I'm hoping someone who lives there will reply. I'd like to know more about expat living there. I'm single, retired male. All I need is a room to sleep and bathe, make coffee. Must have internet. Must be walking distance to some kind of food supply. :) Is that too much to ask?

Hello guys. As you all know this wednesday night July1st is a full moon. Usually back home I meditate in the dark on every full moon night for an hour or so, but since I am now here in Nassau on the beach, was thinking of doing it on the beach on the night of the full moon. My beach is the one between the breezes hotel and bahamar. Anyone out there with beach access would like to participate in a collective meditation session on the night of the full moon? We can talk about techniques, and do it together, with the hope that the group will grow and expand into other interested topics of conversation. We could start at sun down and stop when is dark, Or start at around 8/9 and go on till midnight. Any thoughts?

If we lived in Nassau we'd join you but we're on Abaco. Loved your bit about drums on the beach too, wish we could have come to listen. :-)

Arriving July 29 Freeport with my wife and 2 dauthers, is it safe ? to walk, to rent a car, and visite the island....What are the must see or due... thanks for your help
clcizme replied on June 24, 2015 with:
Welcome to this forum and greetings from GBI. I have lived here many years and find it to be extremely safe. Rent a car from any of the agencies, all good, but we recommend Brads Car Rental. They have an office at the airport to the left as you leave the baggage claim area. Things to do are plentiful, it all depends on your desires. My list of top to dos include snorkeling, fishing, beach combing, the National Park ( for hiking, swimming, exploring), Calabash Tours for kayaking, birding and butterflies (Shammie is a walking encyclopedia on those topics), food is good everywhere. For most things recommendations would be based on your desires and budget. If you need some more specific info, write again and I will try to be as helpful as possible. Enjoy GBI.

Ok, I have lived here a month (but visitors kept me busy) all are gone and it is time to start LIVING.. here. Husband is in and out of the country often, I work during the day, but would like to meet some of you for a drink or a coffee, and maybe start making some expat plans. Anyone up for it? I currently live in Sandyport.

Inna11223 initially posted:
Hello, My husband and I with our 4 year old son are considering moving to Nassau for a couple of years. Can someone please recommend best gated communities to live in (my husband's office is going to be all the way on the west side of the island) and schools that we should be considering. Also wondering, is the crime really as much of an issue as it appears to be from reading on line? What kind of lifestyle do people have if one is no working? Do people tend to stay in their communities? I am concerned if I am not working, I will be very very bored...... The biggest concern is of course safety of our son. Thank you for all the honest answers!
breija replied on June 22, 2015 with:
Hi Inna, Where to live - A lot will depend upon whether you have a living allowance and how much. If your husband's office is "way out on the west side" then anywhere from Cable Beach and west is good. However, there are huge differences in the communities. As a non-working expat spouse, Sandyport, Old Fort Bay, and Lyford Cay will offer a lot of opportunities to meet others in similar situations. For schools, Meridian, Tambearly, and Lyford Cay School would likely be your best options. All can be found online. A lot of non-working moms are able to connect with one another and find social activity. Otherwise, it is good to be sure to have things that you enjoy that you can do. Read through some of my previous posts for more ideas. As for crime, if you remain vigilant and aware of your surroundings you should be fine, especially if you life in a gated community. Being a non-working spouse can definitely contribute to boredom, and it is important to think about what you want to get out of your time here. Feel free to PM with more specific questions.
