By the time you read this blog, I'll be gone...
On vacation that is.
Raphael and I are taking a 15 day Princess Cruise to Central & South America through the Panama Canal and stopping in Mexico, Panama, Costa Rica, Columbia, Aruba and up to Florida. I booked a bunch of adventurous land excursions too from zip lining to hiking in the rain forest to sailing and snorkeling above a shipwreck. I can't wait!!
This is our fifth cruise together. Yes, we are cruise people. I grew up going on cruise vacations with just my father during spring breaks, I then got Raphael into it when we were dating and went on an Alaskan cruise. I'm sure it helped that we got engaged on that particular trip, but we both love that transportation, room and meals are all included and that you can visit other cities and countries easily without having to pack and unpack and head to the airport again. This was especially advantageous when we went on Princess' Scandinavian cruise and visited 7 countries in 10 days with two nights in St. Petersburg, Russia. (You can read about my past cruise adventure and see video from: Russia and Estonia) Cruising is also very indulgent and with Princess Cruises it isn't a tacky booze cruise either.
While I'm away I'll try and post from an internet cafe if possible, otherwise I did schedule a couple of posts to go up while at sea even a giveaway that is scheduled to run tomorrow. So, please please come and check back later so my website traffic doesn't completely disappear for the month of January and ruin my nice statistics.
