Vacation Review!

Right about now I am wishing my husband and I were back in Jamaica. Well, really anywhere that has an ocean or a pool to be honest.

We had an amazing time doing absolutely nothing. I have to say that I couldn't really tell you anything about Jamaica. The culture I experienced was from the view of a bus window on the hour trip from the airport to the hotel. I know that's sad, but we just wanted to relax and that's exactly what we did. We ate well, slept a lot, and read several books.

We stayed at Sandal's Ocho's Rios. I have to admit that it wasn't nearly as nice as the La Toc in St. Lucia although that may have to do with the fact that it was 3 times less on the price. It suited our needs though - beautiful pools, nice beach area, plenty of easily accessible bars to get my new found favorite Jamaican Smile (Miami Vice with Baileys instead of Rum), and wonderful food.

Oh, and just in case you guys were curious...we did make it on the plane this time! However, we did see several sad souls that had been hit with the overbooking deal that happened to us on our honeymoon. One girl was having a full blown temper tantrum. Tears aren't going to get you anywhere with Delta!

We ended our vacay with a trip to Atlanta for a friend's wedding. It was beautiful. I got to see a lot of people I hadn't seen in a long time and spent time with a good friend that has moved way too far away. Good times were had by all!


  1. I feel ya, I wish I was back on a beach too! Okay, I love when you leave for vacation and come back with a new favorite drink!!!

  2. I'm happy that you were able to have such a lovely and relaxing trip!

  3. Hey, sometimes you don't want to get all cultural; sometimes you just wanna get away and relax! I hope you guys wore sunscreen!

  4. Looks beautiful! I can totally get on board with the bus window type holiday. Sometimes one wants to do cultural immersion, othertimes just plain ol' sun tourism.


Comments make my day! Go ahead...get to typing. I want to hear from you.
