Your Vacation Coordinator, Mimi

image46

I have been blessed my first 50 years of life. However, I do realize that I have missed out on so much of what the world has to offer by not taking advantage of all the travel opportunities that have been presented to me over the years.   Going to Cancun to celebrate my 50th birthday gave me the opportunity to reflect on my life and how I wanted to spend the second half of it. 


I have decided that traveling is one of the best ways to learn more about yourself and others.  Traveling with family and friends can make it an even more amazing experience.  


As I step into the second half of my life, I'm committing to travel more and I would love for you to join me and be a part of my Travel Squad.   Click below to see the fun we've had so far!


Vacation Goals:  To look this peaceful during and after every vacation!

Our Host, Inforno Travel Group

image47

 We met Jamiel and Michelle Dawson, the owners of Inforno Travel Group during our visit to the Royalton Negril in 2017.  They made sure everything was taken care of during that trip and we are confident they will do the same for us.  


They have hosted events and cruises since their first in 2001 as they set sail to Cozumel, Mexico and Key West.  Their vacations were started because of their desire to travel to various destinations with friends and other urban professionals, who had a like-minded dual concept of traveling the world while providing international community service to impoverished areas. They do all this while creating memories that will last a lifetime!  You will find people who go to different locations as a group, but not many who travel together as a family.

THE STORY OF BLOODY BAY, NEGRIL

Bloody Bay, Negril is home to one of the most coveted beaches on the island of Jamaica, given its tall palm trees, pristine white sand and turquoise ocean. Given its coral reefs, this bay is also an excellent place for snorkelling.  


This area is also known for its history as a whaling port and fisherman’s village, which serves as a basis for its ominous name. Today, whaling is no longer practised in Jamaica, but fishing is still a common activity for many locals around the town of Negril.


Easily the most intriguing story behind this Bay relates to the capturing of John Rackham, popularly known as “Calico Jack.” Calico Jack was famous for commandeering both small vessels and large ships in the bays off the coast of islands in the Caribbean. In 1720, he was declared a pirate by government officials in Jamaica and a warrant was issued for his arrest. 


Jonathan Barnet, a pirate hunter, found out about the warrant, and began to pursue Calico Jack who was busy sailing the coast of Jamaica, antagonizing fishermen and overtaking small fishing boats. On Calico Jack’s marauding voyage, he discovered a small vessel on the bay belonging to a crew of English pirates. Having found his kin, all the merry pirates settled down for an afternoon of drinking on Jack’s ship.  A savvy Barnet found Calico Jack’s ship anchored on the shores of Bloody Bay and launched an attack. Unfortunately, the crew members enjoyed the rum so much that they were too inebriated to put up any reasonable resistance against Barnet.  Calico Jack, his lover Anne Bonny and the whole crew were captured by Barnet and his men.  All found aboard Jack's ship were convicted of piracy and met their fate by execution in Port Royal.
