I’ve been home since late Thursday night, and haven’t been on the computer much.. I feel like i left my brain on the beach all weekend. Don’t worry! I’m back and with a lot to blog about.
Our 6am flight went great all the way to Jamaica and as soon as we stepped out of the airport we grabbed a Red Stripe. Then we had an hour and a half bus ride to Ocho Rios. Along the way we spotted tons of goats, dogs, horses, cattle and colorful shops.
We spent a LOT of time on the beach, near the pool, and always in close proximity to the swim up bar. Let’s just say i’ve had my fix of daiquiri’s, pina colada’s & Red Stripe until our next vacation.
I only worked out 2x while on vacation. The gym was called “Cut” <—- I know right?? It was an open air gym. As in, outside. Yes. In the tropics and outside. I ran once and called it a week because it was that uncomfortable and heck, i was on vacation! I told myself It’s ok to take a vacation from running too, especially when it’s not fun. Here’s a pic of the gym from our view.
We definitely stayed active in other ways. We hiked through the rainforest to our zip lining excursion & hiked Dunn’s River Falls. Sad story, I didn’t get any pictures during these excursions. They wouldn’t allow cameras because
they want to sell you a $40 Photo Cd it’s too pretty. So enjoy the stock photo! haha.
