Leaving on the Big Jet – Jamaica Bound!


My last couple of Wordless Wednesday photos were rather depressing. It was shots of the snow and more snow that have consumed Alberta. 

Yet soon, my view will drastically change. Let’s call it 45° of separation.

It’s currently -15°C here and 30°C at my destination – Negril, Jamaica!

the big 105 big jet to jamaica


It’s be our first time visiting the country, and our first experience with Sandals Resorts. Actually, I was supposed to visit this country on 3 seperate occasions last year, though plans changed. So I’m looking forward to this new adventure that is finally taking place – I can’t wait!

I’ve heard such fantastic things about Sandals Negril and being photo-worthy is just one aspect. So you know I’ll be taking some gorgeous photos while there.

I’ll also share some teasers during my trip on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Have you been to Jamaica before?




  1. I have not been to Jamaca, and your picture is beautiful. It makes me just a wee bit green with envy!

  2. I am pretty sure I went to Sandals. I know I have heard of it. I haven’t been in 25 years. I remember a tourist destination of a waterfall that we could climb, which was pretty awesome.

    1. You are talking about Dunn’s River Falls in Ocho Rios, Jamaica. I have also climbed up them and they are beautiful.

  3. Oh I am sooo jealous I would love to visit Jamaica I will be looking forward to your photos, that photo is gorgeous 😉

    Have a suntastic week ahead 😉

  4. I have never been to Jamaica and I am so totally jealous…lol!! Hope you have a wonderful time Tammi and I look forward to hearing all about it and seeing your pics!

  5. I’ve never been to Jamaica. I went to Cancun, Mexico a couple winters ago. There’s nothing like leaving the cold behind for a hot, tropical vacation! Have fun!

    1. Just got the van stuck in the snow yet again … oh yes, bring on the tropics! Mama’s out of here!!!

  6. I’ve never been to Jamaica before, but have a feeling I’m going to want to visit when you start sharing photos 😉

  7. I have never been to Jamaica. Can you take me with you? 😉 Sounds like a well deserved break after the weather you have been having. Enjoy. Looking forward to your review and pictures.

  8. Looks gorgeous! Enjoy the fresh ari warm water and sunshine, but be careful not to get sunburn in all that fantastic glory, you won’t want your tan to just peel away! Happy WW

  9. My wife and I vacationed in Jamaica last December for a week. We went to Montego Bay and had an awesome time. It really is a beautiful country and the people are wonderful. Have a great time!!

  10. Oh, you poor thing…I will think of you as I bask in the lovely freezing dry weather here. 😉 I hope you have a great time!!

  12. No I havent but I would love to go to a sandals beach resort. looks lovely enjoy the weather wear your sunscreen

  13. I’ve never been to any of the islands in that part of the world! I’ve been to Bermuda and am moving to Hawaii in two weeks, but I’d love to go to the Caribbean sometime. Have fun!!

  14. Yes I have been to Jamaica and I loved it. I would love to go back to Montego Bay and stay at the Riu if possible. I stayed in Runaway Bay last visit!!!

  15. I hope you have a wonderful vacation! I’ve never been myself, but the hubs and I plan to start taking kidless vacations next year and Jamaica sounds like a great start!

  16. I’ve been to Jamaica a few times but not to the Negril area. Jamaica is wonderful, enjoy the sunshine and have a wonderful time.

  17. We were in Jamaica at Christmas time just last year, totally enjoyed ourselves. It is such a beautiful country and the people are so friendly. You will have an awesome time!!

  18. WOW! Jealous! I’ve never been but I’d love to go one day. Hope you guys have a blast! 🙂

  19. I have never been but would like to visit one day. Hope you have an amazing vacation!

  20. We’ve never been to Jamaica before. Spent most of yesterday blowing, shoveling and sweeping snow off our 350 linear ft. of sidewalk. Hmmmm….somehow Jamaica does sound like more fun!! 😉

  21. We’re planning a trip to Jamaica in 2015 with friends of ours. Thinking at staying at one of the Couples resorts though.

  22. That looks so inviting! It is 4 degrees here with the wind chill factor, and I’m bundled up. I’ve never been to Jamaica, it sounds like a good time!

  23. No, I’ve never been to Jamaica but have only heard nice things about it. I think it’s always good to get out for a spell to a nice warm country to break up the monotony of our black and white view of Alberta. I remember one year driving down to Florida just before Christmas. I realised on the way something was different but couldn’t really discover what. Then it dawned on me, there was colour around us and the grass was green!

  24. I have never been to Jamaica. My sister went a few years ago and loved it! I hope that you and your family have a splendid time…you deserve it!

  25. Sandals Negril is the best all-inclusive vacation ever!! This is where our daughter and son-in-laaw were married in February 2011. We stayed at Sandals Negril! The resort and staff are the friendliest and most helpful. Enjoy! 🙂

  26. somehow your white beach looks more inviting than our white banks on our lawn (snow)!! have fun!!

  27. It always feel so good to step off o the plane after leaving cold Canada and into the nice hot humid air! Glad you had a great time 🙂
