Caribbean

  • It was the middle of March in the Grand Cayman and the sun blared down on me as I shuffled my feet towards the rest of the crowd. From the boat I could see giant gray blobs circling around us, and excitement began to fill my mind. This may sound crazy but I was nothing less than ecstatic to be on...

  • When you hear the name, "Jamaica," do you see white sandy beaches and beautiful blue waves washing up on the shore? Maybe a large resort with clean, white hotel rooms and the little towels folded like puppies sitting on the beds. You've at least got to be thinking about dreadlocks! Well, if this is...

  • Jamaica. I had heard the name of the small island in the Caribbean Ocean throughout my childhood. This was where my father had grown up on the beautiful grounds that are called the Round Hill Resort. Fueled by my dad’s stories of cliff diving and bonfires on the beach, I dreamed of a lush green...

  • The real magic happens when I close my eyes. I usually squeeze them really tight when I want to get a good feel of the ocean breeze in my face.

  • It was Steve’s birthday, and as far as anyone knows he was turning thirteen. There are no records of his date of birth, so the celebration was held on a random day. Steve lives at the Hands and Feet project (a home for orphaned and abandoned children) in Grand Goave, Haiti. On his special day Steve...

  • We come to gawk at the scenery with our heads strained back, admiring the sunset setting along what looks to be the end of the ocean. We run our diamond-laced fingers along the intricate wood carvings and the jewelry made from seashells, gossiping about the talent and the beauty lain before us. “...

  •             In 10 seconds, I went from relaxing at home with an open schedule to frantically packing to fly to the Caribbean island of Puerto Rico for an entire week of free vacation.  Out of nowhere, my friend and his family had called to ask if I wanted to go with them on their tropical getaway,...

  • Traveling is only one of the many beautiful things people love to do. It gives us the opportunity to meet and see things we otherwise would’t. It opens our mind and soul to new things and sets our imagination free. With so many places to see it is difficult to choose one place our heart truly...

  • Imagine a tropical paradise just a few steps away from your door. For me this is a reality and not just a dream. I live in one of the most magical places in the world, Aguadilla, Puerto Rico. While I call this place home, many others flock to this amazing place throughout the year as an escape...
