Next Stop: Eleuthera



I'm headed for a press trip to Eleuthera, (El Loo thra) a Bahamian out island famous for its quiet beauty. Pink sand beaches are another Eleuthera claim to fame and you know how I love pink sand. I'll be delving into the history and culture of this 110 miles long island, which was the first European settlement in the Bahamas. I plan to take in bone fishing, a weekly fish fry jump up and hang out at Elvina's, the legendary beach side bar noted for Lenny Kravitz jam sessions. I'll be gone for the rest of the week but expect dreamy Eleuthera updates by next week.

I look forward to those posts. And thanks for including the pronounciation. I was wrecking my brain trying to figure out how to say the name. :-)

Greetings from London.

Such a wonderful life you have! I'm looking forward to seeing the pink sand, as I've never laid eyes on the stuff.

Do you have any good tips for breaking into travel writing? I'm trying to get started, but don't know how to start.
