Cabin Fever - Part II

OK, a while back I wrote about suggested therapy to beat the winter blahs. I'd now like to add another suggestion to the list: GO SOUTH!

Just got back from a Carribean cruise last week and it was sweet. Lots of sun, exotic island, good food... and plenty of boat drinks! Ah yes, boat drinks. For some reason they only taste good when you have them on a boat; try to mix up some tropical fruit juice with rum at home and serve it up in a pineapple... it just doesn't work.

Spent eleven days on the beautiful Celebrity Constellation that took us to ports of call ranging from the beautiful (Grand Cayman) to the downright messy (Colòn). However, each different port had wonderful locals to meet and new cultures to discover. We also made new friends on the boat, both fellow travellers and crew members.

My only regret: didn't get to rent a motorcycle!

Wow, that is really neat. You must post some pictures of the trip. It has to be gorgeous.

Yeah, I've been meaning to get around to posting a few pics... but work has been hectic since I got back. Argh! I guess that's the price you've got to pay for taking two weeks off?

no no...the price you have to pay for taking two weeks off is having to come back to lots of snow. ;) glad to hear you got out of here for a while. sounds like it was a great trip!
