I’m Back… and not a single step to show for it!

By the time our plane landed at Holguin, we cleared Passport Control, Security, and had retrieved our luggage, waited for everyone else, and then endured the two hour drive to the resort it was going on 2:00am.  To use one of my favourite British slang terms, we were knackered.  Still and all, after we checked … Continue reading I’m Back… and not a single step to show for it!

Goodbye Vegas: A Friday Post :)

Thanks, I needed that. As I write this I am sitting on a plane outbound from Las Vegas. Aside from spending five marvelous days with great friends, I really needed the vacation.

Cruise Day 2: Key West

I cheated, I know. We docked in Key West this morning, and my cell phone announced the occasion loudly by chiming that I have e-mail, despite Roaming Data being turned off. As I waited for Theresa to get ready (I showered first) I looked at the e-mail quickly… there was only one that needed an … Continue reading Cruise Day 2: Key West

Caribbean Cruise: Day of Departure

As we left Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale, Florida I felt my hands shaking a bit. It had nothing to do with the rumbling of the engines of the Carnival Freedom, but rather the beginning of a long process of decompression and relaxation that I hope will be completed before we return to the same … Continue reading Caribbean Cruise: Day of Departure
