This is it roadies!   10 episodes of fun and 3 seasons deep, we are at another finale for the #DownDiRoad series! This week we head out to the Harbour View round about give some steps, showing you how we par! 'Par' is a Jamaican colloquialism which basically means to chill or hang out with your friends and here at downdiroad.com that is our favourite pastime; we come together as a group and partake in each other's company. There are a few steps, so watch the season finale below & let us know in the comments how you par with your friends. I really just want to thank everybody who has been watching the videos and reading the blog posts on the website.

As time progressed and we all became more invested in the vision, it has grown and continues...

#DownDiRoad goes #RounDiGlobe – Jacob’s Well – Texas USA

#DownDiRoad goes #RounDiGlobe – Jacob’s Well – Texas USA

GREETINGS ROADIES! Sorry for shouting but I'm excited because the #DownDiRoad series just went international! Introducing the first installment of #RounDiGlobe. I'm on vacation in the States right now so I couldn't come here & not do some exploring. I spent some time in Texas & visited a beautiful watering hole called Jacob's Well. Jacob's Well is in the Texas countryside, in a place called Wemblerley close to the busy city of Austin. It's a natural artisan spring really, but it's main attraction is a deep well, 13 feet wide & over 100 feet deep! Check out the visuals from the visit & do remember to subscribe to the website & YouTube channel for more!   Until the next one! - Doofy D   ...

South Coast 2.0 – St. Elizabeth Weekend

South Coast 2.0 – St. Elizabeth Weekend

DownDiRoad EP. 9 - South Coast 2.0   Mawnin good people of the world!!!! Too much??....... aahh!   This week we switch it up! You are reading words by Rik!   Sooooo.... how to keep this short????? The DownDiRoad JA crew traversed the parish of St. Elizabeth a few weeks ago and I must say we had a great time. There were a few hiccups here and there but all in all it was a great adventure.   Let us begin!   We departed from Kingston a bit behind schedule on Friday evening, as is the case when humans (Jamaicans in particular), decide to do anything as a group. The journey seemed long as we were unsure of the exact location of our residence for the next couple of days; however from Kingston, we got to Waikiki Guest House in Treasure Beach in under 3 hours. On Saturday morning we woke up quite early, as we had several plans for the day.   First on the itinerary was breakfast and our first choice was...

Bae Vibes – Bae Trap

Bae Vibes – Bae Trap

#downdiroadLIVE is back again!   Real quick, check out the newest episode featuring yours truly Duane aka Doofy! This week #DownDiRoad is literally LIVE! Yes, after a long hiatus I've finally decided to make an appearance as a dj at my good friend Stamma's bi-weekly Bee Vibes event. This one was close to my heart, because I usually have some reasoning sessions with Stamma & brainstorm ideas for the event, so jokingly I told him he should do a Trap / Hip-Hop edition & let me dj. Turns out he actually did give me a link to dj & I think it went pretty well considering it's been a few years since I hung up my "dj headphones."   Check out the vibes from Bae Vibes right here & if you want to listen to some live audio from the early round of Bae Trap, check out my Soundcloud page at http://soundloud.com/djdoofy. Big up to all who came out & maybe you'll see...

Pretty Wata – Tropical Bliss & Luminous Lagoon

Wah gwaahn massive? So if you follow @downdiroadja on Instagram or subscribe to our YouTube channel you would have seen that episode 8 of the #DownDiRoad travel series was released last weekend! We took a trip out to the North Coast and made two stops so check out the visuals right here! #DownDiRoad Ep. 8 - Pretty Wata Tropical Bliss beach in Whitehouse St. James is the newest beach attraction in the Montego Bay area. Pretty beach with all new facilities and not crowded at all. Entry fee is very affordable as locals pay only JMD $300! This one is a steal and if you're looking for a beach that's not too popular and off the grid, definitely check out Tropical Bliss. Next up we have the world famous Glistening Waters Luminous Lagoon tour. This spot is not new but the crew has always wanted to stop by and we finally got our chance! For more info you can look online, but...

Greetings massive! The journey to Likkle Portie was long and wet, but ended with a pleasant surprise! (pls.... don't) Check out the newest episode of the #DownDiRoad travel series right here, but please stay for the story & photo gallery below!   #DownDiRoad Episode 7 - Likkle Portie - Portland Jamaica Adventure   So boom! One more week one more adventure! When we were drafting the schedule for #DownDiRoad SE03, Nanny Falls in Portland was a high priority on the list. We have been to most of the popular beaches and waterfalls in Portland, but there is sooo much more up in the mountains that we have yet to see. The plan was to spend a weekend in Portland, with the focus being on Nanny Falls, Soldier Camp Bar & Grill, and then Somerset Falls.   Just know say none a that never keep! Long story short, it rained all weekend.   We started the journey by heading up to Nanny Falls in Moore Town on Saturday afternoon to start...

Shanty Man – Ital Par

Shanty Man – Ital Par

Greetings massive! Another week, and another adventure on downdiroad.com. Today I share with you an adventure I had a few weeks ago. We've been meaning to feature a vegan restaurant on #DownDiRoad and my good friend Immanuel (popularly known as Ras-I) suggested we visit the chef known as 'Shanty Man' who is based in Gordon Town, a little up from Papine in St. Andrew. We set out to visit Shanty & I have to say it was a pleasant surprise. The food was amazing & I personally learned a lot about Shanty Man, his history, and the future of his empire in this little interview. Shanty Man is the main chef and he specializes in natural juices and vegan food. Menu items include items like peanut porridge, turmeric chick peas, tofu, callalloo, rice and peas. He also sells clothes & jewellery. I hope you all will watch & enjoy, and please let us know when you visit Shanty Man! Shanty Man is...
