Negril, Jamaica 2017
The past few months have felt like a world wind. It's been a blessing!!! But with that blessing came EXHAUSTION!! I was BURNT OUT!!! Literally! My body had crashed on me a few times... and mentally I was DRAINED. My creativity had completely dried up and all I wanted to do was SLEEP! So this trip couldn't have come at a better time!!!
This trip to Jamaica.... I decided to do the "tourist thing." These pics (taken with an iphone) where taken with that feel in mind. I wanted to capture the scenery as a tourist. And the images came out better than I could have imagined.
One of the highlights for me was although I CAN NOT SWIM... I took a chance and went snorkeling for the first time. How you ask... with a great life jacket. LOL!!! The captain assured me I would stay afloat and once I got in the water... I didn't want to come out. The view of sea life was AMAZING!!!! So much so it has inspired me to learn how to swim just so I can add snorkeling to list of hobbies.
One thing this trip has taught me... EVERYONE NEEDS A VACATION!!! And I mean EVERYONE! Plan it out right and you can take a trip for pretty CHEAP!!! And you don't have to leave the country. Check Groupon to see what deals they offer. Start saving... $50/100 every two weeks for 6 months... then pay for your trip two months out. The further in advance you buy your tickets and pay for your hotel... the cheaper it is. YOU DESERVE IT!!! Everyone needs time to unplug, relax and unwind for the pressures of life. Treat yourself!!! It makes life worth living!!!
