Freeport in the Bahamas

By Abbey Scott per 5

Why go to Freeport?

There are a lot of fun things to do in Freeport. You can go swimming with the dolphins, parasailing, Cooper's Castle, or to Theo's Wreck. Theo's Wreck is a wreck that you can scuba dive to and look at. Cooper's Castle is a house for a guy that declared himself king of Freeport but isn't really king. You can tour his house. Parasailing is a parachute that has seats and you sit on it and get towed by a boat. Sounds fun!

History and Culture: Write a brief history and culture about your destination.

"On Grand Bahama Island, the sea has always provided. The earliest settlers, the Siboney Indians, were a people who lived off conch and fishing, and the shells and jewelry they left behind form the majority of what we know about them. Their remains suggest that they were here as early as 7,000 years ago, but disappeared."


"In the less developed outer islands, handicrafts include basketry made from palm fronds. This material, commonly called "straw", is plaited into hats and bags that are popular tourist items. Another use is for so-called "Voodoo dolls," even though such dolls are the result of the American imagination and not based on historic fact."

These stand out to me because they use descriptive words to tell you about the history and culture of this beautiful place. We need to be able to know about this going there so I know the back round of these people. They have a cool back round and awesome history. You can know what some of the symbols are and knick-knacks are for. History and culture are a big part of projects.

You might be wondering why I am staying at a lower end hotel. Well, if you are out of the hotel as much as I am then you don't really need a high end hotel.

Problems and Solutions: While traveling a problem may occur, think about those problems and how you would solve them.

Key Gets Lost : I Will Buy A New One With Emergency Money

Missed Plane : I Will Ask For A Flight Change

Lost Passport :I Will Go To Emeassy

Lost Luggage : I Go To The Airline That I Was Flying On


These are only some of the problems that could happen while traveling. Out of all of the problems that could happen I would rather have a lost key. That would only be a minor bump in the road. There is a lot that could go wrong. I just hope that this does not happen to me.

Optional: About the traveler. Who are you? Have you ever traveled?

Abbey Scott

I have traveled out of state in the U.S.A. to Pennsylvania, Ohio, Hawaii, Iowa, Illinois, California, and South Carolina. I have only traveled out of the U.S.A. to Mexico and Canada plus this summer to Europe (Munich, Paris, and London).

Conclution

I chose to go with a family friend Heather Beye. I chose to go with her because she makes me laugh and we always have fun together. I spent most of my money doing my activities. This is affecting my trip by having to save money on other things. Trying to find activities I am so close to the ocean the town is so far away. I solved this by renting a car that opened my activities. I loved doing this project I do this a home when ever we go on a trip.

Reviews on the Hotel

"It is a quite place - not much activities at the resort. Lucky to get the building near the beach. beach need more cleaning / attention as lot of stones and glass wash up from the sea. Great sand beach. Room Washroom need some quality renovation work. Kitchen cutlery needs a refresh old equipment. Staff and Service is great."

This is one of the many reviews they have.

"We loved it. Off season and quiet. Friendly people."

This is a short review but says a lot of things about this place. After looking at these reviews I see I have picked one of the friendly hotels. These reviews cleared up a lot about the staff. They seem really nice.
