Worthing, Christ Church, Barbados
Located on the island's unassuming south coast, down a street that doesn't even have a name (which isn't uncommon in Barbados) sits a little beach bar called the Carib. Wander up to the wood deck and smile at the Bajan waitress pulling double-duty...
After a hair-raising, two-hour bush plane ride from Paramaribo followed by a half-day hike deep into the jungles of Suriname near Kwamala, a local shaman tapped a vine to show us how to cure an ear ache. While largely unspoiled, Suriname is seeing...
Enterprise Coast Road, Oistins, Barbados, Barbados
One of the best spots in the Caribbean for surfing is Barbados. And if you're not one of the best surfers in the world (like me), one of the best breaks on the island to catch some waves has got to be Freights Bay. The added bonus is that most...
Henrys, Bridgetown, Barbados
There's simply no better place to get Caribbean spiny lobster on Barbados than Lobster Alive. Fact. Why? Because practically every lobster sold in every restaurant on the island comes through this one unassuming location. The problem is that due...
South-West, 9 Maitama Sule St, Ikoyi, Lagos, Nigeria
I am deeply, madly, insatiably in love with Lagos, Nigeria. A place that has been dubbed, "one of the worst cities in the world," has captured my heart in such a way that I fear I may never recover. Lagos is my secret love, because most of my...
Banana Island, Lekki, Nigeria
"The exclusive playground of Nigeria's obscenely wealthy," according to Forbes Magazine, Banana Island, a man-made peninsula in the lofty Ikoyi area of Lagos, is one of the most expensive neighborhoods in the world. Though you won't find any...
Nerdc Rd, Agidingbi, Ikeja, Nigeria
For a powerful, deep and groovy experience of modern Afro-beat music, visit the New Afrika Shrine, home of the late, legendary Fela Kuti's original African sound. These days you can catch his son, Femi, playing 3 nights a week if he's not on tour....
No. 457 Nnebisi Road, Lagos Island 320211, Asaba, Nigeria
House parties are ubiquitious in Lagos, especially during the holiday season. And no party is complete without scores of food to pile on your plate. Here we have quite a good representation of the kind of meal you would be blessed with, if you...
900 Convention Center Blvd, New Orleans, LA 70130, USA
After taking a wrong turn and stumbling upon the New Orleans Convention Center, I noticed an interesting nearby sculpture. The public art piece, a house in a tree, is a memorial for Hurricane Katrina. Artist Sally Heller created this sculpture...
Williams Town BS, Exuma, The Bahamas
If you partake in one culinary experience while in the Bahamas, make it Santana's "Cracked Lobster" on Little Exuma. Chef Dee fries the lobster while it's still in the shell in her "secret sauce" made with local spices from her garden. It's served...
West End, The Bahamas
Gorgeous exclusive-use villa on Grand Bahama's West End. It was great crashing here for a few days while exploring the island's overlooked national parks and pristine beaches. The local delicacies - conch fritters!! - prepared by the chefs were...
Bay St, Harbour Island, The Bahamas
Venturing to the other side of Harbour Island, I stumbled into The Landing just when they were beginning to infuse a new batch of Afro Head vodkas and rums by hand. Brilliant timing! I was quickly invited to partake in a little side-by-side...
2 Charlotte St, Nassau, The Bahamas
A local fisherman prepares a fresh dish of conch salad just caught outside a marina in Nassau, Bahamas. Every couple of minutes he would toss unwanted morsels skyward to the delight of a waiting swarm of seagulls. The conch shells as well as the...
27122 Goal Street, Dunmore Town, The Bahamas
From a members-only beach club in the 1960s, the Dunmore, on Harbour Island, has evolved into a 16-room boutique hotel whose spirit and decor evoke that era. Interior designer Amanda Lindroth oversaw a major renovation when the hotel’s...
Dunmore Town, The Bahamas
The Bahamas is one of my favorite snorkeling destinations due in large part to the perfect waters and abundance of fish. While staying on Harbour Island, I hired a charter boat to take me out to one of the many prime snorkeling spots. Typical in ...
Nassau, The Bahamas
We all owe a big thanks to the popular Beach Boys song that always leaves us with a vision of tropical adventures. My first trip out of the states was an hour long plane ride to New Providence Island, where the capital city of Nassau lies....
Staniel Cay Yacht Club, The Bahamas
It helps to be a bit of a mermaid when visiting the Caribbean, especially in the tiniest island communities like Staniel Cay in The Bahamas’ Exuma archipelago. Accessible either by charter flight or charter boat, Staniel Cay is paradise for...
Harbor Island, The Bahamas
Harbour Island is an out island of the out island Eleuthera in the Bahamas. Home to a scant 1,500 people and more golf carts than cars, Harbour Island is the perfect place to get away from it all. It’s also home to the rich and famous who visit...
Governor's Harbour, The Bahamas
Tippy's Restaurant is the place to be on the north end of Eleuthera. Located on the beach, the restaurant features amazing views and a cool, laid back atmosphere. The food is excellent and is a nice mix of seafood and American cuisine. On the...
One S Ocean Rd, Nassau, The Bahamas
When old money comes to Nassau's Paradise Island, The Ocean Club is where it prefers to stay. That's the way things have been since 1962, when the serenely posh resort opened along a dazzling stretch of sand known as Cabbage Beach. The 105-room...
Rokers Point Settlement, The Bahamas
In Rolle Town on Great Exuma an interesting experience is visiting the local bush tea woman and learning about curative herbs and fruits and how they can be blended into teas to help illness and ailments. I visited Lillie Maye Rolle's home and saw...
Paradise Island Dr, Nassau, The Bahamas
Known for its miles of cool water and towering resort peaks, Atlantis Bahamas is a summer wonderland for families on the go. But what the glossy brochures fail to calculate is the pricey tag on a family-of-four vacation to this fun-under-the-sun...
Dunmore Town, The Bahamas
As unappetizing as that may sound–this Bahamian dish is truly DIVINE! Sip Sip (on the beach) has boiled fish on their menu: Sundays only! I make sure to include Sundays in my Harbour Island travel plans just to get my fix. Sip Sip opens for lunch...
One Casino Drive, Suite 12, Paradise Island, The Bahamas
My sister freaked out when she heard that Kenny Chesney would be playing a special concert at the Atlantis Resort on Memorial Day weekend last year. She begged me to go, and with neither of us having been to the Bahamas, it was an absolutely...
