#DryLandTouristChronicles: #TBT…Lost Cayman Islands Vlog

Thinking about the Cayman Islands brings back fond memories because my trip there changed my life. Prior to the trip, travelling was always a distant dream for me; the trip made it a reality & not just a wish or a newspaper clipping in a vision box.

I wasn’t the best at vlogging (I still have a far way to go) but I had so much fun doing it.

I actually came across a forgotten SD card while cleaning which to my surprise had my “lost” Cayman Islands vlog footage.  I got right on top of things & edited the footage.

To this day, my trip to Grand Cayman is still one of my best trips. I hope you enjoy the footage as much as I did the trip.

#DryLandTouristChronicles: Reach Falls, Portland

Portland is known for its natural & tranquil beauty. I’ve been going to Portland ever since I was a child to visit my family & all those years I hated it! It wasn’t until I became an adult that I began to appreciate how lucky I was to have roots in this tranquil haven.

Now that I am older & my great grandmother has passed unfortunately the trips are less. When my bestie decided that she wanted to go to Reach Falls for her birthday celebration at the end of July, I was more than elated!

#DryLandTouristChronicles: Jamaica Conference Centre..A Work of Art

Today I decided to try something a little different with my Dry Land Tourist Chronicles post.

Jamaica, much like her people, is very diverse.There is more to her than sand, sun, sea, reggae & weed. She has a rich history that I hope to do justice & present to you my readers.

I have been to the Jamaica Conference Centre many a times but I never really looked at it & saw the work of art it truly is.

A few months ago I had a meeting there that started a little late, so I passed the time by exploring the Jamaica Conference Centre many

A Little History….

Located on the picturesque Kingston Waterfront, the Jamaica Conference Centre was built in 1982 as the venue for the preparatory meetings of the International Seabed Authority, an arm of the United Nations. The Centre was built to United Nations specifications and its facilities and services rival the best.

It was constructed by the UDC in the record time of 12 months in time to host the International Seabed Authority beginning in 1983, in the process, winning the Governor General’s Award.

The Complex houses the Centre, Secretariat Building and a 450 bay multi-storey parking garage.

#DryLandTouristChronicles #Throwback: The Old Capital

Today’s #DryLandTouristChronicles post is actually throwback. I found these picture on my laptop by chance while trying to locate some others. About  2 years ago, I believe, my former service club, the Rotaract Club of New Kingston, held a “Feeding of the Homeless” project in the Old Capital, Spanish Town.
I had always driven through the  old square on numerous journeys to other parts of the island but I had never had the chance to stop & admire the beauty of Spanish Town.
