Dear Jamaica; a culturally transcending letter

03.03.2017
Dear Jamaica

By Melissa A. Salmon

Dear Jamaica,

Black, green and gold, may I inherit your greatness. Born in the quaint parish of St. Catherine, I spent a few years in the enriched seaside town of Old Harbour and its neighbouring environs before relocating to your capital, Kingston.

Your history is a rich one, a history which transcends the hardship of slavery. An independent nation since August 6, 1962—the motto highlights your diversity “Out of many, one people.” Our people cherish the local dialect ‘Patois or Creole’ (pronounced Patwah) which is not only greatly used and embraced by the natives of your land, but has also been taught to tourists when they visit.

Travelling as a backpacker has been the greatest learning experience of my life. For the past decade, I’ve honoured simplistic travel by journeying afar for long stints of time with nothing but the essentials on my back.

During those wayfaring years, my default choice was to ‘rough it’ – it’s certainly not the way most people choose to vacation – but for me, each trip was an adventure and each adventure offered up new learning opportunities.

packing for jamaica

By Andrea Delgado

I think most people can relate when I say that packing is a pain in my chakras!

First you have to figure what the weather will be like, how long you’re travelling for and what on earth you’ll do when you get there!

I used to be a serial over-packer and I know most of you reading know what I’m talking about. But then I read into the concept of minimalism and it changed how I packed for a vacation for ever!

Minimalist travel are the first steps to simplifying life.

Negril, Jamaica’s Gateway To Conscious Living

negril

By Andrea Delgado

The natural beauty of Negril is transfixing, there’s no denying it, but depending on your stance you might feel vexed by the resorts and associated tourism. For me, I looked beyond the all-inclusives and found a sleepy, fishing village that taught me what conscious living meant.

Head west out of Montego Bay and, when the air becomes thick with ganja smoke and horizontal pursuits start to take precedence over vertical ones, you’ll know you’ve entered the vacation-ville of Negril – Lonely Planet
