An Update from Jamaica

I’m still alive….

It’s been a while since I’ve made a blog post and that’s been somewhat deliberate. As I rapidly approach the 3 month mark of my time in Jamaica, the more I’ve been focused on enjoying every single moment I have left. I do plan to return again for an extended stay this year, but tomorrow is not promised and I’m going to take advantage of what is in front of me, right now, in this moment.

After the Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival, I came back to Kingston and have been keeping busy in town and around the island. Here are a few snapshots of what I’ve been up to…

One of my good friends of almost 12 years and one of Absolute Travel Addict’s blog readers came into town and I got a chance to show them around!

Most importantly, I’m living life and enjoying the simplest things like an ice cold jelly from the roadside, random conversations with strangers, and constant flow of great music. LIFE IS GOOD!
