Greetings from sunny Ocho Rios!
You might remember in my last blog post that I was lounging around in Port Antonio for a few weeks longer (mostly reading Game of Thrones, watching Netflix and playing League of Legends on the beach). Well, the time has come to move on and explore some more of this Caribbean paradise. Onwards to Ocho Rios it was!
If you’ve ever been to Jamaica yourself then the chances are you’ve visited Ocho Rios. There’s tourists EVERYWHERE here and it’s quite the change of pace from Port Antonio. Apparently this place is super popular for cruise ships, which explains the massive influxes of people each morning. It does give it a nice vibe though – something a bit more upbeat and a bit more to do. I guess it’s kind of between Kingston and Port Antonio.
You probably know by now that I love my food. Well, I found this totally amazing place up here called Miss T’s Kitchen. I’ve been here for 4 days now and eaten here 3 times already, the food is just that good. I have a feeling it’s going to become a second home for me (not that I mind that!). The place has a real rustic feel inside, a proper traditional Jamaican restaurant. Here’s a picture for you:
I’m not sure how long I’m going to be here, but I think it’ll probably be a little longer than I was in Port Antonio since there’s a lot more to do and see (I guess that means less Netflix and LoL for me now though). I think I’ll check out the botanical gardens sometime this week and maybe venture down to the awesome sounding James Bond beach, which is near where James Bond was first created by Ian Fleming. I’ve included a picture I found below, I’ll get some better ones when I visit (there’s a camera shop here so I can finally get a new camera!).

I’m off to Miss T’s Kitchen again for some delicious dinner (I think I’ll be putting on a lot of weight here) so I’ll catch you all later.
