OUT­LOOK:

Jamaica Gleaner - - WELL - – Tick­oya Joseph

“WEL­COME TO Chukka! It’s time to play!” was the greet­ing, or more like the prom­ise.

We re­cently made the trip to Trelawny, where we had a sur­prise for Restau­rant Week Am­bas­sador LaT­ifa Brown, who had be­come pre­oc­cu­pied with self­ies while the crew packed up in prepa­ra­tion for our ATV ride. Of course, she was too pre­oc­cu­pied to no­tice the change in plans – the tak­ing of a selfie is se­ri­ous busi­ness. “Can you drive your­self?” “Oh! Huh? I thought I was fly­board­ing,” said Tifa, sur­prised.

The ques­tion was a jolt back to re­al­ity. Our plans have changed, so be­ing a good sport, Tifa changed her mind­set and ad­justed her out­fit. She was ready to take on a new ad­ven­ture and got a crash course on how to op­er­ate the ATV.

Just one thing stood in her way. “Pause, there is mud. Do you guys know how I hate dirt? “

Slow to get started, she skil­fully skipped the mud pud­dles, but as the rest of the gang sped off, she de­cided she wouldn’t be left be­hind.

Through the mud pud­dles, tall bushes and trees, she con­quered the trail, but not with­out stop­ping to get the nec­es­sary selfie along the way.

This ad­ven­ture must be doc­u­mented.

Blood pump­ing, adren­a­line high – “What’s next? What’s next?” asked a now-ex­cited Tifa. Zip-lin­ing! At first glance, zip-lin­ing can ap­pear daunt­ing.

The height and the an­gry river gush­ing be­low did not aid in de­creas­ing the fear.

But our Restau­rant Week Am­bas­sador was up to the chal­lenge. Fly­ing through the for­est, she screamed, but not out of fear. Not Tifa. She had only one ques­tion: What’s next? info@chukka.com reser­va­tions@ chukka.comwww.chukka.com
