I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, you can’t go wrong with a bit of Bob Marley. Todays song takes me back to being 15. My dad was marrying my step-mother in St. Lucia, so we had a 2 week holiday in the Caribbean.
There were 7 of us in total: my dad and step-mother, her mum and dad, and my stepsister and her boyfriend. So 3 couples and me. Needless to say I spent a lot of time by myself; but at an all inclusive resort in the Caribbean? Not so bad.
I got to drink (which at 15 was a big deal), even got to go behind one of the bars and the barman taught me some cocktails and a little bit of flaring, snorkel for free thanks to a guest at the resort, and more than one holiday romance (which at 15 was a big deal). But this song, this song was played multiple times daily around the entire place. It’s another one that would be on the soundtrack of my life.
