I have to admit it. While everyone was loving wintertime and everyone was posting cute teacup and cosy blanket photos, I was over it right after Christmas -when all the excitement was over and all the presents were opened.
Finally the peaks of spring are showing in the nature and I’m already fantasizing about sandy beaches and long carefree nights. Softly sunburned skin, short dresses,no bra, warm salty breeze from the ocean, nice company and a beverage in your hand. That feeling when you could tell that “something is in the air”. Let me tell you, I’m so ready for a long, hot, sticky, sweaty summer!
While dreaming of it I tought I’ll post some pictures from my DREAM Jamaican trip.
I was lucky enough that I worked for an amazing small company with even more amazing ceo. He rewarded us for a hard work with a trip to Jamaica. Yes, no joke. And let me tell you, it was something i’ll never tought i’ll be able to afford at such a young age with almost empty bank account – obviously. But you know what, these were the firs glimpses of the life i wanted and these were the times i realised if i work hard for it and show dedication, life – or the universe will send you the right people that will help you pursue your goals.
And i cannot be more grateful for this experience, even if i realised later in life, this is not the career path for me.
We visited Jamaica in december so it was the most perfect getaway. We flew from cold and snowy Europe to fairly hot and sunny Jamaica. Even during wintertime there was 29 degrees C. Main cultural difference were definitely people. I cannot forget cute and positive staff in our resort. For example one day i woke up at 5 in the morning and took a stroll to the beach to enjoy peaceful morning and sit on the sand looking easy waves. While i was walking from our bungalow trough our mini tropical garden i heard a man singing to himself. He was clearly entertained and pleased with himself. I know i was thinking to myself i’,m to shy to sing out loud randomly in the public. and what if i would woke someone up a t 5 am, they would be angry with me. But you know what. No one cared, that is true Jamaican spirit. No problem, be yourself, we embrace that. And the nice man said good morning to me, trew out there few compliments and went on to work. Easy breezy.
Jamaica is definitely a place to experience and one you do, it’s a place you look forward to come back. It’s hard to put in words the energy that’s in the air out there. But I would say full of sunshine and positivity. The plants are moisty and green, the fruit tastes like from other dimension, the people look you straight in the eyes, the beaches are sandy and white, the ocean is turquoise, little kids are the cutest little humans with braids all over their head, and their Pina Colada from all fresh ingredients… Heaven on earth. This was just a brief memorie of my Jamaican adventure and in time I’ll share with you more.
