Stepping outside of Sardinia for this photo challenge, I find myself at …
YS Falls, St. Elizabeth, Jamaica
This 7 tiered flow of water is nestled within a secluded valley in Jamaica’s ‘breadbasket’ parish – St. Elizabeth.
YS Falls is a spectacular sight to behold. Throngs of tourists and locals alike flock to this working cattle and horse ranch each year. There are natural pools for a relaxing swim or for the more adventurous there is zip lining over the falls. We spent a good few hours here, hiking and taking in the gorgeous views.
The Appleton Estate distillery is located in the picturesque Nassau Valley in the parish of St. Elizabeth. They have been distilling rum for 260 years with the age-old process of time and patience.
We spent a wonderful morning there, having a private tour and tasting every type of rum on offer. Extracting sugarcane juice was one of the ancient traditions of which we partook and even got to taste the fruits of our labour. Yum!

Me in the carefully selected barrel room – full of rum!
At Appleton, the rum is aged in oak barrels which allows for a smooth and mellow spirit. The slow distillation process creates a flavourful and delicate rum, one that you won’t soon forget.
