a few days ago, i headed off to the island of jamaica to celebrate a wedding several years in the making. and, to put it succinctly: best vacation, wedding, and travel peeps of my life!
having never been to the island, i wasn’t sure what to expect and it did not disappoint. i am sad i opted out of bringing “the gear”, instead i went with the clear advantages of my iphone and a small point and shoot.
here’s what i saw….
day 1: travel and dinner day…
Favorite quote of the day: “I’ve slept everywhere today. Literally. I slept on the shuttle bus to the airport. I slept on the airplane. I slept on the shuttle bus to the hotel. I slept on the beach….(yawn!) I’m so tired.” Steph, getting into bed.
day 2: wedding day
Favorite moment of the day: The birth of the Glamah Twins. Requires an oversized fashion accessory such as a hat, sunglasses, or purse.
day 3: beach and boat day
Favorite moment of the day: Lunch time beach volleyball including the Giarusso men, aka Top Gun. (Eat your heart out Mav & Goose!)
day 4: beach and “mandatory manager’s cocktail party”to clarify: at no time while on vacation does waking up to this view get tiring.
favorite moments of the day:
This conversation in the water –
“Do you have your room key around your neck?” asked Steph.
“Yes.” I said.
“God, you’re so touristy right now.” said Steph & J in unison.
This question at the cocktail party, while listening to music on the radio, at the bar –
“Who is this? Celine Dion and Pacman?” asked J.
“And laser cats.” I said.
day 5: travel day
