People travel to places like the Bahamas to get away from it all, to relax and decompress. Just like anywhere else though the individual islands of the Bahamas are each different and definitely have their own personalities. I’ve only visited a few of the many different islands, but even those experiences were very different from one another. To help us better understand what there is to see and do in The Bahamas this week I interviewed travel expert Angie Orth who knows more about the islands than anyone else I’ve met.
