Why do I love it so much?!

When I tell people that I just got back from my 4th trip to Jamaica the most common response is "Wow... why do you keep going back?!"
Typically the good 'ol "I just love it" will suffice and they go on about their business, but this past trip I got to thinking about what exactly it is that keeps me making that trip back.

The most obvious is the island itself. It's absolutely gorgeous!


But then again, I also love the fact that I can shop whilst in the ocean. Really? Can you combine two more perfect things?!

I also absolutely adore their language, Patois (pah-twa). It makes me giggle how quickly they talk, and how at first it doesn't even sound like English but after a while you can start to understand words and phrases.


And of course I can't forget about the people! A majority of the Jamaican's I've had the pleasure of meeting are so sweet and just in general, happy people! These two fellas practically begged us to take their picture while we were in town one dayI have to share the (we're not even looking at the right camera) picture with our favorite bartender, O'Neil!
That's just a few reasons why I love that lil island country! And the jerk chicken. But I could write a whole post confessing my love for jerk chicken, and I'll spare you that hah!

I'll (finally!) be sharing more from our trip this week!
