Wikitravel: Jamaica

I really had a fantastic time editing the Wikitravel pages. As I mentioned before, I lived in Jamaica for several months when I was a child, so I had significant knowledge to give on Jamaica in particular, to choose just one of many islands I could comment on.

In fact, I got really into writing, and I wrote a LOT. You can find the Jamaica page here. There pretty much was nothing there before I got there. It's easy to discern from overall writing style which are my contributions and which aren't, however I'll list them here so you know where to look:

  • Added detail to description of Jamaica
  • Added the 14 parishes
  • Wrote all the city descriptions: Kingston, Montego Bay, Negril, Ocho Rios, Port Antonio
  • added a resort to Hotels and Resorts (Sandals and Beaches resorts)
  • Wrote the sections "By Plane" and "By Car" under "Get In"
  • Stay Safe
  • Stay Healthy
  • Respect

It really was fun, and I hope people can benefit from my advice. I could have written even more, but I'm exhausted and I think I made quite a substantial contribution for the day! If you have any contibutions you would like to make yourself, the site is and just search under the Continent in which your country or city is located. It's actually kind of fulfilling...
