A Cruise Wouldn’t Be Complete Without Seasickness

March 8, 2015

Hey friends,

All I can say, is that those last few days of our Carnival Cruise, I was so thankful I don’t get seasick easily. It wasn’t the smoothest ride ever, that’s for sure. Not as bad as the boat ride to Tobago by any means, but not a cakewalk either. You’ll see…

Little Known Fact: Cancun is Freaking Hot in August!

Ok, ok, I know this is probably going to sound like a “well duh” moment, but I’ll go ahead and put it out there. When we went down to Cancun, Mexico just a short time ago for what’s become an annual beach trip, it was unbelievably hot! I mean sweating-just-sitting-outside-not-moving-hot. Shocker, right?

Hello, fruity drinks.
