Olympic athlete Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce shares her favourite travel listings on Airbnb
“The world is a book, and those who do not travel only read one page,” said St Augustine.
While travel has been a lot harder to do during the pandemic, as the world slowly opens up and all eyes are on Tokyo to celebrate the 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games, Jamaica’s ‘pocket rocket’ Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce teamed up with lodging marketplace Airbnb to share a list of her most desired places to travel.
When the Olympic champion isn’t blazing down the track, she’s a passionate wife and mother who loves to spend time with her family and relax. “I feel grateful to be able to travel the world and to train in different places that allow me to experience different cultures. Since the training and competitions are so demanding, I always look forward to having some time off to travel with my family. Therefore, I created a wishlist that combines different destinations that inspire me to come visit and relax,” said Fraser-Pryce.
Travel like a world-class competitor to places like Mexico, and, of course, right here in Jamaica.
