We’ve just concluded our annual Bahamas Boy Trip Adventure so I thought it would be fun to share the story behind this phenomenal tradition. Our boy trip consists of a week of fun in the sun with my two little buddies at the Atlantis Resort at Paradise Island in the Bahamas. I turn off my cell phone and disconnect from my e-mail for a week to dedicate 100% of my time and energy to my boys. The entire trip from start to finish is all about having fun and building amazing memories together that will last a lifetime!
Way back in 2010, my twin boys were just five years old. I travel a lot for business and had recently missed out on a weekend of playtime with them. I was airborne heading home to Orlando thinking about what sort of special treat I could do to make up for our lost time apart. As I cruised along at 10,000 feet, I looked out the window at the bright sun, then glanced at my airplane’s display – and there it was, a moment of clarity and inspiration as I spotted the Bahamas in the upper left corner of the map. It was one of those times in life that you know you’ve just stumbled upon something special, even without experiencing it yet. I landed safely and then formulated my plan for what would become the legendary Bahamas Boy Trip.
