Welcome to our weekly hop! This week, I asked the question:
What is your favorite vacation spot and why?
Without a doubt, I have to say Jamaica. It’s the tropics. I love the sun and the sand and when it rains, it’s just enough to cool off the day. I love the accent. Listening to the locals’ speak is lyrical. Just their voices remind me I’m far from home and in a place where I can relax.
But, most of all…it’s the people themselves. They are so kind and welcoming and it seems they are always smiling. Everything is ‘irie” which means ‘all right’ or ‘no problem’. The local attitude reminds me to take life easier, appreciate simple things, like seashells and wood carvings and the warmth that is everywhere. Or the thrill of climbing a waterfall or just basking in the sunshine.
When life gets complicated or difficult, which is does, I can close my eyes and picture myself back there. And life gets better.
Let’s hop over and check out the wonderful Brenda Margriet’s favorite spot.
