Photo Diary.

A collection of random photos captured during my winter holiday.















I did not know what to expect with a family winter holiday that spanned over 10 days in the Caribbean, as well as Florida, but I have to admit that it was definitely a relaxing, memorable, and sun-soaked vacation. The holiday started off with a whirlwind adventure that consisted of a bit of a hitch to get everyone to Florida in time for the cruise departure, but luckily everything worked out. Who knew that a 7-day cruise could go by so quickly. After visiting so many different islands in such a short period of time, I now know that I need to come back and visit for a longer span of time. A day spent at Saint Martin, Saint Thomas and Nassau were definitely jam-packed with me wishing that we were able to spend more time at each place. Imagine a group of inexperienced kayakers attempting to kayak for the first time at Saint Martin. Yes, somehow a bit of chaos turned into sheer entertainment. Luckily, everyone started off in a lagoon, and eventually got the hang of things. This was definitely a moment that I wish I had captured on camera. On another note, I came across this delicious Belgian chocolate shop that had an array of delicious coconut chocolates to choose from. And no, Jeff de Bruges chocolates were not available in the Caribbean, but a thoughtful family member was nice enough to bring me a box of them all the way from Paris. Thank-you! I attempted to snorkel in Saint Thomas, but I had to come to a too-late and unfortunate conclusion that sailboats and I do not get along. After 7 days spent on a cruise, I somehow garnered enough energy to head to Universal Studios for 2 days of pure juvenile fun. An exhaustingly fun holiday? Yes! Am I missing the warmness of the Caribbean sun? More than you could imagine...

What amazing photos of your cruise! I've always wanted to go and now even more so thanks to your photos and the cold where I'm at right now. I've never been a big fan of snorkeling. I've been curious about scuba diving but honestly, I've become too big a chicken. Too many sharks and jellyfish spottings for me to be brave enough to go really deep any more.
