In my last post “Welcome to Miami”, I shared a few photos of Miami. What I didn’t tell you was that these photos were taken at the Miami Port. I was headed on a 7-day cruise!! Yes, I ‘ve been hiding that little gem for a while. 🙂
It was the most exhilarating and apprehensive feeling knowing that I was going on ginormous ship for 7 days to countries I have only seen on television, in magazines and other people’s photos… yes, I don’t get out much.:) Now before we get into the details of the trip, let me preface this post by stating that I get extremely seasick and always have since my first cruise at 9 years old with my parents. I vowed never to get on a ship ever again. Once again, at 22, I went on a smaller boat and decided to go to the highest deck and look over the side… I am sure you can finish that story :D. How did I arrive at the decision to take this adventure on? I wanted to engage with other cultures and learn about their history, discover new cuisines and capture as much on camera as possible.
So, here I am in the Port of Miami boarding the Carnival Glory and realizing this ship is where I will eat, sleep and party for the next 7 days while travelling to Mexico, Honduras and finally to the Grand Cayman Islands. Let the fun times begin!!
Now onto the photos!!!
Sayin’ goodbye to Miami….
