Publication Update: Jamaica’s Best Beaches Book & Jamaica Feature in Virgin Atlantic’s VERA In-flight Magazine (November 2014)
I am thrilled to share this publication news with you all!
A couple of weeks ago, I was contacted by the editor-in-chief of Virgin Atlantic’s in-flight magazine VERA. While researching for a potential Jamaica feature, he stumbled on my Jamaica work–from my photographs to my recently released Jamaica’s Best Beaches ebook–and asked if he could feature it all (gasp).
The double-page feature–in my words and images–is now in the November issue of VERA and covers
An update: Sadly, the Split appears to be temporarily closed as of this week of November 3.

It’s a change coming to Belize’s most popular seafront bar and social hub. A place that serves as a weekend and at times weekday, getaway for Belizeans, expats and tourists. From solo travelers to families and tired business owners taking a break, many hop here for some sun, sea and merriment. I’ve written about this dreamy spot countless times, with articles or photographs published in various outlets, from Viator Travel to American Way Magazine.
If you’ve traveled to Caye Caulker before–one of the two most visited islands off the coast of Belize–then you know all about The Split.
