Bahamas Day 4: An Education at the Island School thumbnail

Isn’t there something horrible about starting the new year by sleeping through the day and feeling deathly? Last year Mark and I literally spent the day comatose on the couch, watching The Hangover, hungover. Well this time, things were going to be different. We were going to be active. And tour places. And pretend we weren’t…

From High Heels to Flip Flops: New Year’s Eve in the Bahamas thumbnail

After two nights at sea, we reach the island of Eleuthera and dock at the Cape Eleuthera Harbour Club.  Eleuthera is a skinny, 110 mile long island with one highway running  from the southern tip to the infamous celebrity hideaway Harbour Island to the North.

Bahamas Day 3: Fish Above and Below the Surface thumbnail

Via Blackbeard’s Cruises For $899USD…

Hello Bahamas: Winning Big at Atlantis thumbnail

Bahamas Day 0 I arrived in Nassau to warm weather and immediately hopped in a cab with a woman of Bahamian descent. Chatting to her and our very friendly cab driver was a scream. They were super friendly and warm, giving me a nice taste of Bahamian hospitality. When I mentioned my summer in Cayman the…

Putting My Passport Back to Use thumbnail

The four and a half months since I left Cayman have flown by so quickly and so jam packed I barely had a chance to get itchy feet. But when I kissed our island life goodbye and returned to the big city, Mark just moved to another job and another country: the Bahamas. He’s been working…
