21 Photos That’ll Make You Want to Book a Flight to Jamaica Right Now

Jamaica celebrates her 56th Year of Independence from Britain today. While unfortunately I won’t be out enjoying the islandwide festivities, I’m still very much patriotic and thought it fitting to compile my favourite 21 photos of the island I’ve taken or published since the start of this blog. My compilation of Jamaica’s best spots is still a work in progress so of course, some very beautiful iconic spots may be missing from this blog post. Nonetheless, let’s enjoy Jamaica through my lens as I’ve seen it these past 19 months and if you’ve never been to Jamaica or are living elsewhere as an ex-pat or student, I’m sure you’re bound to want to book your ticket now! (Sorry, not sorry)

1. The rolling blue hills and lush greenery at the Lime Tree Coffee Farm in Blue Mountains, St. Andrew
