As many times as I’ve been to Jamaica and flown directly into the airport at Montego Bay (Sangster International or “MBJ” as most of us repeat-visitors call it), I haven’t spent as much time in that town as I have in other parts of Jamaica. So this weekend, I got a taste of life as a tourist in MoBay. For once, I wanted to relax, kick back and look at Jamaica from the tourist angle – and that’s exactly what I got. Endless white sand beaches, shades of infinite blue, all-inclusive luxury, aromatherapy massage in a cabana right over the sea… and even a one-day trip to Negril, “my hood” in Jamaica.
All of that was much sweeter though, because of (a) the “local” comfort and knowledge I already have, (b) good friends on the island, and (c) knowing my photo of Jamaica was just published in Lonely Planet to capture the winning best travel experience and my favorite island in the world.
This past weekend hop to Jamaica was… trip # 8.
