A Jamaican who enjoys exploring the best of her island and writing about it

I’m Rochelle Knight, a multifaceted woman, junior doctor and writer who was born, raised and still resides in Kingston, Jamaica. I have a whole blog dedicated to my travels around Jamaica, especially off-the-beaten-path places, so I guess I don’t have to tell you that I enjoy adventure. Adventures from Elle is my brainchild and a blog about how to experience Jamaica like a local on a budget, written by a local on a budget. Exploring my homeland through inexpensive day-trips is the trade-off for not being able to afford travel overseas currently, & I’m loving it! In addition to travelling and writing, I also enjoy reading, dining at new restaurants and recreational hiking. Writing allows me to express my creativity which clinical medicine sometimes suppresses.

Your Guide to the Jamaican Blue Mountains

My favourite corner of Jamaica is the Blue Mountains without a doubt. This commanding mountain range spans several parishes in the eastern end of the island and was recognized as Jamaica’s first UNESCO world heritage site in 2015. The Blue Mountains are an ecotourist’s paradise with an abundance of conifers, ferns, bromeliads and endemic birds not seen in most other parts of the country. There’s also quite a lot to see, taste and do in these rugged hillsides, so let Adventures from Elle be your guide to this magnetic Jamaican destination which is still relatively unexplored in comparison to the resort towns up north.
