My holiday in Barbados: Roberta Hides, aged 12

WHAT I LIKED

I loved the yellow buses that went quite fast and played loud reggae music. The beaches were brilliant and the sea was warm. Me, my dad and my brother James went on a banana boat ride and me, my mum and James also had a donut-inflatable ride in the sea.

WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE

One day in the capital, Bridgetown, we tried walking to the Barbados Museum in an area called St Ann's Garrison. We asked a lady for directions and she said that it was 10 minutes along the boardwalk, so we started walking. After 20 minutes going round in circles we got the bus back to our villa.

WHAT I SAW

Lots of beautiful tropical fish swimming around coral when we went snorkelling at Folkestone Marine Park and some Barbados green monkeys. I also saw a West Indies v England friendly cricket match.

WHAT I ATE AND DRANK

We bought some fresh pineapple from a fruit stall, which was really nice, and I had some Dorada fish that is nicknamed "dolphin fish". I didn't really like that though.

WHAT I BOUGHT

I bought two reversible Barbados lady dolls; one side has little plaits with beads on the end. I bought them for 20 Barbados dollars (£5) each.

WOULD I GO BACK?

Yes, definitely!
