Going Local: Experiences and Encounters on the Road, by Tripatini member Nicholas Kontis
New Airlift/Newish Resort Open Tiny, Tranquil Bimini in the Bahamas Further to the World
The Bahamas’ westernmost island group (made up of North Bimini, South Bimini, and several even tinier island such as East Bimini and Cat Cay), have been a favored getaway - especially from nearby South Florida (just 50 miles away) - since the early 20th century. Favored by the jet stream, with a population of barely 2,000, it very much conserves the flavor of the olde-tyme Caribbean of yore, and its clear, paradisiacal waters have been playgrounds for bathers, snorkelers, divers, and especially deep-sea fishing enthusiasts drawn by big game fish such as marlin and swordfish, fed by the tales of Ernest Hemingway, who worked on classics here such as Islands in the Stream and To Have and Have Not. read post
Many if not most countries of the world, of course, set aside choice pieces of territory to protect and often showcase precious natural environments. But thanks to its size and a conservationist ethos dating back to the mid-19th century, few countries offer the number and diversity of natural parks – state and national – as the United States of America, from “sea to shining sea”, as its national anthem poetically puts it. And its 400 national parks are particularly spectacular for all sorts of different reasons.
Of these 400, ten are particular stars, and I've listed them below, in alphabetical order; limiting this list to ten was very tough indeed, meaning that other glorious parks you’ll have to browse here; what I’ve tried to do with this list is curate for a diversity of geography, experiences and landscapes. If you feel I’ve been remiss in overlooking one, please let us know in comments below! read post
