Obsessed With Jamaica

So I'm wondering if there is anyone else out there like me..lol!

I L-O-V-E Jamaica. When I'm not pricing a trip on a daily basis-I'm thinking about it.

The day I get home from a Jamaican trip-I start thinking about the next one.

I call/text my husband here and there when I find good deals and he told me yesterday that I am addicted to Jamaica like a crackhead is to crack. The more I thought about it...other than my addiction being much more healthier...I couldn't fight with him on it.

Please tell me I'm not the only one.

:)

Your not the only one Joanne, there are others like us. My husband and I seriously thought of moving there instead of Florida next year.

30 more sleeps and I'll be back to "my second home" for 2 weeks. It can't come soon enough!

Join the club.

In my case the symptoms include all you said plus:

-An entire bookshelf dedicated to Jamaican authors and books about Jamaica

-a Rainman-like knowledge of Jamaican trivia such as parish capitals, history etc from all that reading

-daily reading and posting on not 1, not 2, not 3, not 4 but 5 Jamaican b boards

-an odd desire to see every Jamaican photo on snapfish, Picasa, and about 5 other photo services

-a burning need to spend time in every parish and see everything I've ever heard of in JA that sounds cool (ie climb Blue Mountain, hike Robins Bay, check out caves in the Alps....)
