The past weekend I gather up some of my best friends and we took a trip into Portland, Jamaica of course. With no specific destination in mind; we travel along hoping to choose one of the many beautiful beaches the parish has to offer and relax for the day. Portland is just one of those scenenic and beautiful parish in Jamaica that you just can’t get enough off.
We ended up visiting three places ; we stopped at the Winnifred Beach, Sea Cliff Resort /Cliff Hanger and the famous Reach Falls. The day was perfect; the weather was great, the sea was calm and most of all, everyone enjoyed themselves .
A bit difficult to get because of the road due to the recent rains, but once we got there we forget about the bad road.
Cliff Hanger Resort
Quintessential, this is just one word to describe this spot. This is my second time here, the place is quiet, the staff is lovely and the service was great.
Breathtakingly beautiful, nature is it’s purest form.
Learning to appreciate and enjoy the beautiful places in your country is everything.
While driving home the other night from work, it came to me to write this post. Not because of any personal experience, but the fact that as a female driver, we have to always be prepared.
These are just some esentials to have in our vehicles just in case the need arises especially at night.
Flashlight, my dad gave me one when i got my first car. He was telling me how handy it will come in one day. It did when one night when i had some mechanical problems.
This doesnt have to be a high end kit, but one that has the necessary tools to fix you on the spot until your mechanic/ service team arrive.
A working mobile phone is a necessity;with this you can call friends or families incase of emergencies or just to update them if you are running late.
While it is not safe to walk around with large sum of money on your person, it is ok to have enough cash for emergencies. One may need money to pay for transportation to get to a safe location or home if the need arises.
What are some of the essentials you have in your vehicle?
Disclaimer: these are not the only “essential” but some of the basic to make life a bit easier when travelling.
This past weekend (Sunday ) one of my girlfriend celebrated her birthday and so we decided to go on a little trip. We drove into Portland (Jamaica) and we sure had a great time.
On our way, my friend whose car we commuted in did the first leg of the driving and i drove back home.
We stoppped at this restaurant, its fairly new and the scenery is just beautiful. Its built overlooking the sea, its cool, quiet and just heavenly.

All three of us
We then stopped in Boston for food to take with us. We got roasted breadfruit, jerk pork, cane juice and coconut water.
Jerk pork- these food pictures were after we had eaten
We went to san san beach
In all ,we had a great day filled with laughter and new experiences. If you do read this blog and want to visit somewhere in Jamaica, take a drive into Portland, its a beautiful parish and the beaches are amazingly beautiful.
Just want to share a few moments in the form of pictures with you.
With confidence we are strong and confident
When doubtful be stronger and more resilient.
I took these pictures at work; its Friday and we are allowed to be casual hence the casualness.
The weather has been good, its has been raining on and off which keeps the place cool all day long and i love that. The grass is greener and everything just look fresh and alive.
