News Media Wake-Up Call: “The Bahamas” is NOT Destroyed! Do You Know What “The Bahamas” Even Means?

As your personal travel expert, you can expect to hear much, much more from me and the REAL EXPERTS on TRAVEL IN THE BAHAMAS; those who live and work in the Bahama Islands and are involved in travel, tourism and the  hospitality industry and who know what is really going on there in the weeks and months to come because the stories you are seeing in vivid color on TV news are terribly, horribly skewed.  While there is no doubt that those who live, work and have been accustomed to enjoying what Abaco and Grand Bahama Island have had to offer the visitor, they have undergone a great natural assault from which we hope they all quickly recover. But you probably have the impression from recent days of reporting that “The Bahamas” is one massive place and that The Bahamas is a place that is now uninhabitable and not fit to visit. That could not be further from the reality that, while Abaco and Grand Bahama Island took the brunt of the damage of awful Hurricane Dorian, where we can only hope helpful people and supplies pour in to rebuild spirits and structures,  there are at least 14 individual islands and island groups that range over a 600 mile distance in the Atlantic that are ALL  part of the untouched Bahamas that are in perfect condition and doing  business as usual unharmed by this storm!

If anything, now is the time to visit Nassau, Paradise Island and all of the other individual island destinations and groups of islands that are part of  what is referred to as “The Bahamas” and this catchphrase name has resulted in so many knowing so little about the vastness of what each of the islands of The Bahamas unique offers visitors to the massive area that stretches over a 100,000 square mile region in the Atlantic Ocean. It is this travel expert’s plan and vision to work with the tourism leaders of The Bahamas to help my US audience and global fans on radio, on TV, on the internet, on iHeart Radio, TuneIn Radio and iTunes and those who watch my TV shows nationally in the US and on ROKU to learn the names of each of the islands of The Bahamas  and to know what each distinctly has to offer the visitor with real understandings of the individuality of each destination within The Bahamas with a goal of making the names of the islands and elevate the knowledge for travelers of where to stay, what to do, where to eat and dine, and to get to know this massive expanse of tourism paradise   the way each knows his/her own neighborhood.  While most travelers are familiar with, minimally, the names Nassau and Paradise Island, even most sophisticated travelers can’t name more than a total of four or five of the islands of The Bahamas that make the in-the-know-traveler visit and return frequently. It’s time we dive into that educational process especially given that these islands did not interface with Hurricane Dorian and would love the opportunity to show off what makes their unique destination within The Bahamas special, welcoming, hospitable and ready to share the reasons for their pride in their island with visitors.

Given the news coverage of the destinations of Abaco and Grand Bahama Island as it relates to The Bahamas, I expect that, if there were a fire in Botswana, the news media would report that, “Africa is on fire!” The pounding copy across TV screens trumpeting, “Bahamas Destroyed by Dorian,” delivers, once again, a skewed and unbalanced story. While the losses of life and property on Abaco and Grand Bahama Island are, without doubt, horrific to absorb, as it relates to the impression one gets in seeing and hearing the news delivered in this fashion gives the viewer the idea that tourism to The Bahamas is at the end of its road. The fact is that those losses, while taking a terrible toll on our hearts as caring people and on the families who are suffering extreme losses from that direct hit by Dorian, it is disturbing to see tourism to The Bahamas thrown aside with repeated news indicating that, in essence, you can cross The Bahamas off your list of places to visit anytime soon!  That is just not the case and it is for that reason that I need to don my “Super Travel Girl” cape and fly in to use our powerful set of communications tools in broadcasting and online to help get the real story of what is available in perfect condition, with perfect places in a paradise called The Bahamas that is the umbrella name of a nation made up of wonderful islands, many of which  you are unaware of but which are just waiting to welcome you to experience their exquisite tourism offerings.

In the coming weeks and months, we plan to talk with leaders in tourism in every nook and cranny on the islands we refer to as if it were one mass: The Bahamas.  I suspect that my audiences will have a long list of MUST VISIT destinations in The Bahamas that grows as we explore more and more islands and learn what makes each uniquely special and different and discover unique ways to make those visits by air and boat.

Visiting The Bahamas now is also a wonderful way to help Abaco and Grand Bahama Islands to rebuild by supporting the government of The Bahamas who can then support the rebuilding process more robustly.  The friendly Bahamian people on every island in The Bahamas are waiting to greet  you with open arms in beautiful surroundings offering every travel experience from Beachcomber’s Delights to Pampered Luxury!  You’ll find exactly what you are looking for from your vacation experience and you won’t be disappointed!

Now is the time to pounce on making your plans to travel to The Bahamas. By the laws of human nature and the laws of Supply  & Demand, there’s a very good chance that you’ll find some amazing promotions and bargains to add to the enticement to get over the stories you’ve seen and heard and see for yourself that The Bahamas are alive and well and waiting for you. So what are you waiting for?
