Hi there! I’m Rochelle, an undergraduate medical student from Kingston, Jamaica.
I’d love to travel to other countries and learn about new places and cultures firsthand, but it’s not possible for me right now. In the mean time, I’m doing the next great thing: exploring my homeland, Jamaica. Dubbed the land of wood and water, I want to see all the waterfalls, rivers, lagoons, hidden mountain trails and endemic birds and flowers she has to offer. I like to travel slowly, soaking up all the sights, sounds and smells of new places until they are imprinted in my memory. The details I’ll forget are archived in this blog, in photos, ticket stubs, souvenirs and in the minds of the people with whom I experienced these adventures. I also like off the beaten path, choosing my own fun and letting my senses and feet lead the tour in unfamiliar places.
Before I trod new lands, I aim to leave my footprint (not carbon of course 🙂 ) in all corners of Jamaica, and share my budget travel chronicles with you. I take pleasure in showing the cheaper way to sightsee. Money should never be an obstacle to travelling and immersing oneself in a new experience. If reading my adventures makes planning one trip easier, one dollar saved or another soul happy, sharing my travel journal online will have achieved its target.
Inadvertently you may see the inner workings of my mind and life on here because I’m too lazy to operate more than one blog. I hope you’ll forgive me if you’re only here for the travel posts. I look forward to seeing more of you!
