I am a fun loving world traveler with a love for history and eagerness to learn about new cultures. So far I have traveled to Colombia, Mexico, Costa Rice, Brazil, USA, Canada, New Zealand and China and I have 25 more countries on my bucket list.
The five things I can't live without are:
A good book, chocolate, good coffee, fragrance free soap and a good night's rest.
As a guest I am pretty laid back not too critical of things as long as the linen is clean and the bathroom and kitchen are in good condition I am good to go.
As a host I love showing off my country and I have lots of off the beaten track recommendations since I have traveled all over Jamaica.
