Bahamas just were not for me

Everyone told me a day would come where I did not mesh with a destination.  I rolled my eyes when I heard this.  I was like no way, I want to go every where and I will love EVERY where, you people are crazy.

Then I went to the Bahamas.

Prior to my trip everyone was like you will love the Bahamas, it is beautiful, it is the best Caribbean island.  I heard this over and over so maybe it was talked up so much I had way too high of expectations, I also experienced bad weather so maybe that had something to do with it?

All I know I left the Bahamas disappointed.  Visiting the Bahamas has been on my bucket list since I was a kid, I grew up just knowing I wanted to go to the Bahamas.


The people were friendly and had a great vibe, but that is really the only thing I can take away from the Bahamas.

I had an excellent vacation and I know I am beyond blessed to be able to go to the Bahamas when so many people can’t afford to leave their home town, which is why I feel bad saying the Bahamas were not for me.

I didn’t have bad experiences, I didn’t leave sick, I didn’t leave with any crazy stories.  I really can’t give you a reason as to why I didn’t care for the Bahamas, except that I just didn’t feel the zing of excitement I felt in other destinations.

I visited Atlantis and while it was a beautiful resort I didn’t find myself getting my credit card out to book a stay there.  I loved the craft market but I didn’t buy as much as I normally do.


I don’t know I guess I am just not on the same wave length as other Bahama goers.   I know people love the Bahamas, which is why I am just baffled that I didn’t fall in love immediately.


Will I give the Bahamas another go?  Sure, just not any time soon.  I mean you never have to twist my arm to go anywhere after all. 🙂  I will share the different things I did soon.  I am hoping my blog will be back to normal in 2016!

I don’t know have you ever felt disappointed by a destination?
