Welcome back to reality
I shouldn't wait another 8.5 years to go on vacation. Man, i had a great time - seven days of living in a warm, sunny, rum-soaked, Caribbean dream. The food was great, the entertainment was great, the weather was (mostly) great, the ports were great, the activities were great, the staff was great, the ship was great - everything was great. Join me over the next week as i relive my vacation here at the Nikiverse : see 5 star food, meet some of the crew, discover how you ride an underwater scooter. The flip side of having a truly wonderful vacation is coming home and adjusting to reality. Maryland didn't want me to endure a long adjustment period so on Saturday i left the boat in Port Canaveral, drove to Orlando and flew home where the weather was foggy, misting and 52 degrees. Yikes! Twelve hours after i arrived at my apartment i had to be at work at the antique store and this is what it looked like outside my front door as i left : welcome home?
