Well I’m about to head out on yet another journey. This journey I take at least twice a year. I’m sort of a cruise addict – I travel the same cruise line, same ship, stay in the same room, drink at the same bar…I know what I love!
Last fall I was lucky enough to travel with my friend, Donna which was the first time I had cruised with anyone and it was super fun. That sailing had a goal, which I failed. I was supposed to grieve the loss of my ex-boyfriend but I kind of ended up having too much fun to do that. Huh…go figure.
This voyage will be a little different. The Carnival Breeze is scheduled to pull out of the Port of Miami at 4:00 pm on Saturday. It rarely happens that we are escorted through the channel on time but the point is, I can always tell exactly where we are at sea by looking at the very large screen inside that pinpoints our exact location. I will use this feature to determine when we will be passing Cuba (which is where my guy is stationed currently.) There’s a spot on deck 10 that I’ve never seen anyone before and it’s where I walk to at night as it has the best view of the stars. As we slowly pass Cuba, it will be there that I will quietly whisper any last words I might have for him and then go back down to the sail away party…not to think of him again. I don’t know how many times I have to say goodbye to this man for goodbye to really mean what it should. But I do know that with no contact until he returns home will be the real thing because by then, my new life will have already started. That’s when he’ll realize what he lost.
Back to the fun stuff…where am I even going…? St. Kitts, St. Maarten, San Juan and Grand Turk. MY FAVORITES! The most beautiful beaches, the history, the RUM, the people…everything. I never take pictures and I absolutely should but it just seems like I have seen everything so often I don’t think of it.
I can’t wait to see what sort of trouble I can find on this trip…..stay tuned! 🐬☀️💞✈️⚓️👙
Light & Love,
