I`ve been on planes, cars, and many things in my life but I have never been on a cruise, and on this Alaskan Cruise I was able to try new things. In our ship they had swimming pools, ping pong tables, casinos, and a extraordinary ice cream bar. One of my favorite parts of this trip was holding two baby sled dogs that were two weeks old. I also liked kayaking, plus I shared a kayak with my sister, Mia, and I controlled the kayak from the back. After that my family and I went on a bus ride to see caribou, bears, and glaciers. I also went on a hike and float with the Kendal`s (who are my cousins), because there daughter Annie was sleepy. I saw cool trees and fascinating wildlife. I even was allowed to eat berries that tasted like watermelon, but
Have you ever wanted to go to Jamaica because of their lifestyle or accent? Sure, you did! But, is their lifestyle really what it is put out to be? Jamaican culture is the up-building, upholding, and one of the starting points of African culture. So, I am here to inform
General Henry Clinton smiled as his troops arrived at the end of Jamaica Pass. The foolish Americans believed that they were safe inside New York. They were wrong, as the British Army of 20,000 soldiers were marching towards New York and would flank the Americans while more soldiers would push from the front. His light infantry battalion was approaching the place where the Americans would be guarding the pass with rapid speed, led by their guide William Howard and his son, William Junior. They were reluctant at first, but they were offered bribes and threatened to help the British so they gave in. Behind Clinton's battalion were 14 additional battalions led by General Howe and Cornwallis. The rest of the army, consisting of Hessians, would
Paul Shulli My trip to Jamaica In August of 2010, our church embarked on a work and witness trip to Jamaica. The group consisted of two teams, a work and a ministry team. The work team assisted the people of Westmoreland to complete their local church. The ministry team presented bible stories and skits through puppetry at various locations. This Mission was called "Maddy's Mission".
Jamaica and the English powers Jamaica is a country that has a rich literary history that has been muchly improved by Great britain but although Jamaica has managed a relationship with Britain, the British colonizers had been ultimately detrimental to the native people already living there. Jamaica was founded by Christopher Columbus in the late 1400's and was eventually taken over by Spain in the mid 16th century (”Jamaica.”). Spain believed in using Jamaica for farming and used the natives as slaves. The Spanish treated the natives so poorly that the natives died soon after Spain got there in the Taino genocide(“The History of Jamaica.”). This shows how Spain did not see the natives as people but as animals. The original people of Jamaica
Utopia On a cold wintery 10 degrees day in December Blaize decided he was going to go on a cruise ship with his friends to the Bahamas where the weather has been 75-80 degrees . Blaize and his friends Seth, Matt, Leonard, and Cameron all enjoy many of the same things. The cruise was to visit the Bahama islands and Cuba. On our way to the Bahamas we went through some extremely rough waters. The captain came over the loudspeaker and we were all told to “go to your rooms and stay in them until told otherwise” in a firm frightened voice. We all thought, “why, what is happening but we did as we were told. After sitting in our room for over an hour Seth, Cameron, Leonard, Matt, came up with the idea to explore the ship. When we opened the
The author Jamaica Kincaid talks about her hatred for tourist and how they take breaks from their world to come relax in another. These tourists only expect to see the beauty in the places they visit but they do not take in account all the hard work that locals do in their everyday life. As a result, locals have begun to feel hatred towards the tourists. They envy the fact that tourists are lucky enough to visit these types of places yet the locals will not have the chance to explore these other worlds and be tourists.
Traveling brings out great things and memories because of people's culture, their cooking and adds a new flavor to your lifestyle. Exploring the world opens up your horizon to many places like Africa, Japan, or even Italy. Would you do it? I have traveled to many different places in my life and wanted everyone to do something like that.

Hola Senora Bernal, I just returned from an amazing vacation. I went with my family on a cruise ship for 7 days. Our ship was called Oasis of the Seas and is the second largest passenger ship created; we had 6,400 people on board. It was so big it had a full volleyball/basketball court, a mini golf course, a zipline, an ice skating rink and 21 pools/hot tubs. This isn't even half of the crazy ammenities they offer on board. They also offer shore excusions for the various countries we stopped in. This was very important to me as I had never left the country before then. The Oasis docked in Mexico, Jamacia and Haiti. More specifically we docked on the island of Cozumel in Mexico. In Cozumel we took a snorkling tour to the Palancar and Columbia reefs led by Diving Captain Carlos. It was my first time snorkling and it was amazing. The water was perfectly clear and we could see over 150 feet. We had beautiful views of coral and rock formations and well as tons of marine life. We saw 3 sea turtles, a school of young barracudas and one huge 5 foot long barrcuda that was scarred and battle
AAs I looked out the window of the bus, I see people huddled around fires and destroyed buildings. While I am overcome with anxiety, fear and terror, I think to myself, “What have I gotten myself into?” I wonder if I made the right choice to go on this mission trip and how life would be in Jamaica. Although I had all of these doubts about Jamaica, I knew I was not here on a vacation and instead was here to help the disabled children and adults in the Mustard Seed Communities.
We can see authority being established by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank (WB) when funding Jamaica. Based on the contract with Jamaica, the IMF and WB controls what Jamaica can spend, the interest rate they can charge, and how they can use their money, to sum
In conclusion, it was the best trip ever. I got to visit with a lot of family, and have a great time with them. My favorite part was Gulf World. I hope that we can visit Panama City Beach again
History of Jamaica Columbus discovered Jamaica on May 5, 1494, one year after he heard of the existence of the island. However, the true history of Jamaica begins with the African-Jamaican people who came to the island twenty years after the English took control from the Spaniards. The history of Jamaica can be broken up into different time periods, which were defined by watershed moments or events. Jamaican history begins with the establishment of the native islanders called the Tainos who inhabited the island for hundreds of years before the discoveries of Columbus. (JNHT 1)
