudbury, Wisconsin… Come on down to Barbados!
As I write this I see that the forecast for next Sunday in Toronto Canada says minus 18C and snow. A little further north on the map is a town called Sudbury and it’s going to be minus 29C there. Oh baby! Brrrrrrrrr!
Not to be outdone, our American friends in Chicago are receiving up to a foot of snow with temperatures well below freezing. And at the Experimental Aircraft Association airfield in Oshkosh Wisconsin, our flying friends will be very warm on Sunday at a positively balmy minus 11C – which should help them dig out of the big snow storm heading their way on Thursday and Friday.
WestJet: Toronto to Barbados and return for less than the price of a couple of sushi dinners
Our old friends Hants, Dennis Jones and Adrian Loveridge were having a conversation this morning at BFP, and we learned from Adrian that a body can fly from Toronto to Bridgetown and return for $250 Canadian dollars including all taxes.
So we ask all our Canadian friends… What are you waiting for?
Here’s the conversation pulled from the comments section…
@ Dennis Jones
Sometimes I wonder if the overseas employees of the BTA and Barbados Consulates socialise with persons in North America.
Here in Ontario, every year when it gets to minus 10 with snow and ice on the ground like right now, people are booking Escapes to the Heat.
It is a simple equation. minus 10 equal plus 28.
A couple more weeks of this cold and I too might be joining the snowbirds on WestJet.
Adrian Loveridge says:
Have you seen WestJet’s latest promotion. Return flights from Toronto to Barbados on selected days of the week (January on) for CAD$250.46 including ALL taxes.
Cheaper than your heating bill!!!
Get on the plane.
Any rooms at Peach and Quiet?
Adrian and his wife run Peach and Quiet – a small, very special ocean front hotel on the southern tip of Barbados. Their place has won several awards from Trip Advisor, including “Travelers’ Choice – Best Bargain” for 2009. Fodor’s gave them another award in 2009 and says of Peach and Quiet in Fodor’s Caribbean guide, “Perhaps Barbados’s best-kept secret, this small seaside inn on the southeast coast is the sweetest deal we’ve found on the entire island.”
So how about it Adrian? Do you have any rooms left in January and February? Hants is freezing!
