Farewell Jamaica

Ready or not, today is the day I travel home. The sun has set on my visit and in a few hours, I’ll bid farewell to my parents until we meet again. It’s bittersweet, it was great being home and I will miss them dearly, but I have another life and home to return to. I tarried and now luckily, I will not be traveling home alone as planned because even though I had lost three traveling companions, I have since gained three more. Today my words will be few and being Wednesday, it’s the perfect day for an almost wordless goodbye. Please enjoy a few of my favorite pictures from the last two weeks in beautiful Jamaica.

  1. Awww, so beautiful – I’m feeling it for you. Having to say so long to loved ones when I’m leaving Trinidad is never easy either. Such a bitter sweet feeling – then it’s back to the reality of work, work, work, hustle, hustle, hustle!!! 😒 – deep sigh

  2. Lovely pictures. It is better to get the view of a place from those who live there than from the tourist industry. You learn more true history and see the hidden beauty of the place. Thank you for sharing your trip.

    1. Thanks Paul, like any other country we do have our negative sides and areas in desperate need of lots of help. There’s plenty of that being highlighted everyday as it should be to create awareness and to get help. Unfortunately I don’t know too much about the economics and politics of the country so I stick to what I know. Should learn more, maybe🙂.

      1. Well one of the more positive views of Jamaica is that it can be a very chilled place, and your posts and photo’s certainly underline that view.
