Hello friends!

Awesome! This is actually my FIRST written and stamped postcard from the Bahamas. And I received it via postcardunited! Yay! Thank you Clwells ♥

The Bahamas were the site of Columbus’ first landfall in the New World in 1492. At that time, the islands were inhabited by the Lucayan, a branch of the Arawakan-speaking Taino people. Although the Spanish never colonised the Bahamas, they shipped the native Lucayans to slavery in Hispaniola. The islands were mostly deserted from 1513 until 1648, when English colonists from Bermuda settled on the island of Eleuthera.

Did you know?
The name “Bahamas” comes from the Spanish words “baja mar”, meaning shallow water or sea.

I send love!
