Bumming around the Bahammas

In Bahamas on November 28, 2009 at 2:08 am

We let our noses and stomachs lead the way. I’ve been to the Bahamas before, there was nothing touristy that we needed to do. We rented a motor bike and created our own excursion.

Sustainable tourism tip:
Eat local whenever you can. We were in Nassau, heading into the touristy area of Atlantis. Under the bridge that will bring you to Atlantis, is an amazing array of local restaurants. We were all about the conch. I can not even tell you how delicious the meal was. Everyone was super friendly. One of the restaurant owners even brought us wine and joined us for a drink and chat.
It was fantastic: great food, cultural exchange, money pumped back into the hands of the locals and not some fancy foreign owned restaurant with an overpriced menu.
*Remember, when in doubt ask a local. Trust me, they always know where the best food is.
