Breadnut Valley Falls, Saint Elizabeth

Magic happens when local female travel bloggers get together, and Breadnut Valley happened to be the first destination of hopefully many future linkups. Breadnut Valley Falls are a series of mesmerizing cascades and turquoise pools set in Breadnut Valley, Maggotty, St. Elizabeth parish. For an off-the-beaten path waterfall, surprisingly little hiking was involved! With that … Continue reading Breadnut Valley Falls, Saint Elizabeth

Bucket List Jamaica 2019

I have a long ever-growing mental list of places to visit in Jamaica, ever since I came to the realization in 2016 that I barely know my island at all. In 2017 I was perhaps a tad bit too ambitious, setting out to see 17 places in '17 and only accomplishing 8 of them. That … Continue reading Bucket List Jamaica 2019

What One Woman Spent Travelling in 2018

Hey there! Today's the penultimate day of my 2018 roundup series, and I'm back with a crowd favourite: sharing my travel expenses for the year. I consider myself Day Trip Queen, even if that won't last forever as the type of adventures I take will evolve over time. However, day trips are the ideal trade-off … Continue reading What One Woman Spent Travelling in 2018

2018 Year In Review

2018 has been quite the year! I must say, it was a better year than 2017 where both my personal life and my blog are concerned. As today is the 2nd anniversary of my blog, let's review her first. Adventures from Elle's Year As I'd explained yesterday, Adventures from Elle is still just a hobby … Continue reading 2018 Year In Review

Q&A | Adventures from Elle

On my personal Instagram page this month, I asked my followers what would they like to know about me or my blog and that I'd answer during my five-day 2nd anniversary celebratory blog-a-thon. I usually write from a more aloof position since I try to be very objective and matter-of-fact in sharing my adventures, but … Continue reading Q&A | Adventures from Elle

Three-Day Itinerary ‘Round My Hometown Kingston, Jamaica

Jamaica gets millions of tourists annually and I'm just so fortunate to #livewhereyouvacation. However, that doesn't mean us locals take advantage of all the sights to see and things to do around our own island. Many Jamaicans (& visitors too) only associate the resort towns of Jamaica with adventure and enjoyment-- Ocho Rios, Montego Bay … Continue reading Three-Day Itinerary ‘Round My Hometown Kingston, Jamaica

Holywell, Saint Andrew

Located in the tropical mist forests of the Blue and John Crow Mountains National Park (BJCMNP), Holywell (pronounced Hollywell) is a cool escape from Kingston's heat. This 330-acres "park within a park" is blessed by the fragrance of fresh mountain air and pine trees, and at 900m (3,000 ft.) above sea level, the cool temperature … Continue reading Holywell, Saint Andrew

This is its fourth staging and for 2018, it welcomed 100 exhibitors, giving 100 local entrepreneurs invaluable exposure. … Continue reading A Jamaican Made Christmas Expo, Saint Andrew

Elle’s Favourite 10 Places in Jamaica 🇯🇲

I've received the question of which places are my favourites and had to recommend outings for friends quite a bit in the nearly two years of this blog's existence. I decided to take that recurring question seriously and answer it in a blog post. The only downside (quite miniscule I assure you 😅) of running … Continue reading Elle’s Favourite 10 Places in Jamaica 🇯🇲

Black River Safari, Saint Elizabeth

Black River is Jamaica's widest river and home to our largest and most feared reptile, the American crocodile. Our crocodiles are only found along the south coast, and since the Black River is located in one of our southwestern parishes, this is perhaps the best place to see them up close. Run by J. Charles … Continue reading Black River Safari, Saint Elizabeth

Frenchman’s Cove, Portland

Indisputably one of the best beaches in Jamaica, Frenchman's Cove in Port Antonio is an estuary which gives one the opportunity of swimming in fresh and salt water at the same beach. The beach receives its name from a fiery battle between the British and French near the Cove centuries ago after which the defeated … Continue reading Frenchman’s Cove, Portland

Jamaica’s Customer Service At Its Finest- A Satire

I had the pleasure of dining at Gloria's Seafood Restaurant for the umpteenth time on my birthday. Their food is a bit pricey but oh so delicious, my favourite place to have seafood in Jamaica before the second of September 2018. Their service is notoriously slow but the bright smiling waiters and waitresses usually remind … Continue reading Jamaica’s Customer Service At Its Finest- A Satire
