The connection with Jamaica was an instant and intense one. To me Jamaica is 10,991 square kilometers full of culture, good food, jungle and stunning beaches. Often reduced to the big tourists hubs and its all-inclusives, Jamaica is so full of expereoinces for those who venture beyond. To me Jamaica was not the typical beauty on first sight, but a country which grew in beauty with every day spent there. Backpacking Jamaica was sometimes exhausting and almost always different than expected, but the vibe was contagious and made me fall madly in love with the island nation.
