I Survived a Hurricane

Flashback Photo Friday: Taking Negril, Jamaica by Storm

Five years ago I was honeymooning in Jamaica. Pause. I see your minds turning. Yes I just went on a honeymoon to Alaska. Oh wait, I forgot to mention a small insignificant detail – there was this other time I got married but he turned out to be a *choice expletive entered here* and we divorced after only a year of marriage. Honestly though, it was for the best, I deserved better, he didn’t know how lucky he was, and all those things people tell you at the time but you mindlessly ignore. Luckily I met Dan (Yay!) and life has never been better.

Jamaica was the first place I travelled to which required a passport. The only place I have ever parasailed. The place where I survived Hurricane Charley, which turned out to be the fourth costliest hurricane in the United States history and took four lives in Jamaica alone. I stayed in Negril, Jamaica at my first all-inclusive resort (still on the fence about this whole idea). Oh and the only place where Rastafarians actively pursued me in an attempt to sell me drugs.

But all in all, the trip was incredible. The beaches were beautiful and the scenery stunning. Enjoy some of my favorite photos from Jamaica while I prepare for my next beach vacation on the shores of Maui and Kauai in two weeks!

I really like these pictures, so relaxing, even the cat looks too tired to make a move.
