From New York to Montego Bay!
Montego Bay Travel Blog› entry 1 of 4 › view all entries
As per my tradition before leaving for a vacation, I always go out the night before and indulge for some much needed ETOH.
And so, the night before, I met up with my friend, Finelle, who was going with me on this trip along with 3 of our other friends. Since she was sleeping over at my place so we can leave together for the airport, we decided to have dinner together. Her boyfriend, Victor, joined us after he got off work, and my friend, Matt (matrilla) arrived in NY just that afternoon, joined us as well. We opted to have Mexican food since there is a good Mexican restaurant close to my apartment, only a block and a half away. We all had their famous margaritas which were quite strong that were just awesome and I had my usual salmon. Or was it tuna, this time? After dinner, Victor left since he had work early the next day, so Finelle, Matt and I went to one of my favorite bar/lounges in my neighborhood- Stir.
We chatted a bit and I made Finelle and Matt have more drinks. Since I have a bottle of vodka - Grey Goose, my favorite - always in stock inside the freezer, and some cranberry and orange juice, they had a choice of vodak-cran or a screwdriver.
I slept on the 3 hour flight to Miami where we had another 3 hour layover before our connecting flight to Montego Bay. Finelle brought a game with her - something similar to pictionary - which we played, quite loudly I might add, while we waited. Finally, our flight was called, as we began boarding. It was an hour and a half flight to Montego Bay and when we landed, the sun was already setting.
Our resort hotel was only 10 minutes away from the airport and another 10 minutes by walk to the Strip. We checked-in, dropped off our luggage in our very spacious room and had dinner. We watch some of the show - "Battle of the Sexes" on stage, which was embarassing because the women were so dumb! I was so tempted to go up the stage and answer because it was simply humiliating watching those women who represent my gender. When the show ended, we hung out a bit by the stage and decided to attempt to catch the little fishes we saw by the shore. Yes, we were unsuccessful - those little buggers! - but it was fun. The resort hotel has a mini-club, which we checked out for a bit. It was mostly old people there so we left quickly after. We later went to sleep after returning to our room.
