Have you ever saw something and it just took your breath away? Well for me, it’s every time I go home to the place I grew up - a little island called Exuma, in the Bahamas. The view from the airplane just takes my breath away every time, like it’s the the first time I am seeing it. I would not trade my home island for anything in this world.

I always tell my family members and friends that I know for sure their is a fat kid living inside of me. Bahamian dishes are hands-down the best food ever.
