    I love the Jamaica photos! I will vote for you and hopefully I can win a Jamaican vacation! :D Sounds like a blast. I’m going to be starting a YouTube channel pretty soon, so Jamaica would definably allow for some great video opportunities. :P

    @nadine – Your video and Sonia’s video of swimming with the dolphins are the best.
