We made it! In one week I was able to scratch off three things on my bucket list.
Our first official week long vacation is now over, actually it was nine days total.
Around day four we were ready to come home, but being on a boat in the middle of the Caribbean kinda prevented that.
It took two days before I could even start relaxing, then I relaxed so much I got really sunburned even with PSF50 on. This is why my kind of people do not lay out and tan.
I finally set foot on foreign soil with the first being Jamaica, I got to be a tourist in the Caymans going from shop to shop, I swam in a cenote in Mexico where I also got to drive a buggy through the jungle, I got to see the most bluest of water and I got to eat like a king all week long.
The guilt didn't start setting in until the last day when we got our breakdown of charges and started adding up every expenditure for the entire trip. I was really disappointed with myself and the grand total. There are so many other things I could have used the money for to better our lives. Plus, if something goes wrong at the house and I don't have the money to fix it now, how can I justify what we did?
Don't get me wrong, I really enjoyed and am very thankful for getting away, spending time with the wife, seeing things I have only seen in the movies and doing things I have only heard of in other peoples stories.
I don't think I will ever do another seven day cruise again though. Maybe a three or four day would more suit my style.
All and all it was one heck of an experience. Been there, done that. Check it off the list.
On the way to New Orleans I stopped by a really neat little place I saw on Texas Country Reporter. I will post about it later, but I know you will be interested in it.
Other than that, it's good to be home.
