What was meant to be a usual trip to check-in with some of my wife's family back in the country, turned out to be a quite fun and enlightening road trip!

In fact, I didn't make a decision until somewhere in Greenwood, that's the border of St. James and Trelawny, to make our 'expedition' a road trip adventure.

And that we did, starting with...

...our first stop was at Columbus Park! That's the area that it is purported that Christopher Columbus discovered and first landed in Jamaica - in 1494!


My daughter, Karena, and I took some quick photos and then we continued on to the small town center, Discovery Bay!

By the way, the view from Columbus park overlooking the sea to Porto Seco beach is astounding!


The rest stop at the gas station at Discovery Bay provided Aliana, my baby daughter, the sweet opportunity to get one of her favourite Jamaican food - patty, cheese patty - two of them!


We ran into a buzz of activity with several other persons apparently doing road trips too, some from as  far away as Spanish Town!

After the short break, we took to the hills! in the direction of Browns Town!

Oh yes, passing all sorts of event signs along the way! And before long, we were in Browns Town!!!


We navigated the congestion of the traffic, taking several photos and making commentary, and then headed southward in the direction of Alexandria!

We captured several landmarks along the way, including this one.. the
Aabuthnott Gallimore High School welcome sign!

And just in another 10 minutes or so...

jamaica_road_trip_rasta_man_peanut_porridge favourite ital peanut porridge - from this rastaman! Whenever I venture these parts I am sure to stop by him and enjoy a hot bowl.

Whatever you do, don't miss the video, it captured everything!

And then...


Just after entering the community of Clarksonville, we ran into a hot spot what ms Walker said, is a family 'get together' - although I noticed more food than 'family'.

Manish Water (aka Goat Belling Soup), curried goat, fried chicken and rice and peas were in all abundance - all cooking outdoors on aromatic Jamaican pimento wood!

Of course, we tested their culinary skills and approved the food :-)

We also took to opportunity to interview both Ms Walker and Tata, the chef, that was fun!

Remember to watch that in the video below.

After that chapter, we journeyed into and through Cave Valley square and passed the Baronhall coffee estate - but just before we passed, we stopped by, thanks belatedly to Mess-rs. Smith and Minott, and gave a short lesson - Jamaican coffee 101!


And there were a whole lot more, we captured...

  • the vendors who were cooking roast yam along the way,
  • the impatient drivers who overtook other cars unnecessarily,
  • the extensive array of yam farms along the road, to even...
  • my wife picking guava along the side of the road.

It was loads of fun!

Thanks to Boyzie, we were treated to some fresh jelly coconut upon arrival - yeah, that's the Jamaican spirit!


But these pictures are just a glimpse, be sure to get the full experience in my YouTube video below.
