And the Winner is…..

I’m a sucker for a travel contest, especially when the prize is a trip to Jamaica or another locale on my dream destination list. So you can imagine how excited I was once notified that I was the winner of a trip for 2 to the 2012 Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival courtesy of Zappos Couture and the Jamaica Tourist Board!

I was already in Jamaica,  but still had the opportunity to have my good friend, Tequila (yes, that’s her real name), join me for the fun. It was Tequila’s first trip to Jamaica and I was happy to have her experience a tiny piece of this beautiful island. Though most of it was spent on the resort or at the Greenfield Stadium for the festival, she was able to learn a little more about the culture, gained a new found respect for reggae music and is already planning to come back!
