Wow.. It’s been kind of quiet over here for the last few weeks. I’m having a hard time writing this time of year for some reason. Lack of ideas? Or the fact that I’m thoroughly enjoying some time off to unplug from the business (other then emails) and re-charge.
With that said I was on an Eastern Caribbean cruise last week and there was a couple that had gotten married in Miami before we had even left port. They were taking their portraits on the Lido deck and I adored watching them & made me SO excited for the 2015 season!
Back on track, Cait. I wanted to share a little bit of my vacation here with you all and kind of a shameless plug for Carnival Cruise Lines. I absolutely adore cruises. I feel they give you the best bang for your buck but also have great entertainment, fantastic food, and most importantly give you the opportunity to travel!
This cruise we (The fam bam and I) traveled to San Juan, Puerto Rico – St. Thomas – & Carnival’s private island, Half Moon Cay.
San Juan was my personal favorite. The cobble stone streets, the bright colors, the beautiful architecture.. I adored it and would LOVE to go and spend a greater amount of time there. We visited the Gibraltar of the Caribbean which was pretty cool and I’m not much of a history buff. Most importantly it’s home of the original Pina Colada.. Too bad I’m more of a daiquiri girl myself.
St. Thomas wasn’t exactly what I expected and I felt like House Hunters International glorified it a bit albeit it was beautiful. Don’t get me wrong.. The views, water, and hillside is absolutely amazing. But the actual “town” of it wasn’t something that I really loved. We opted to leave town and took a two hour island open bus tour which was amazing. Soaking up fresh air with some amazing views and a few scary drives past semi’s (uhhh driving on the wrong side of the road is terrifying!) it was worth the money. I definitely preferred the “backside” of the mountain as it was less commercial and more home town feeling.
