Since starting with the travel agency (you can read about that here), I feel like time flies by. It is definitely taking me a while to get the hang of going from home mode to work mode. Even though I'm only working part-time, I still spend several hours a week at home working and researching and I've got to say that I am still loving it.
So last week I checked my work email from home and got an exciting offer. I was literally jumping up and down and yelling. Jeanne, the owner of 5 Star Travel and Cruises, offered me a fam (familiarization) trip to Jamaica!
What does this mean? This means that this Mommy is going to Jamaica . . . on May 30! How incredibly awesome is that?!?!
I have always wanted to go to Jamaica. I wanted our honeymoon trip in October to be to Jamaica but at the time there were no charter flights from St. Louis and I didn't want to spend one whole day on both ends of the trip traveling and it was cheaper to go to Mexico. Don't get me wrong, I loved the Excellence Riviera Cancun (you can read my review on Trip Advisor HERE)and would recommend it to anyone and would definitely go back but Jamaica has always been a place that I wanted to visit.
I leave St. Louis on May 30 and return on June 2. During this time I will be visiting the following:
RIU Montego Bay
Iberostar Rose Hall Beach
Secrets Montego Bay
Dolphin Cove Lucea

RIU Palace Tropical Bay
How could I not be excited getting to visit all of these fantastic places?
Three down sides to this trip, though:
#1 I'm going by myself. I would have loved for Scott to be able to go with me on this trip but this one is just for agents.
#2 I will be away from my babies from Wed-Sat
#3 That only gives me about 3 weeks to be bathing suit ready!
