I spent the past week in one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been- Freeport, Bahamas. When my Mom invited me on the trip a few months ago, I couldn’t pass it up! I went with my Mom, Dad and little sister, Katherine (we missed my brother who is away at college).
We left our house at the crack of dawn last Saturday and headed to Newark airport. Now let it be know that I do not enjoy flying. I am super anxious and do not understand how all of those people, and all of those suitcases stay in the air. I just don’t.
After a not-so-scary flight, we landed in Ft. Lauderdale, I looked out the window and set sights on this beautiful little puddle jumper of a plane… then I saw my suitcase.
I knew we were going to have to take it to the island. Luckily, I’ve flown on a baby plane a couple of times in the past so I wasn’t completely freaking out- but my nerves still kicked in. Something about my wingspan being smaller than the planes width, and my ability to touch the pilot from my seat doesn’t sit well with me.
However, my 16 year old sister is a champ, and volunteered to hold my hand. 🙂
The flight was no longer than 40 minutes, and before you knew it we were in the beautiful Bahamas! It was dark by this time, but we hopped in our rental car and headed to our hotel. Fun fact…in the Bahamas they drive on the left side of the road.
We got to our hotel and settled in. My sister and I shared a gorgeous room with a balcony over looking the ocean.
We hadn’t eaten all day so we went to this little greek spot across the street for a quick dinner, my appetite is basically non-existent when I fly, so I just had some Tzatziki sauce with warm pita chips- so good!
We went back to our rooms and completely crashed. We were exhausted- plus we wanted to be up bright and early to lay out!
We spent the first day pool side. This guy played his steel drums all day, it couldn’t have been any more tropical of a setting.
I spent the day completely engulfed in The Huger Games and my pina colada (I’m not sure which of the two is more amazing!)
We shared some wonton nachos poolside…
That night we went to Agave for dinner. Obviously drinks were in order!
I ordered grilled pineapple & lime glazed chicken breast with black beans, rice and golden plantains. A little spicy but still yummy 🙂
Breakfast, beach, books, and booze!
…oh and burns for Katherine who struggled to find shade LOL
Dinner was at Giovanni’s…
Dessert: mini peanut butter ice cream cone! I swear this thing was only an inch and a half tall..
We stopped to take some pictures on the way home…
I have so many more pictures to share, but I think I’m going to have to break this trip into two or three posts!
Ohh…how I miss the Bahamas already…
