Jamaica tourism

Remember this from 1972!!!

Hello friends! Take a look at this blast from the past:

This tourism ad is one of Jamaica's most well known ads and dates back to 1972. Do you remember the first time you saw this ad? http://bit.ly/10M3zYZ

I guess I'm guilty of the "If you can say you remember Woodstock...then you weren't really there." scenario. Whilst I can't remember exactly when or where I was when first viewing the ad, this does ring a bell. Sadly for some of us, gravity and father time have done what they do best...but the spirit is the same...and to us at least, that's why we return to JA. 2 weeks from tomorrow to Sandals Whitehouse and our spirit will be renewed. Thanks for posting.

SRCFan enjoy your trip! We head back July 22nd. I remember this well I was serving in the military and many of us loved the add and the poster, actually made it to Jamaica for five days that year, and as far as Woodstock I made it within 7 miles but that was it!!! Caught hell from parents for attempting it and disappearing for a few days at a young age!

petecat: We sound like kindred souls...I was 12 years old for Woodstock One, so just a bit outside my ability to pull a fast one on my parents...at least you got close...to this day I want to visit the site just to say I was there. Gonna pull a long weekend this fall in the Monticello area to see the leaves and visit the site/museum.

I noticed your TA avatar home city and I'd like to ask a couple travel related questions. Mind if I pm you on an off thread topic, but still very much travel related?
