Halfway Through

I am just about halfway through this Bahama vacation and I am honestly starting to get home sick.  Believe it or not I actually miss cooking my own food and even some of the rituals I am used too.  I am sure you are saying…”Boo hoo, at least you are in a gorgeous place with plenty of sunshine and beaches everywhere.  I agree and I will probably miss this when I am back home.  The biggest challenge I am personally facing here is the lack of tea.  I haven’t found anything good outside of Starbucks and it isn’t the Tazo brand.  I have fallen in love with the China Green Tips and am also enjoying the English Breakfast.  Now that I finally have a microwave in my room I can heat water without messing with the coffee  maker which always makes me a bit nervous.  It isn’t how I do it at home but lets face it I am in survival mode.  So as it is for now I am missing my tea cabinet, cubbies, drawers, boxes, cubes, and bags that I have it all sorted in.  I will survive but still it is a little difficult.

As for the Bahamas I am staying on Paradise Island which is a part of Nassau and it is amazing everyday.  The weather is perfect.  I am beyond tan and my daughter officially has gills.  We spend everyday at the Atlantis Resort and we still haven’t seen it all.  Well, there is no rush since I have so much more time left to go.

    I know what you mean about missing home cooking, and doing things your way, and your house really when you’re away. I’m sure the Bahamas is wonderful, but it”ll be nice to be back in your “castle” with all your own teas and kettles.
    PS: Will we seeing pics from your vacation then?

    • Yes, you will see pictures but not until I get back home. Right now I will have to wait until I get home to add pictures. The Internet here is horrible. Of course our room is in between access points.

  2. Sounds like you need a tea wallet. Mine has permanent residence in my purse so that I’m never without a good cup of tea.

  3. Nicole, I would have brought my own tea but I wasn’t sure of I could since I was traveling internationally. Turns out I was being too cautious and now I am paying for it. I guess I will know for next time. 🙁

    Bahamas is nice but it never sound to me like a true tea place.
    And the international travel thing could have been a problem for tea (it depends on the local regulations).

    • I agree and at the same time disagree. They were under British rule and the influence is obvious on the island. Even the local Starbucks has a large portion of the menu dedicated to tea. However, what I found lacking isn’t the lack of tea drinkers but rather the of lack better quality teas.
