Pink sands, clear water, blue sky, and gorgeous people – let me tell you about the most beautiful island in the world: Briland. (Harbour Island – if you don’t know, you better ask somebody.)
Want to know how this Bahamian island paradise puts the ‘b‘ in bthenewgreen? Three words: old school rules. No cars clogging the roads and no major manufacturing with carbon emissions every three steps. And there is virtually no littering. If anybody sees you dropping trash where it doesn’t belong, they know who you are. Or, conversely, they know they don’t know who you are. In which case, who do you think you are dropping your shit on the ground? Either way, they will tell you about yourself.
Have I mentioned the electricity goes out regularly (although unpredictably)? It’s counterintuitive, but this is actually a plus and not inconvenient at all (unless you just ordered food from the shack.). This charming byproduct of being island life discourages reliance on manmade energy and the need to control everything while encouraging relaxation and camaraderie amongst your neighbors. And that’s always in style.
So you think you’re ready to experience paradise? See below:
Briland Rules to Chill By:
1. Don’t Trip: Leave your drama and your attitude in the States. And be careful about who you bring as your guest. It doesn’t matter if you’re cool but your boo is trippin’ – you will both be voted off the island.
2. Don’t Get it Twisted: What happens in Briland doesn’t automatically stay in Briland. Act a fool and you will be ridiculed. Repeatedly. But if you are an official Briland Ballah, we will keep that shit tighter than tight.
When visiting Briland, you must stay at The Royal Palm Hotel (www.royalpalmhotel.com). I’m telling you – there is no better place to stay. And it’s the first step to becoming a Ballah. (Shhhhh, don’t ask questions – we’ll tell you how many steps there are when you get there.)
Keep ballin’ y’all,
Catch my chic.
