Living in New York can become mildly depressing in winter, between the cold, the snow, and the darkness (the sun sets at 4PM!). It’s safe to say that I was more than excited to trade in my New York winter blues for tropical hues in Jamaica.
As a full-time traveler blogger for Get Lost With Jackie, I typically change hotels and locations every 2-3 nights, so I was ecstatic to be spending an entire week relaxing at an all-inclusive resort in Trelawny, Jamaica. I had a blast and was so happy to bring my Polaroid Snap instant camera around the area with me. I have always had an affinity for palm trees so I was on cloud nine in Jamaica being able to capture them with my Polaroid Snap!
The view from my resort balcony was as pretty as a (Polaroid Snap) picture.
The Caribbean blues and hues made for a perfect palm tree photo op.
Sunset skies, pastel clouds and flowing palms; can you think of anything else more perfect?
My cousin and I opted to take a bamboo raft tour down one of the rivers in Jamaica and it was such a fun, unique experience! We were guided by Jean, our raft captain.
I couldn’t have gotten off of the raft without snapping a shot of Jean, a moment I definitely want to remember for the rest of my life.
The Caribbean sun can be hot and dehydrating. The on-site coconut stand was the perfect place for a fun, hydrating coconut water – right out of a coconut! The coconut stand simply radiated that laid-back, Jamacian atmosphere. I had to stop and snap a picture to hold on to.
All in all, my time in Jamaica was everything I had hoped it would be – relaxing and fun! Although departing from any trip can be upsetting, I was fortunate enough to have my hand-held Polaroid memories to take home with me – keeping me in a tropical state of mind, even from wintery New York.
