I guess we’ll call my Jamaica trip not only a much needed vacation, but a nice birthday present as well. After months of appointments & med trials, I finally had a break & nervously tested traveling to different waters again. With 2012 being full of more beaches than I will ever remember all the names to, it was about time to discover & forget the names of some more.
When Karen came to me with an idea to travel to Jamaica, it was a pretty easy sell. I’d never been before, & I knew the coffee is delicious there. (Two points!) Yes, the rum is yummy too, but my meds inhibit me from even social sips most days.
Our days were spent in Negril, Montego Bay, & Ocho Rios. For only a few days of travel, they were packed with lots to do! Afterall, I’m not one to sit on a resort & rest. How else do you think I stay white in sunshine places?!
Things I noticed & missed:
- Salt water. Although, this water seemed saltier than others… Explanation, anyone?
- Living near palm trees
- Traveling with my bestie. The last time was when she visited me when I lived in Florida.
- Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee. I came back with $100 worth!
