Where Have You Travelled?
I have had the pleasure of visiting quite a few places that have been very special to me. I have travelled to a number of the States in the US – my first experience being California when my Mom and I came from Jamaica. I lived there for 4 years and while I was fairly young when I was there, I have lots of fond memories of my time in California. I have visited all the states on the Eastern Seaboard, while living in New York for 18 years. New York is where I consider my stomping ground. I grew up in Brooklyn; met and made some amazing friends while living in New York and am a New Yawka for life.

By far, my favorite place in the US is Alaska. I lived there for 3 years, fell in love as we were landing and discovered that I can live on my own and come out fine on the other side.
Across the pond, my Mom, brother and I visited Birmingham, England to visit my grandmother and grandfather for 6 weeks during the summer of 1992. I had a blast and what an education I got on grocery shopping. This was my first experience of BYOB, and you also had to bag your own groceries. I’ve been living in Canada for 11 years, and once again, I’m on a new adventure that’s sure to be memorable.
My travel experiences have been light, and that is something that will change in the near future. What I will say is that each place I HAVE visited have been an experience I will always treasure.
