Travel to Jamaica!

Published March 13, 2000 9:17AM (EST)

Let us lead you in a visualization exercise. Enter to win and it could be real. gets you to Jamaica and provides all the perfect travel accoutrements. Take a trip with us!

Before you travel, revitalize your mind, body and spirit as the scents of Lavender mingle with Lemongrass in a warm bath. In that dreamy post-bath state, you and your travel mate toss your favorite summer clothes and other essentials into your chic new travel bags and go! Lip-gloss and sun block go into your red Cosmetic Travel Clutch (which can double as a purse in the
evenings) and shaving tools and cologne go into the smartly designed Blue Striped Dop Kit. Take along your new Fold Up Travel Canvas Tote Bags so you can carry home the goods you pick up from Jamaican markets.

Now imagine yourself settling comfortably in your first or business class seat next to your travel companion. The dry plane air does not wreak havoc on your system this time. Hydrate your skin with the natural citrus hand lotion from your Travel Necessities Kit, which includes body wash and a hydrating body mist. Drape your suede-finished Dreamy Eye Pillow over your eyes to block out the light. A flight has never been as enjoyable as this.

You have no trouble collecting your bags when you arrive in Jamaica because your Lizard Print Luggage tags set them apart. The driver greeting you at the airport whisks you away to the new Ritz Carlton in the Rose Hall plantation area of Montego Bay. The colorful, verdant gardens, bubbling fountains, arched doorways, vaulted ceilings and towering columns that define the elegant property serve to complete your transformation into a relaxed and perfectly content being.

Relish the views of the cerulean Caribbean Sea while you lounge on your private balcony. Spy on beach goers or follow distant sailboats with your
sleek, new chrome binoculars. Record your musings on the meaning of life and the importance of sunshine and fresh air in your new beautifully bound Italian-made journal. Saunter barefoot down to the pool or take a long walk along the beach. Carry a trashy novel or Tolstoy in your new Straw Tote bag -it's up to you.

Your regiment of relaxation also includes a day on the 18-hole championship golf course as well as a full body massage. And when you return to your hectic schedule back home, transport yourself back to Jamaica with the pictures that you have collected in your new hand constructed photo album.

If you are not relaxed after this complete vacation, there is no hope.
