The final leg of our Caribbean cruise adventure landed the Carnival Horizon at the port of Cozumel.  My husband was looking forward to the Cozumel stop, because he’d been there before.  The night before, he animatedly told me, “Make sure your camera is ready!  Cozumel is a beautiful port!”  It had been about ten years since he had last been to Cozumel, and he was excited to see it again. But, we never went to Cozumel, although the ship docked there.  Instead, we boarded a water taxi that took us across to Playa de Carmen. Playa de Carmen was still […]

Grand Cayman (Caribbean Cruise 3/4)

Over the last couple Saturdays I’ve discussed a little about our latest cruise adventure to the Caribbean.  Last week, I shared Jamaica, where my husband I went zip lining, river tubing, and waterfall jumping.  The week before I introduced you to our ship, the Carnival Horizon. Today, I’m going to talk a little bit about port #2 – Grand Cayman. The Cayman Islands were first discovered in about the 17th century – and in this case, I do mean discovered as there didn’t appear to be previous indigenous inhabitants prior to settlers.  Originally claimed by pirates, deserters, and the shipwrecked, the […]

Good morning my loves! Today marks the first in a series of four about my adventures on the Carnival Horizon and my trip into the Caribbean! This was actually my first time in the Caribbean – my husband and I went to Bermuda for our honeymoon, but Bermuda is actually in the Atlantic ocean, so this is officially the furthest south I’ve ever been! As some of you may know, I tend to pre-schedule my posts, so let me tell you about where I am as I’m writing this. It’s 6:25am and we’re in the middle of the Caribbean en […]

Transatlantic Cruise: Iceland (8/8)

Transatlantic Cruise: Iceland (8/8)

Hello my loves. Today is the final – the very last – entry about my Transatlantic Cruise from April.  It was the adventure of a lifetime.  It was exhausting.  It was spectacular.  If you ever have the opportunity to tour Europe – even just a small piece of it – I urge you to go.  It’s a stunning place, filled with levels of history that you have to see to truly understand.  The people are lovely, the buildings are lovelier, and British food is the best. Go. All that said, I feel wholeheartedly that Iceland is the most beautiful place on […]
