Cruising the Caribbean

This trip is one of my favorites and always will be! It was so much fun and I got to see many wonderful places with my family. This ticked a few countries off my “see all the countries of the world” list.

We left out of Miami, which is somewhere I would like to go back to someday to see more of the city. I guess I have a thing for palm trees. 🙂

Day 1

We saw a bit of the ship, and there was a parade to kick off the voyage.

Disneyland Dreaming

My first big trip and first time on a plane was to Disneyland in California. This is a true family vacation destination, and my family had an amazing time! It’s such a dreamy place and I’m an adrenaline junkie, so I rode every ride that I could. I was only 9 years old, but I rode a lot of rides by myself when my family was too chicken to come with me!

I hadn’t been on an airplane since 2011, so it was cool to see the teeny tiny things of the world again. Nevada had cool, circular agricultural plots – it was neat to see the different ways we ag in different climates. (Excuse my ag geekery.) The mountains were their typical beautiful and majestic selves, and I love me some clouds.

We flew early on a Sunday morning, so then we had all day to explore. My parents had been to the city twice before, but there was still a lot they hadn’t seen, so it was great that we got to do that together. I had done quite a lot of searching on Google before we went, so I had a list of things I really wanted to see and do. (Spontaneity clearly isn’t really my thing…)
