Ocho Rios looks beautiful! And that resort is stunning!! I really hope we can go to Jamaica in the next few months.
For now I am enjoying Orlando! A few days ago, I went to this new spot in town: the Artegon Marketplace. It’s advertised as the anti-mall, which is funny because when I got there it looked just like a regular mall with a movie theater. However,when I explored it a little bit, I realized every single store is completely unique (with the exception of a random Subway ahah).
The stores are all based on handcrafted and/or old school goods. From handmade jewelry and clothes to old records, toys and surf gear, this is the most unconventional shopping place I’ve found in Florida so far. I bought this beautiful necklace in a store called Via Francesca to give L as her birthday gift. I’m going back for some more Christmas shopping because I can have pretty much everything personalized.
Another cool thing about Artegon is that it hosts events and I actually went for the Food Truck Wars. As a foodie, I strongly believe moments like these are the only ones in the world that make the concept of war to become acceptable… That being said, I was fairly excited to find out what food trucks were coming to the event. There were more than 40 and I unfortunately had to make hard and painful choices since I couldn’t try them all. In the end, I elected my favorites: Over The Top Pita, where I tasted a delicious Fajita Pita; Peru Power, where I tried a fabulous ceviche for the first time; and Cousins Maine Lobster, where I savored some yummy lobster quesadillas. I honestly did not take many pictures of the food because I couldn’t wait to eat it! You’ll just have to trust my palate!
These food trucks usually travel around Central Florida so it’s a good idea to keep track of them in case I start craving some lobster, pita or ceviche… Or in case you’re in town visiting me : )
See you soon!
