We travel a lot as a family, and I do quite a bit on my own for business, but several times a year, an opportunity will arise where I can take just one child with me on travel trips. Last year, my youngest daughter joined me on a trip to Turks & Caicos and the experience taught me more about my daughter in four days than I would have known had I not whisked her away for 3 days on a mother and daughter trip. I couldn’t wait for my eldest daughter’s turn!
Negril, Jamaica was the first place I ever visited. My parents took me there when I was three years old, so although I don’t remember the experience, I’ve always wanted to return. As luck would have it, we were invited on a trip to Beaches Negril, so my daughter and I had our chance for a one-on-one trip, and it exceeded my expectations.
Mom & Daughter Flight Time
When you travel with three children under the age of 7, quiet time is rare if not non-existent. Our flight was amazing as we had time to talk, play and read together with no interruptions!
Our room at Beaches Negril came with two double beds and we didn't have to share! We each got our own bed and were able to stretch out luxuriously.
Oh, yes we did! The Red Lane Spa at Beaches Negril is nothing short of extravagant and relaxing. This was my daughter's first trip to a day spa, and it didn't disappoint. We had a mother/daughter massage, a treatment offered to the guests of the resort.
Ah, the pool! Just my girl and I! We relaxed by the pool, in the pool and floated along the Lazy River. It was simply perfection!
Memories From My Childhood
Big Bird was one of my all-time favourite characters growing up. We had a chance to meet him and the other characters from Sesame Street during the character breakfast by the water. Talk about a full circle moment!
The staff at Beaches Negril arranges plenty of fun activities for the kids to take part in and crafts was one of them. We were able to decorate seashells with glitter and created some fun pieces to take home with us.
Between our trip on the catamaran and all of the other activities at Beaches Negril, my daughter and I had an amazing and memorable trip. It's one her and I will never forget!
