I am the go-to girl for information on excursions for a few of my friends; so when my BFF Alicia called me for some suggestions of spots to go for her birthday I was super elated! Her original choices were Dolphin Cove, Mystic Mountain or Yaaman Adventure Park, however, based on the date we wanted to go none of them would have been feasible. So of course my adventure radar zoomed in on my fave parish other than Portland…St. Elizabeth. The first option was definitely YS Falls.

Dolphin Cove Ocho Rios has been on my Travel list (I need to post it one day) for awhile now so I jumped at the opportunity to visit when my friend Fran suggested it. I was apprehensive about the price because it is a very “touristy” activity & those are usually pretty expensive but when Fran told me that we would be getting the experience for $6300 JMD I was like SIGN ME UP!

When I was at University, my part time job took me to the parish of St. Elizabeth quite often & I somehow fell in love with the parish.

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.

This post is a real throwback or fling back as we Jamaicans would say. Today, I revisit my first trip to the Rose Hall Great House in Montego Bay, St. James.
When I was younger, there were numerous school trips to Rose Hall that I always missed because I just always fell ill.
I finally broke my Rose Hall virginity in 2012 on a Rotaract trip.

After editing the video footage from my trip to Nassau, my computer crashed & I lost the first video. In a stroke of faith or luck, I found the SD card with the footage except our visit to the aquarium but I still edited what I had & did my best to make this vlog.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed my experience.

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!

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.

Here are the pictures I snapped on the visit.

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.
