Traveling means the world to me

From Jamaica to Australia and so many countries in between, New Zealand, Fiji, India, Bermuda, Tanzania, Morocco, Greece, Egypt, Israel, Canada, England, France, Palestine, Bali, Singapore, China, and Japan, to name a few. This Jamaican-born, brown-skinned girl has been to places I have only dreamed of as a child. Traveling has opened my eyes and heart to others in a way I could have never done, without being exposed to the world.  The friends I have met on my travels, all of whom I have kept in touch with. India is vast, and has so many sights to see; each city I visited has a character of its own.  Like GOA, Chennai, New Delhi, and Bangalore, all beautiful, unique, vibrant cities. Morocco, one of my favorite countries, a unique North African Country, I visited, fell in love with the beautiful landscape and rich culture and start two tour companies there.

And sweet, sweet Jamaica, land of my birth and the undisputed Jewel of the Caribbean, is Paradise here on earth! All these memories will last me for a lifetime.  Enjoy pictures below of some of the countries I have visited during my travels.
