Growing up in Jamaica we often heard our parents scold persons, especially children, who habitually or too frequently left home to visit neighbors or unusual places. These persons were referred to as Walkbouts, suggesting they were nosey, restless and wandering.
Jamaicans are also known for traveling extensively and it is said, you can find a Jamaican in the most remote parts of the world.
It was against this background that Walkbout was conceptualized and masterminded by Jamaican Aldo Antonio in 2008. Walkbout International and walkbout.com were conceptualized with the ultimate goal to create a global community of Jamaican and foreign adventurers or “Walkbouts” who share a common yearning for exploration of the inner workings of global locations. Visitors or as we call ourselves Walkbouts, seeking that unforgettable, authentic cultural experience, off the beaten path to quirky places, people and activities beyond commercially popular venues can now do so through the portal http://www.walkbout.com.
Walkbout International is a member of the Blackslate Holdings Group Limited operating out of “Silicon Mountain – The Business Technology and Innovation Hub of the Caribbean” Mandeville Manchester Jamaica.
