Hour 2

Topics Include:

Many hotels and resorts will talk about having an all-inclusive package. While many amenities will be included in such offers customers will most likely face other costs once they arrive at the resort. Breezes Bahamas, and other SuperClubs resorts, offer a super-inclusive package. It is a one stop deal with a fully upfront price. Not some, but all drinks are included in the package and there is no limit in number. All restaurants and activities are included and the resort provides a large variety of options.

Breezes Bahamas recently underwent a 15 million dollar refurbishment during which all bathrooms were completely redone. Love seats, glass paneling, granite countertops and a 32 inch flat screen plasma television were added to each room. There is also a brand new air-conditioning system.

Water sports include windsurfing, sailing, kayaking, and waterskiing. Land sports include volleyball, basketball, tennis (with courts lit for night play), trapeze, trampoline and the first ever rock climbing wall in the Bahamas.  The resort has a spa and a fully equipped fitness center and sponsors other special activities like sumo wrestling, toga parade and pajama parties.

General Manager Jackson Weech is involved in a mentoring program for young people who want to get involved in the tourism industry. The economy of the Bahamas depends on tourism as the industry makes up two thirds of the gross domestic product. Weech is proud to help build the next cadre of hotel managers.

Next week “Traveling Feet” will focus on Abraham Lincoln. There will be guests from Chesterwood which is the summer home of Daniel Chester French, sculptor of “Lincoln in the Chair” statue inside the Lincoln Memorial.

All roads lead to either Ireland or Berkshire County. Follow Route 2 from the Berkshires along the historic Mohawk Trail through the Pioneer Valley and you can travel to Boston. Stephanie reflected on the connections to Ireland and the Berkshires as she watched the inaugural ceremony. When Bono performed on the steps of the Lincoln memorial it brought to mind the Clarence Hotel on the River Liffey in Ireland, opened by U2 rockers Bono and the Edge. Yo-Yo Ma, another inaugural performer, has a home in the Berkshires.
