It’s been a while since my last post but, I’ve been on holiday. 🙂 Yup! Took my first cruise!
Flew to New Orleans and boarded the Norwegian Cruise Line ship: “Norwegian Spirit”.
Our first stop was in Costa Maya, Mexico where we visited the Mayan ruins. Next was Rotan, Bay Islands, Honduras and we went snorkeling and visited Gumbalimba Park to see monkeys, parrots, and iguanas. Our third day was in Belize City, Belize. A hike through the rain forest and cave tubing was a blast! The last destination was Cozumel, Mexico for a beach day!
We extended the trip for a couple days so we could enjoy New Orleans. A beautiful city with loads of history, Southern food, and believe it or not…Corkscrews! I was able to hit up several antique galleries, shops, and malls in record time! I can honestly say that there was definitely more corkscrews in New Orleans than I’ve ever seen before within a city limits. It’s probably due to their high asking prices that have lead to the high concentration or piling up of screws in the shops. Oh well… At least I enjoyed the Blackened Alligator, Turtle Soup, Fried Pickles, and Crawfish Cakes. Good stuff!!
Seriously time to get back on track as I have still not made it to the score board for the 2011 BIN Contest! Refresh! Refresh! Refresh!!!
