This was my first trip out of the country. My family and I went to Jamaica for a family vacation when I was about 4 years old. I remember playing on the beach at the resort with my brother and building sand castles. The second time I went was through a cruise where we spent the day on the beach. I was 10 years old when visiting for a second time and thought a great idea would be getting my hair braided in little corn rows and beads. I was definitely wrong. All I remember was one woman starting off with my hair and realizing I had a lot so two more women decided to help braid my hair. I have a high pay tolerance but that was one of the most painful experiences of my life
I visited the Cayman Islands along with my second trip to Jamaica. With Carnival cruise, we stayed for a day at Cayman Island. Here we were able to witness Hell, which is a huge rock formation. I thought the formation was extremely cool because it legit looked like something scary had walked through it. My parents also bought this delicious rum cake from a local store and let me try a little piece. I truly believe my love of rum came from this trip.
