Customs when entering The Bahamas

The Customs officers in The Bahamas were deeply suspicious of my motives for visiting their country on two separate occasions within one week. My itinerary was taking me from Grand Cayman to Montego Bay and then on to Nassau, before heading over to the Turks and Caicos Islands. I was returning from Providenciales to Nassau and then flying to Great Exuma from where I was returning to Vancouver via Toronto. I was travelling on my own throughout the whole trip. When I arrived in Nassau the first time, there was an absolutely massive queue of...

Cruising on NCL’s Epic – Day 8, Part 3

Cruising on NCL’s Epic – Day 8, Part 3

We lucked out and got a Town Car back from Atlantis to the Epic. They wait in the taxi line with the other taxis. So it’s luck of the draw. Eleven bucks and we were back at the ship. We raced through the Straw Market to grab a few souvenirs and the best water ice I’ve ever had in my life before getting back on board. The former is packed with handmade items form the island, lots of straw items (hence the name) and the latter is packed with flavor I haven’t found in any other incarnation of the snow cone, of which I am a very big fan. Back on...

Cruising on NCL’s Epic – Day 8, Part 2

We spent every minute we had  at Atlantis riding the slides again and again; checking out the aquarium exhibits; and wishing we had more time. I would certainly recommend coming for the day rather than not at all. But, if you can come and spend a few days, that clearly in the way to go. Mainly to have more time, but also to avoid the dreaded locker line where we waited a half hour for one cashier dealing with credit card after credit card (they don’t accept cash) for all the folks who needed lockers, which is pretty much everyone not staying...

Cruising on NCL’s Epic – Day 8, Part 1

At a friend’s suggestion, I decided to take my daughter to Atlantis for the day as the Epic would be docked in Nassau in the Bahamas. I could not have been happier with my decision. Unfortunately, the ship didn’t even dock until noon. So we were already off to a late start before we even got started. And we had to return to the ship my 5:30. So I knew it was going to be tight. Then, we made the mistake of taking the water taxi and it was hot, crowded, and SLOW. Do not believe them when they tell you they have a boat leaving “now.” “Now” means...

Cruising The Epic: Pre-Trip

I am headed to Miami with my junior traveler in tow to take a spin on Norwegian Cruise Line’s brand new ship, the Epic. It is a ship of massive proportions with a rock wall, water slide, “ice” rink, two bowling alleys, a variety of restaurants and theaters, as well as cabins ranging from hip studios to private villas. I’m excited to check it out for myself. Although, I admit, I’m nervous to be with so many people and am curious to see how the ship handles the crowd of people it was designed to hold. Tomorrow night, we will fly to Miami to...

If you don’t know Abaco, you don’t know the Bahamas

Posted by on 5:03 am in Bahamas, ITKT Blogs, Jenny Block | 0 comments

I’ve never been much of a Bahamas girl. Just the word itself makes me think of Spring Break and cheesy hotels. So you can imagine my surprise when I went to Abaco in the Bahamas and found myself in the most charming of beach destinations. I stayed at the Abaco Beach Resort which offers hotel room, suites, condos, and boat slips. The marina was quite full when I was there and I liked the feel of that. I went sailing a lot as a kid and as much as I loved being out on the bay, I equally loved the time we spent at local marinas, enjoying...

Donning Fins in Abaco, Bahamas

Posted by on 11:52 am in Bahamas, ITKT Blogs | 0 comments

While I was in the Abacos in the Bahamas, I had the happy occasion of going snorkeling. I had to search around for a good place to get in because the water was so rough that day. However, I was in excellent hands. Award winning guide Brendal of Brendal’s Dive Center found me a calm, clear location with lots to see. He then took me to a tiny, deserted shore where he made me a stupendous lunch of grilled fish and other fruits of the sea. Then came the best part. After lunch, I waded into the shallows and sat in the warm, blue waters. I...

Mama Got a Brand New Bag…In Abaco, Bahamas

Posted by on 11:14 am in Bahamas, ITKT Blogs | 0 comments

As I was on the tiny shuttle from the tarmac to the airport I spotted it. A tiny bag with a patch that read Man-O-War Cay, Abaco Bahamas, Norman Albury Sailmakers. I spent a lot of time on a sailboat as a kid and the brightly colored canvas brought back fond memories of lazy days on the bay and long tournaments of Yatzee. I asked the woman holding the bag where I might find one and she gave me the information of a tiny little shop in Abaco. Luckily, that was exactly where I was headed. I took a ferry from the Abaco Beach Resort where I was...
