Bumming around the Bahammas


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

After biking a loop around the scenic periphery  of Nassau, we needed food, but not just any food, something unique, something local. 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 locally owned restaurants. Featured at most of these establishments was the shining culinary jewel of the  Bahamas- conch. We were knew we had to try the conch.

Our meal was delicious. The conch was sweet and tender.  The service was super friendly and surprisingly quick. 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.

And memories...
