Bonaire 🇧🇶

We continue with #Bonaire. As you can see from the photos it is beautiful. There are alot of hotel casino properties along the waterfront. The area is known for its salt flats and attracts flamingos.

Did you know that flamingos are born white? The minerals in the salt give them the pink color. 

 These are slave huts. Since it took nearly a day to walk here to work, slaves lived here during the week. 

There are continuous changes here on the island. New hotels and clearing of old , there are no hurricanes but they still receive damage from high tides during the rainy season.

Bonaire is a popular dive spot , a boat is not required due to the way the shore is you can just walk into the water.

About nomadatheart85

I have moved a lot in my lifetime. I also love cars, so loving travel is logical. My first attempt at being my own travel agent came after an exasperating experience in 2001. I had booked a Disney Vacation Package it was to be our first far away vacation as a family and my children’s first visit to Disney World. Through our travel agent I made the arrangements which included a direct flight, transportation, and our hotel with trip insurance. We were scheduled to fly out in November 2001 but then September 11th happened and that changed everything. First there were a lot of air restrictions besides being afraid to travel. I made some calls to see what would happen and found out the flights would be changed. The regulations no longer allowed for any direct flights due to concerns of hijacking and carrying too much fuel. I called the travel agent to cancel and was told the insurance did not cover that type of cancellation. I was furious. What was the point of paying for the Insurance? I was told we could possibly call the airlines for a credit and drive, which was not an option. After weeks of worrying we made the trip. The flight originally was 4hrs but now took 21 hrs but we had a great time. From then on I am the only one in charge of my travel arrangements. Check out my Disney Quick Tips.
