  • It was somewhere around ninety-eight degrees Fahrenheit when we arrived in Jamaica, Queens, but the beads of sweat on our foreheads seemed to indicate that it was much warmer.

  • With each turn of the wheel, my anticipation grew. Standing on a rickety, hand-cranked ferry, which was nothing more than a rotting plank of wood with a makeshift roof powered by a rudimentary wheel and cable system, I contemplated what lay ahead. This trip to Belize was my first to Central America...

  •   Travelling is something I dream of doing, but haven’t done a lot. Living in Florida though gives me close access to some great beaches and the world’s best theme parks. Hello, Orlando!
