A Trip to The Bahamas Can Beat the Winter Time Blues
Snow, Rain, and Sleet. These wintertime activities lead some people to sing the blues and long for warmer days and the promise of spring. I am amazed at how many people do not really care for snow. For me, I love the sights of falling snow and my doggies playing in the snow. However, if you are one of those people who are looking for cheap holidays, you are not alone. Cheap doesn’t mean it’s not fun and memorable. You can have a great vacation and not break the bank.
Many people set their sights on warmer climates and enjoy popular destinations on a budget. Travel websites like Dealchecker are offering great getaways to many popular destinations, like The Bahamas.
Even though my hubby and I enjoy the snow, we love to visit cities and countries in various climates. The Bahamas vacation, almost two years, was a vacation to remember. When we boarded the plane for Florida, it was snowing. We were going to a completely different climate. It was 54 degrees in Missouri and 80 degrees in the Bahamas.
Seeing the clear blue ocean in Nassau is breath-taking and I recommend that everyone takes a trip to this beautiful place.
In Nassau, we visited Fort Charlotte.
Our tour guide was so informative, telling us about the fort. Built in 1789, the Fort was meant to protect the island from pirate invaders. Despite the expansive size of the fort, it was never involved in any battles.
It was very interesting to go down into the Fort, seeing where soldiers were stationed.
One important point to mention. I always made sure that if I took anything out of my bag, I made sure that all my important items were put back in.
For example, our passports. That travel bag is great because it had so many different compartments. It is unisex so I or my husband could carry it.
The Bahamas also has many open air shopping. You can barter with the locals for some great deals. You can find from everything necklaces to handbags. If authentic Bahama-made gifts are important to you, make sure to ask the vendor. Another thing you can do is look at the price tags or inside the clothing piece. Sometimes you think you are getting a great souvenir, but the tag may say “Made In China”. Make sure you do your homework if having a real souvenir is the only option for you.
These pictures bring back so many joyous memories. I think that it is time for my hubby and I to think about planning another trip. Where would you like to go on your dream vacation?
