Travel! Your money will return. Your time will not.

Travel! Your money will return. Your time will not. This is a powerful quote!! This month, my blog will be short and sweet. Do today what you may not be able to do tomorrow. Enjoy your life! See the world. What are the things you have always wanted to do? What places have you always wanted to see? Life is short. Do not delay your travel bucket list. Save, plan, and take advantage of various travel programs and promotional offers, so you can see the beauty and wonder of God's world while you have the health and means to do so. Whether you go alone, with family, with friends, or with that special someone, GO! You will be thankful for the experiences and the memories. Travel. Your money will return. Your time will not. My husband and I wholeheartedly believe that travel is an essential part of life and are diligently working to see as much of the world as God gives us the strength to see. We plan in advance and work to check things off our travel bucket list every single month.

Zoetry Resort... Over Rated IMHO

In July, the reggae loving pair ventured back home to Jamaica for Reggae Sumfest 2018.  We were only in Montego Bay, Jamaica for four days and three nights and stayed at the Montego Bay Zoetry Resort.  This resort is branded as the top of the line for the Unlimited Vacation Club Amstar resorts.

There was a long pier with stairs that you can walk on and watch the sunset as well as jump off and swim at the end.  There is a perfect area to swim without coral reef.  The pier was lovely and quite romantic. Overall, we had an amazing time in Jamaica and enjoyed the peac

All Inclusive Resort or Cruise

There are many pros and cons to both all inclusive resorts and to cruises.  We have stayed at all inclusive resorts in Jamaica, Dominican Republic, Mexico, Costa Rica, and Panama.  We are Unlimited Vacation Members of the Amstar resorts and although each resort is different; the quality is pretty consistent.  We have tried other all inclusive resorts to see and experience the difference but there were many things that we did not like.  For example, with our membership we get an automatic upgrade to the best category room available.  We love this because we can book the cheaper room but always get an ocean view preferred club room.  Our resorts have 24 hour room service and often come with dummy waiters so if its late at night and you don't want to answer the door; it's all good.  Another very important feature of our resorts is that you don't have to make reservations for the restaurants.  This is extremely important to us because we often don't know what we are in the
