Mix Nutz Foreday | J’Ouvert in Barbados

The start of 2015 was amazing!

A few of us, organised by my doubles aerial partner Rebecca Rennison (we are known as Le Renn), Leyla Rees, Tiago F. Martins and Gemma Palomar were sent over to Barbados to perform on New Years Eve at Harrison’s Cave Complex for Mix Nutz Productions featured event Shangri-La sponsored by Virgin Atlantic.

The event itself was absolutely stunning. We did a bit of walkabout serving some of the sponsored brands to guests. Becki and Leyla did silks, Tiago and Gemma doing amazing acrobatics and acrobalance and myself on aerial hoop all on an outdoor rig.

What made this trip even better (apart from already being in a hot, beautiful country!), the event organisers let us stay for a week (sharing a room with Leyla was jokes) and we all had a blast going to the beach everyday drinking cocunuts and eating the most amazing seafood.

I went with Leyla and Gemma on a Catamaran and we got to swim with turtles and over a shipwreck.

I’d definitely recommend the place as a holiday destination as the people are lovely! We made great new friends and miss it so much. BRING US BACK!
