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 toSpanish Town because the next bus to Ocho Rioswouldn’t arrive until 1 PM…this was at 10:30 AM.
This is one trip I am more than grateful I had the opportunity to go on. It literally happened in less than a month and a half.
I remember a few months ago I was watching some of my favourite Beauty YouTubers vlog their experience at The Atlantis& thinking how cool it would be to go there. Who knew that a few months later I would be sitting here blogging about my week on Paradise Island.

The morning of my trip I had to wake up at 5AM because my ride to the airport had school at 8AM. Luckily for me my mom sat with me in the airport until I was ready to go to the departure lounge.
It felt like my flight took forever to board! Once I got on the plane, however, I was more than ready to start my adventure.
The journey to Nassau was smooth & I have to give thanks to Caribbean Airlines for their exceptional service. The only issue I had with my flight was that one particular stewardess was not very friendly especially to the lady sitting beside me. I don’t know if she was having a bad morning or what.
The Lynden Pindling Airport was massive! I felt like I was walking FOREVER to the Immigration desk.
In honour of International Women’s Day, I decided to join the YouTube Global #DearMe Initiative.
A letter to young Shanny
I know you are at a stage where you are really confused and trying to find yourself. You will choose the unconventional path because you are too scared to disappoint yourself & your family…this decision will lead to you discovering who you really are.
