In 1976, I took a year off work to travel. My travels took me to many beautiful places, but none as stunning, friendly and inviting as Jamaica. My first trip to Jamaica was to Montego Bay, or Mo Bay as the locals call it. Warm and friendly people surrounded me. I was young and traveled alone, as I often do. Everyone wanted to take care of me, which made me feel special. I soon learned that it’s the way Jamaican people are with everyone. Before I’d even left, I was already planning my next trip. I couldn't wait to return.
Then I discovered Negril, a small beach resort that the locals call the Capital of Casual. With seven miles of white sandy beach, several miles of cliffs and the Caribbean Sea a color of blue I'd never seen before, Negril became a yearly trip. In the Sunday Chicago Tribune, I found a travel agent specializing in Jamaican travel. My accommodations were always boutique style, including a private residence on the beach. I'm adventurous, so I stayed in different places every year.
One year I met a gentleman, Malcolm, who was the bartender at my hotel. He mentioned that on his days off, he offered private tours. I checked his credentials at the front desk and decided to take him up on a cultural adventure. That's when I truly fell in love with Jamaica.
I saw lush foliage, stunning mountains, banana plantations, baby goats, cow and horse farms. I swam in local waterfalls and experienced authentic Jamaican cuisine. I wanted to live there for the rest of my life! Malcolm showed me the non-touristy part of Jamaica and introduced me to the locals and culture. It was an amazing adventure.
Fast forward to today, Malcolm has guided me safely, without incident, up the North Coast and down the South Coast many times. It’s always breathtaking! The people, along with Jamaica's beauty, rhythmic music and rich culture inspire me. Jamaica is a vibrant, kaleidoscope of colors, from street art to lush vegetation.
When I'm passionate about something, I go the extra mile to search for new information. I've done that with Jamaica. I want the next experience to be better than the last. I seek out unique adventures. When I speak of Jamaica, it flows organically from my knowledge, passion and experience. I want to share that with everyone.
