My trip down south

I'm going to a family wedding in early February to Jamaica. It's my first warm vacation in since 1995. I bought three new bathing suits as my plan is to sit on the beach/pool side for 5 or 6 days. Eat, drink, swim, read, sleep and repeat. Three bathing suits is what everyone recommends, as it takes about 2 days for one to completely dry. I have a dress for the wedding and a few other things to wear, but I'll be honest and I'm planning on packing light. T-shirts, a pair of capri's, a skirt, a few dresses, flip flops, gym clothes, a pair of jeans, a couple of light sweaters, socks, undies, bras and beach cover ups. I'm planning on bring back with me : rum, vanilla and coffee beans. I'm planning a spa day, complete with a massage and a pedicure. I may take a day trip, but I'm not sure yet. I'll be buying a Kobo and fill it with free books from the library. I may bring a paperback or two and leave them behind. I may also bring some snack foods, along with my own coffee mug and water bottle. That's my trip in a nut shell. I'll be hanging with family, and spending time floating in the water, taking part in some yoga classes and having some fun.
