Default Ocho Rios-Trevor Hudlin!!



My wife and I recently took a cruise on the HAL Zaandam, at which she made several arrangments for shore excursions separate from the ship as we wanted some personal time to do these things. The highlight of our trip was our stop in Ocho Rios, Jamaica.

Kathy (my wife) had made several inquiries to the local tour guides by email and eventually began communcating with Trevor Hudlin. We had some very specific stops that Trevor was more than willing to handle. So we booked our day with him. What a marvelous day!

Trevor was already at the dock when our ship pulled in. We thought that we'd be with others that may have booked with him, but it turned out that we were the only two on the tour. He was all smiles in typical "island style" manner, and was a genuinely pleasant man. We started our day by paying a brief visit to the local Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses to visit, after which Trevor took us to Dunns River Falls. We spent a couple of hours there, and when he picked us up to take us to lunch he took us on a brief tour filled with info about the history of the island, the parish where we were... I mean it was GREAT!!

We ate at the Ruins At The Falls, a great place if you enjoy an incredible atmosphere in which to dine!! After lunch, Trevor took us through Fern Gully (where I saw a walking tree!!) and then on to the Wassi Pottery factory, a small but beautiful place where the locals make some incredible pieces. As we took the brief tour, Trevor waited patiently for us to finish and then took us back to our final destination. All in all, we spent almost the entire day (8 am-4 pm) with Trevor.

The reason for the title of this post is: During the tour, he drove by one of Ian Fleming's island homes. Ian Fleming is the original author of the James Bond books. As we talked about this, I shared info with Trevor about where Ian Fleming got the name for his hero. We then joked about how Trevor should update his website and his business cards to reflect a "James Bond" type appearance and the tagline...
