Join Us for Reggae Marathon 2019: Run in Jamaica’s Paradise

With the 2019 Reggae Marathon race day on Sunday, December 8, it’s not too early to start planning for Jamaica’s premier marathon event.

Enthusiastic supporters come out along the looped, internationally certified course to support participants.

Vegan Food in Montego Bay, Jamaica: iTal is Vital

Adwa_Ital_Jamaica_Kimatni

iTal is vital and is the reason I seek out Adwa when I visit Montego Bay, Jamaica. In fact, I’ll be back in July for Reggae Sumfest. With two locations, (876-952-6554, 876-952-8947) Mudada Hamand ascertains the fresh plant foods for my Jamaican brethren and sistas are some of the purest dishes in the world. Fresh fruit smoothies, a small library, nuts and seeds, pure ital food and conscious reggae playing are the key ingredients of this plant-based café. The servings are fulfilling and they only use whole, organic foods such as brown rice. The Jerk Akee and Tofu and the Veggie Balls are my two favorite dishes.

Please stop in Adwa next time you find yourself in MoBay. Ya Mon!

Water, sun, plant food, family, friends, reggae music, nature and animals — in no particular order — are the key ingredients to my happiness. This is the reason I travel to Jamaica a few times a year, especially in July for Reggae Sumfest. The purity of the land, the positive vibrations of the music and the enthusiastic spirits of the people enlightens me to the fullest while running the hills with the locals or swimming in the Caribbean keeps my soul and mind connected with the energetic movements of my body.

Reggae Heat Wave: Jamaica’s Sumfest Concerts in Montego Bay

Jamiaca_2013_Reggae_Sumfest_Half_Moon....08“Come back to Jamaica” is not just a branded slogan for the indigenous and cultural island, it’s a welcoming message of freedom, exploration, and methodical stress release from the hectic demands of metropolitan life and exaggerated work hours required from corporate America. My soul yearns for life-everlasting tranquility, my body craves warmth and clear waters, and my heart desires the palpable rhythms and spiritual lyrics of Reggae music. For this very reason I try to rendezvous to the island of “One Love, One Heart” as often as possible, especially when Reggae Sumfest is in town. [Read more…]
