Off to the Bahamas we go...'Harbour Island-Briland' in the eyes of its residents

I have to be honest, in my 15 years in the States I have yet to travel to the Caribbeans. So I can say that I stumbled upon Island in the Sun, a site dedicated to Eleuthera and Harbour Island (otherwise as Briland) in the Bahamas.
