Jamaica Recap

Hello Friends!! I am back and it feels great, although I can not lie, it would feel better in Jamaica!! My weekend was pretty boring as we were trying to get somewhat organized and unpacked on the weekend, so I figure today I would go over just what went down on our vacation, or shall I say what did not go down!!

We woke up late on Thursday, leaving me no time to curl my hair before heading to Toronto. When we arrived at the airport we checked in, went through security and then had some breakfast at a restaurant in the airport - surprisingly not bad!

Our flight down was problem free and into the Jamaica airport we were. I don't know if any of you have been to Jamaica - we flew into Montego Bay, and it was super creepy to be landing when all I could see out my window was the ocean. It seriously looked like we were landing in the ocean. Clearly we didn't...

We were staying in Ocho Rios which is about 1 hour and 45 minutes away. The bus ride there was crazy, not to mention they drive on the wrong side of the road!

Our hotel was truly amazing and in all honesty we did not even leave the resort once!! There was plenty of opportunity, but we just decided to literally lay around all week!! The pool was freezing! The only time I went in it was when I did Aquasize. Love water aerobics! Otherwise we swam in the ocean. M went scuba diving, I had no desire and learned that was good thing because of my ears I probably wouldn't have been able to anyways.

I had my first ever massage!! Amazing!! We did a couples full body hot stone massage and it was awesome!! Why the heck have I not ever had one done, although the concept still creeps me out.

Our whole vacation was super relaxing!! We participated in the resort activities, won a gold pendant with palm trees and obviously had our pics taken. That pretty much sums up our vacation.

There are a few other things that I will touch on in another post, but for now I will share 3 more pics! I haven't had much time to deal with any pictures yet, so I will do a picture post at another time.


 
 
One thing that was pretty amazing despite our travels home was seeing all my fur babies!!! Oh how much I missed them and based on our arrival home I think they missed us too!! Melts my heart to feel soo much love from pets!!

Looks like it was beautiful there. Sometimes vacations are more about laying around and relaxing then doing tons of things.
