Portugal

Loved staying at Atlantis, Bahamas in their autograph collection hotel

True. Nassau has little impacts; the Bahamas could use all the tourist money they can get! Pls consider if you still want to go there....

The Bahamas aren’t exactly ready for tourists right now. 😳

My parents always had a focus on savings and being financially independent growing up. Now that I (F) am married, they expect my SO (M) to pay for everything. In my recent vacation, they noticed my SO(M) using my card at restaurants, etc. They were concerned that he uses "my" money and doesn't use his. My SO and I split expenses and my card was just convenient with no exchange fees. I explained that to them. How do I stop this from mentally bothering me? (Details in comments)

Since I was a child I’ve never liked leftovers. I love my food fresh. When I cook, if I make too much, I eat and throw the rest out. When I go out and eat, I stuff myself because I know it “won’t taste good later.” I hate leftovers so much that I genuinely cannot meal prep, the taste of food that’s been in the fridge for a day or more is gross to me. I told a friend about this and she said that’s stupid snd strange… I’m just here to see if I really am stupid and strange or if anyone understands?
