Hey guys, remember me? Suze? I’m back! (Finally!) A big thanks to all my guest bloggers for the past week. Somehow they helped me get some must needed R&R, and also took care of my blog, even when I was trapped in an airport! (more on that later).
I have some awesome photos to share with you guys, and some interesting stories (even been offered pot, coke and a necklace, in that order? No? Just me?), so I’ll be recapping my trip and posting outfit photos for the next few days, if that’s alright with you guys.
We flew out Thursday, to Montego Bay, but were staying at a resort in Ocho Rios, about two hours away from the airport. So, my sister, her boyfriend, Joe, my mom, my brother’s mom and I piled into a bus with a few other people and headed out. Like a typical blogger, I had my camera out and managed to snag some awesome photos while the bus was moving!
It was interesting to see how the people lived and drove! Some houses we drove past were unfinished, just bricks and a roof, and we were told that’s normal. Apparently, Jamaicans don’t take out huge mortgages on their houses like we do here in the states. They build them to the point they can live in them (walls, ceiling, roof, etc.) and move in, continuing to build as they earn the money. I guess since they only have to deal with rain it’s way easier to do that there, because we have to deal with rain and snow here.
I’ve never been south of Florida before, so this was my first venture into such a warm climate. I came prepared with vats of SPF 100+ and a big floppy hat, but STILL got sunburned! Joe and I also found cats living on our resort that looked identical to our cats back home, and the wedding was beautiful! I’ll recap all those days over the next few, but first I wanted to share some photos of the landscape.
