Whew! I’ve been gone for a while because I went on a cruise! And a bunch of other stuff happened too.
We lost two days (i.e. we departed 2 days late) because of Tropical Storm Lee, so we didn’t get to go to Belize or Honduras. (It turned into a “Mexican booze cruise” according to one post on a discussion board.) There were a couple additional major stressors that happened just before and while we were on the boat. And on the last day of the cruise, I ended up in bed with the flu. (That made my “vacation” even longer since I missed two days of work when we got back.)
It’s like the universe was trying to tell us not to go on vacation — and we totally ignored the universe and went anyway! Ha! Take that, universe!
(I’m just kidding, universe. Please give us a break for a little while.)
But despite the delay and the health issues, we did have a good time exploring the boat, visiting Costa Maya and Cozumel, and spending time with 5 of my best friends from college.
In Costa Maya, the whole group hired a taxi who took us to see the Chacchoben Mayan ruins and to swim in a cenote. In Cozumel, Jose and I went snorkeling at Palancar Reef. Both port stops were lots of fun.
I didn’t take a ton of photos, but I will post a few more tomorrow.
