I just came back from a much needed vacation, a cruise to the Bahamas, with my friends. I kept thinking what will I write about? But I think I’ll just show you my experiance. This trip was really an opportunity for me to do something different, see something new and travel with ladies who mean a lot to me. In my 28th year I am recognizing what my mind, body and soul needs, and this month it needed some fun, adventure and laughter. . . So here are moments of me and my friends in the Grand Bahamas!
We also shared some great meals together
Every time I travel I like to spend time talking to locals. I don’t just travel for the thrill and excitement. I love to learn about people and other environments. Since we were on a cruise, I didnt get a good grasp on what life on the Bahamas is truly like. But I do have a peice of what it is like, which is probably for another blog.
What I learned
While speaking with natives. I learned that foreigners own a lot of Bahamian land. Gas is averaged at $4.30 and minimum wage is $4.15. How can this be? That means natives work an hours shift to barely afford 1 gallon of gas… hmmm. Many areas I traveled were touristy places, so all I saw is homes and hotels of vacationers. The locals lived on other islands, which I would love the opportunity to see soon. While walking through the shopping areas a met a man selling juices. He was telling me all the healing properties in the juice. Lemon, ginger and no natural sugars. He also showed me plants he sells for medicinal uses. I really wish I could have sat and talked with you more. He seemed to be so insightful about the land and health. One of my main focuses.
As you can see I learned a minimal amount of info, but I still learned something. So that’s good! This has sparked so much adventure and curiosity in me. I can’t wait to return.
