Jamaica Recap {Part 1} Yea Mon’

Hey Guys! Are you ready to hear about my trip!? I can’t wait to relive it through these recap posts!!

Jamaica was a wonderful trip to a beautiful destination and I already can’t wait to go back to the beautiful beaches one day!

Our first day started bright dark and early… 4 am to be precise! It was rough getting up before the sun, but we were all busting at the seams to get to our destination!!

After a ride to the airport, an egg white delight from Micky D’s (not bad!!) and an iced coffee (DUH) we were off on a jet plane!!! I couldn’t sleep a wink on the ride. Luckily I had my laptop and Mike and I watched old episodes of Entourage on the flight!

Once we landed we had to ride in a bus to get to our resort in Ocho Rios from the airport in Montego Bay… Unfortunately, the lack of sleep caught up with me and I slept through the whole thing, I missed all the sights.. whoopsies!

But, finally we arrived. We stayed at the Sunset Jamaica Grande!

We had beautiful views from our room!

They bay and the mountains:

And for our first full day we beached it!! We had some cocktails too of course!

On the second night we got dressed up again and went to the Italian restaurant for dinner at the resort!

Day 3 was an adventure!

After a long morning at the beach we all decided to venture into town and walk to Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville Restaurant!

We enjoyed some nachos with everyone of course, because I don’t know if I can go an entire week without some semblance of them! While we were there a man came around and made all the ladies little birds out of palms…. how cool is my hummingbird (that he stuck in my head, HA!)

One thing I didn’t know about Jamaica was that there is a big stray cat community. It broke my heart how skinny and sickly they looked and the little fur balls made me miss my Spark-plug!

I saw this shirt and IMMEDIATELY thought of my friend Laura. She is hilarious. She always reminds me ya gotta jump at chances… YOLO!

Since this post is getting a little picture heavy…. I will part with my favorite picture of day 3…. or maybe the entire trip….

“Can’t you feel ’em circlin’ honey?
Can’t you feel ’em swimmin’ around?
You got fins to the left, fins to the right,
and you’re the only bait in town.
You got fins to the left, fins to the right,
and you’re the only girl in town.”
