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?
