Celebrity Travel: Go Away With Stephen Marley

By Jae-Ha Kim, Tribune Content Agency on

A. In the countryside of Saint Ann in Jamaica. My father was born in Nine Mile, a district in the Saint Ann parish, so it holds a special place in my heart and in my childhood memories. The countryside is calming and filled with rivers and falls and is lush with a variety of plant life, (like) wisdom trees, fruit trees and flowers.

Q. If you've ever gone away for the holidays, which was the best trip?

A. My trip to Ethiopia was best. As a Rasta, there is a connection you feel the moment you hit the ground. This is the Land of Zion. The people, energy and country are so vibrant.

Q. Do you speak any foreign languages?

A. I speak a little Amharic, which is the official language of Ethiopia.

Q. What are your five favorite cities?


A. Addis Ababa (Ethiopia), Kingston, Miami, Los Angeles and Amsterdam.

Q. Where have you traveled to that most reminded you of home?

A. Africa. It is the Motherland, the foundation of life. Everything about Africa flows through the human race.

Q. Where would you like to go that you have never been to before?
