Silpada SOAR Trip to the Bahamas!!

We just got back from the Bahamas. Mendie won this trip with Silpada ( all expenses paid! ). Silpada is the company that she sells jewelry for. SOAR stands for Sisters On A Ride. We stayed at the Atlantis Resort on Paradise Island. Let's just say that the island is appropriately named. The resort was absolutely beautiful. The architectural detail was amazing. Every detail was thought through. You could get lost admiring the architecture of the resort itself. They had so much to do and it was all free with the Hotel. They had some really cool aquariums! They were everywhere! They have the best water park. the "lazy river" is the coolest I have been on. It had calm water, rapids, waves, and elevators for the slides. We just sat there and enjoyed the ride. This was our favorite part of the water park. It was very relaxing to just sit and float. Way cool! They also have some some "serious" slides for the adventurous at heart. They where in the Mayan Pyramid. The Leap of Faith is the slide that goes straight down, and I mean straight down. You actually leave the slide for a minute. This goes so fast, that the shark tank that you go through is just a blur. Pretty exhilarating and not for the faint at heart. I was proud of Mendie for going through with it. You go girl!

The water at the beach was as clear as bottled water. Standing in the surf, chest deep, we could see our feet. Absolutely amazing. The temp was like bathwater. At a sunrise walk one morning, we ended up in the water at 7 am. The girls had a chance to hit the famous Straw Market. Not sure why they call it that, because the didn't sell straw and the building was not made of straw. Who knows? It was sorta stinky, culturally educating, and had some great deals.

The end of the trip was capped off by a huge party. They had some native "Junkaroo" performers. Junkanoo is local celebration of the liberation of the slaves. Google it! Pretty interesting story! Silpada definitely holds nothing back when throwing a party.

I cannot believe that we were able to go on this trip through the hard work of my wonderful wife and the gracious incentives from Silpada. I am so proud of my wife and her business. This trip makes it way easier to be supportive of her business. I can now proudly call her my sugar mama! Silpada is awesome! I am already looking forward to the Mayan Riviera next year.
