TAKEN: FEBRUARY 6th, 2018
As any of my avid readers know, I live for, and love to travel.
People often ask how we can afford to hit as many destinations as we do, and it is simple. We set a budget for the year and stick to it. Any online deals I come across are simply a much appreciated bonus.
One of the best deals EVER, was booked on Black Friday in the fall of 2017.
Five days and four nights, all inclusive, on beautiful Cable Beach in Nassau, Bahamas. Less than a three-hour flight and an oceanfront king room, for $805pp via West Jet.
Anyway, not knowing much about the island, other than Baha Mar was usually out of our price range, I figured I should research. My first entry into Google, things to do in Nassau Bahamas included the date ranges of our mid week stay.
I immediately discovered that the filming of the morning show Live with Kelly (Ripa) and Ryan (Seacrest) was being filmed live at the Atlantis Resort while we were there. I filled out all of the online paperwork to get free tickets, including submitting our photo which was a prerequisite; and the tickets arrived via email a couple of days later.
We arrived early, in the hopes to get near the front but little did we know the seats were filled from back to front and we were in the very last row. Not a problem, as that gave me the ability to stand on my chair and take great photos.
As the show was about to start (you can see Kelly signing an autograph above) I held up my camera and began to yell my name.
RHONDI… RHONDI…. RYAN it’s RHONDI...OVER HERE.
How shocked was I, when he toward me and yelled back HELLLLLO RHONDI!
And just like that, I got what I would classify as my only great photo, whilst acting like a member of the crazy paparazzi culture!
Definitely a travel moment I will remember forever!!
