This is a guide for new Kadooment goers or people that are interested in participating in Kadooment in the future and know little or nothing about the preparation of it.
Not familiar with Kadooment? 🤔
You know how your parents would drill you about eating before going out drinking. Well that is what i am doing, sorry.
I know this may seem obvious, but some people like to skip breakfast and you do not want to feel sick on the road and have to translate to your most likely tipsy friends, that you feel ill.
Sunscreen is a must! 🌞😥
The sun in Barbados can be brutal, combine getting beaten down by the sun and not having any breakfast. You are going to feel like you were in the desert, trust me.
Even if you do not feel the effects of not wearing it that day, wait until the next day.
Water! 💦Water!💦 Water! 💦
Yes you should enjoy some alcohol but make sure that you water it down. Remember you have a ways to go on the road, so you should always drink water during. Fainting from dehydration is very real.
Comfy Shoes! 👟
Choose to wear comfortable shoes instead of ones that just look stylish. Half way down the road your feet would be begging for mercy and the day after you would be walking like a newborn giraffe.
And let’s not talk about those annoying blisters. I have seen people wearing heels, yes heels! And I could not believe it, I cringed every step they made.
Keep Your Stuff Safe! 🔒
If you decide to carry stuff with you like car keys, phone, money etc, you would need a waterproof bag. How many times have you been partying with friends and alcohol spilled on you.
Unless your costume package comes with one, you should invest in one. Here is a link to an affordable one.
Safety First! 👫👫
Keep your friends in sight. Yes I can understand it may be your first time jumping and you are excited, but staying safe is more important in the long run.
You do not want to be half way through and can not find any of your friends and have to be walking back and forth tipsy and lost. And i strongly advice on not jumping alone and have a designated driver.
I hope this guide was helpful, if your friend is also partaking in Kadooment share this post with them!
Happy jumping ! 💃
