Dry Land Tourist Chronicles: Appleton Rum Tour

It has been awhile since I have made any treks across my beautiful island. Of course, the Dry Land Tourist was eager to add another chapter to the travel chronicles and luckily for me, I was able to visit an oldie but good.

On Saturday, May 17, 2014, myself and members of my Rotaract Club loaded up four vehicles and headed to the beautiful parish of St. Elizabeth for the Appleton Rum Tour. It was my second time on the tour and I felt like a Rum Tour virgin. I was in awe of the beauty of the Appleton Valley just like I was three years ago when I first visited with my Rotaract Club.

I tried vlogging the experience, however, Nix (my camera) decided to be a diva so that was a no go. We traveled via Highway 2000, which got us to Clarendon in literally no time. We made a pit stop at Juici Beef, Clarendon Park for bathroom breaks and food runs. We were thoroughly entertained by the vendors who saw it fit to complement us on the most random things...it was actually rather refreshing. The hustle and bustle of City life sometimes makes one forget the warmth of the Jamaican people. This encounter was a good reminder.

It took us approximately 3 1/2 hours to get to Appleton.
