Travel Getaways – Destination – Sunshine
While some are preparing for winter, I am dreaming of mild temperatures, sandy white beaches, and relaxing days in the sun. Join me as I take out my travel bags and travel organizers to pack for a trip to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. I will travel to the Bahamas Islands, where the weather is perfect from September to May, with temperatures averaging 70-75 degrees F. Other times are great too if you do not mind warmer temperatures. Choose an Island location that is easy to get to, and one that has activities you enjoy. Do not forget to grab the snuggles neck pillow for the flight, and sunglasses, which are a must once you arrive in the Bahamas.
The closest Island in the Bahamas is just 48 miles south of Florida, a very short flight for many of us. One of my favorite places is Freeport, Grand Bahamas Island, where the cosmopolitan cities of Freeport/Lucaya give perfect contrast to the beaches and rural areas of the countryside.
Get with fellow travelers and select a location that has activities all can enjoy. Seeing the sights may be an adventure in a new location, but choosing a location that has activities for everyone is key to a great vacation. Consider fishing, golf and tennis, water sports and of course miles of sandy beaches. Did you remember the sunglasses? Travel organizers are excellent in planning and packing appropriate items so you do not forget anything. Island foods are delicious – the fish fry on Grand Bahamas Island is not to be missed. Shopping for bargains is also a treat. Visit the straw markets, international bazaar, and gift boutiques. Also, plan together time to cherish family and friends and to create memories. I am off to the beach for the day with friends, with my aluminum water bottle, sunglasses and lots of suntan lotion. A delicious meal of fresh seafood is available a short distance down the beach. If you are tired from walking, horse back riding is an option in some locations.
Remember to book early! Pack light, using quality travel bags and travel organizers, so you will have lots of space for all of the bargains you will find. And share travel organizers with friends and family. Take your passport along, your round trip ticket, and save money from your many shopping trips for a nominal departure tax of $15 to $18. Prepare for a comfortable return flight with your snuggles neck pillow. See you in the Bahamas.
