Welcome to Derencia Travels! I’m Derencia, a Bahamian travel blogger.
What made you want to start a travel blog?
Do you want the long story or the short story? I’ll give you the medium one, lol. In 2015, while completing an internship I interacted with a girl who was completing a study abroad in The Bahamas; my home. During her seven weeks stay she enjoyed so much that my islands had to offer. She went to the massive waterpark at Atlantis, went to Harbour Island for the day, snorkeled and scuba dived in our beautiful blue waters and much more. I was super excited for her, however, that made me realize that within a little over a month she had experienced The Bahamas more than I had in all my years of living here. From that moment on, I knew that I had to make a change. I have to experience and explore the beauty and wonder of The Bahamas and I have to tell everyone about it. Okay, so that may have been the long story. My bad!
What can I expect from your blog?
You can expect purely Bahamian “tings”. While, I will travel to different places around the world, I am most interested in highlighting the wonders of the Bahamian islands. Where to stay, what to do and most importantly, what to eat. I got you. Trying to decide if you want to go to Eleuthera or Exuma for baecation? I got you. Planning a staycation in Nassau or just wanted to try a new restaurant for dinner? I got you.
P.S. I am a Senior Contributor on TripAdvisor and have been reviewing since 2015. I’ve written about my experiences in America, Canada, Jamaica and of course, The Bahamas. You can check out my reviews here.
