Happy New Year from Jamaica!

Happy New Year from Jamaica — I pray you all enjoyed the holidays and now ushering in a prosperous and fulfilling new year.

Last year in Rio was epic! This year, however, I kept it semi low key and hung out with a good friend at Kingston Harbor for the festivities and fireworks before calling it a night.

Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.

~Henry David Thoreau

I’m not one for new year’s resolutions per se, but I am regularly thinking about new goals and making new life commitments. This past year was full of  a lot of new experiences, people, places and opportunity. I am tremendously grateful for all that has transpired and looking forward to epitomizing the above quote in 2012 and beyond.


To those who read and subscribe to this blog, check me out on Facebook, follow me in Twitter and have reached out via e-mail with your questions and kind words, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! I encourage you all to start now to make 2012 better! Live life to the fullest and make your travel dreams and reality. Bless.
