Local Experts: Bahamas, Noelle Khalila Nicolls

Don’t ask me how drinking purified water from the muddy hoof impression left by a wild elephant enhanced the quality of my life. It just did—that is the power of travel. Live Better. Travel More is the motto behind my island-hopping travel blog The Domestic Tourist. I quit my job as a newspaper editor to document my wild adventures exploring the 700 islands of The Bahamas. My work has been featured in National Geographic and Caribbean Beat, but just in case travel writing doesn’t pay the bills, I also run my own marketing consulting company.
