Hospitality and One Love

When I think of hospitality, I think of Jamaica. The staff at Jewel Runaway Bay were some of the most welcoming folks I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting.

Every day upon returning to our room, we always had the most creative works of art waiting for us. Who would’ve thought of towels as works of art? I love that even the most simple of things…like clean towels…were displayed in ways that required someone to “go the extra mile.” We stayed for a full 7 days and here are just a few of the creative designs that we found upon returning to our room. To me, hospitality is going the “extra mile” and paying attention to detail with the intention of making others feel welcome.

The housekeeping staff at Jewel Runaway Bay certainly understood the meaning of hospitality.

Even the food was displayed in creative ways….

There was no sparing hospitality at the pools or the beach either.

Whenever I think of “One Love”….I definitely think of hospitality. I’ll be back soon Jamaica.

SOME moments you experience while travelling end up completely changing your life. The memories stay with you forever and years later a sight or sound will trigger that memory and take you right back to that moment once again. I found that just experiencing new places seems to promote self-development for me. Travelling and the new experiences that come with it, has been my most influential teacher. I have learned the most about myself while travelling. Typically most people do not change until they experience a life-changing event that moves them, shakes them up, and changes their perspective. For many people, including myself, it may be the death of a friend or family member. For others, it may be a life-threatening illness. However, if you really want to CHOOSE to change your life and perspective, you can choose to travel. This is one life-changing experience that you voluntarily undertake. You don't have to travel far, basically you just need to get off your couch and your phone and experience life. Make it a goal to regularly go some where that you have never visited. While you are there, BE PRESENT. Look around, take in the sights and sounds, take a few pictures but BE ALL THERE!! This blog is about my travels and experiences. I hope to inspire you to experience some of your own.
