#DryLandTouristChronicles : The vibes can’t Dunn!

When my friend Francine told me that she wanted to climb Dunn’s River Falls for her birthday I could not resist this unique way of celebrating her birthday. The week leading up to it we were a bit worried because our friend who was driving wouldn’t be able  to make the trip but we decided to hop a bus & turn the trip into a full on adventure.

I think adventure should be my legal middle name lol.

We headed downtown to the bus park on a bustling Saturday morning to catch a bus to Ocho Rios. We were unpleasantly surprised to find only one bus with only smaller “middle” seats available & we were not about to endure that drama. One of the vendors in the bus park told us our best bet was to take a bus to Spanish Town because the next bus to Ocho Rios wouldn’t arrive until 1 PM…this was at 10:30 AM.

#DryLandTouristChronicles : My Weekend At Sandals Ochi Beach Resort Part 1


I was blessed with the opportunity to enjoy a free weekend at any Sandals resort in Jamaica thanks to my coworker. He won the weekend in a raffle & gave me the trip as a 30th Birthday gift.

I was lucky enough to be able to get the weekend at my first choice resort which was Sandals Ochi Beach Resort in Ocho Rios, St. Ann. I chose that resort because I remember seeing articles in the local media about its renovation & I was really impressed by the new look.
