Reflections on Jamaica

I struggled with how to recap this vacation. It wasn't my first time down there, it was my 5th. Telling you about how gorgeous it is and how fun the people are just seemed… lame.

We stayed at the ClubHotel Riu Negril.

Riu resorts rock my world –I’ve stayed at them in Jamaica, Mexico and Dominican Republic– they are my absolute favorite and this one didn’t disappoint. If you REALLY want to know the nitty gritty details you can email me but that's all I'll say about the resort here!

And now I share with you my insightful reflections on our week in Negril ....

[1] No one can dance as good as a Jamaican. No one.

[2] If I die in a tropical location, I would like to be cremated and spread across the ocean
*There's a story that goes along with this one. I really did almost die.

[3] If you have an Italian accent you can probably talk me into doing just about anything

 Like 9am water aerobics. That's me in the white. Don't I look thrilled?! Those are the Italianos next to me in the blue shorts.
 Or playing soccer. I don't play soccer. As evidenced by the fact that after one blow to the head I was sitting on the sidelines playing watergirl instead.

Or wearing a toga. Err wait... I didn't give in to that one!

[4] People still can’t believe, Jamaica’s got a bobsled team
 (The Italiano's were obsessed. Throughout the course of the week, we saw luggage cart bobsleds, pool chair bobsleds, imaginary bobsleds all while singing that Cool Runnings tune)

[5] Boys like flowers too. even if you find them in the bathroom on the toilet paper dispenser.

[6] I have a problem. I make friends with everyone down there, and want to bring them all home.

[7] My mom rocks (duh), and I loved having a girls getaway with her! It was so funny how much everyone down there loved her, it was always "HI MOMMY!" and "Oh my god I love your mom!"

[8] Michael Jackson lives on

[9] Oh... and most importantly -- Hannah Montana doesn’t just party in the usa

Did I mention I now have a Jamaican husband? I can't muster up the energy to get into that tale now though, so maybe tomorrow!

Jamaica was a stop on our honeymoon cruise, but that's my only visit there - I'd love to spend a week there & see it all - especially after seeing all the fun to be had!

You're my kind of girl! I've barely traveled but would love to. Jamaica looks so fun, but there's no way I'd stand next to you in a bikini, you rocked it!
