Vacation at Last

Bryan and I just got back last night from a week cruising the Caribbean. It was the ultimate lazy vacation. I highly recommend Royal Caribbean to everyone. I still have my sea legs and am hoping to adjust soon.

Here are some of the highlights from the trip:
-I slept 12 1/2 hours the first night on the cruise and generally 9 hours each subsequent night
-We saw a mongoose and many iguanas in the wild
-We received $800 in airplane vouchers, meal vouchers and first class upgrades on our subsequent flight home for voluntarily accepting a bump due to overbooking...totally worth the wait.
-We played a 9-hole miniature golf course on the cruise ship
-We went zip lining under the canapy of trees in the jungle. One of the zip lines was a free fall with a counter balance at the bottom and one of the zip lines was 600 feet long. It was amazing even though we looked like geeks with our helmets.
-We went hiking in the forests around the Mayan ruins

I checked my work email halfway through the trip, but it still didn't prepare me for the backlog of work today. I felt hunger today for the first time in a week. I forgot what that felt like with the round-the-clock food on the cruise. Back to reality!

Your vacation looks amazing. I can't wait to go on our cruise to compare notes. I am glad that you two are back safely.
