Hi everyone! We recently took a short vacation to Montego Bay, Jamaica for my birthday. Yay! We had a great time and met some really cool people. This was our first time, so we figured it’d be a good idea to book an all-inclusive resort. The resort we booked was smaller than your average resort (i.e. Sandals), but that’s what we wanted. It was quaint and full of character and there were a lot of activities to choose from. The weather was perfect and the water was so clear that I could see the little fish swimming around my toes!
The day we arrived was my actual birthday (July 5th in case you want to send me a late gift hehe), which just so happened to be the same day the USWNT won the FIFA Women’s World Cup! It was a pretty great day! We stayed a few more nights, ate a bunch, had a few Red Stripes, took long naps, and laid on the beach. I mean, isn’t that what you’re supposed to do on vacation?
Our resort had a nightly show, where we enjoyed live music, dancing, and contests. It was really entertaining. The night ended rather early compared to nights in Florida, but it was all good because we were pretty exhausted from the sunshine anyway. I also enjoyed a little beach yoga before the storm arrived and washed us off the beach :)
Besides all of the lounging and indulging, we enjoyed the company of a lovely couple from Memphis and a gentleman from Canada. We had a lot in common with them and it made our stay that much more enjoyable. We’ve been lucky enough to meet a lot of people during our trips and it’s nice to stay in touch with them. It’s great to share stories and travel tips and suggestions for future destinations. We hope to visit them one day!
Jamaica was a fun trip and I’m grateful to have been able to share it with my sweet man. I hope everyone is enjoying their summer and all of the fun that it entails! Have a great day!
