We’re back! With the hopeful rise in domestic tourism, it’s only fitting that we bring back the “Where Ya Been” series. Exploring The Bahamas is so enjoyable and I am counting down the weeks to my next out island adventure. I’m not sure as yet where I’m going, but the ideas of Bimini, Grand Bahama and Eleuthera are dancing around in my head. Yeah, I really need to finalize my plans. If you’re new to my blog or just haven’t read the previous posts in this series, you can check them out here and here.
Picture this, it’s 6 am, the ticket agent is calling last call for your 7 am flight, and you’re the only one of four at the airport. This was me. It was my first girls trip and I’m wondering where are my friends?! Thoughts of us missing the flight, the possibility of travelling alone and not knowing what to do or where to go crossed my mind. At this point I was just hoping they would all arrive soon. By 6:30, three out of four of us had arrived and after seven (yes s e v e n) unsuccessful phone calls, lucky number four was awake and on her way. After, prayers, hopes, almost tears and jokes, we were all boarded and headed to Exuma. Within twenty minutes of flight, the water started to do this really, like really blue thing, like clear blue, sky blue, just beauti-blu-ful! Yes, I know that was super corny, but you get it right?
April 11th, I headed to the airport around 6:30 am to fly into Ft. Lauderdale for a new adventure. The anticipation had been building for two months now and it was finally the day that I would be embarking on Royal Caribbean’s: Independence of the Seas for my first cruise experience. I did not know what to expect, but I was excited and absolutely thrilled to be taking my first trip of the year. I planned the trip for my mom and, I just hoped for the best. I knew that I would find something on board to do, but I wasn’t sure that she would have a good time. She did though, she really did!
