Back from Vacation {Cruise Photos}

For our birthdays, Brad and I took a much-needed vacation… a Western Caribbean cruise.

This was cruise number six for us. It was originally supposed to be a couples’ winter escape. Our decision to take this trip was actually made while sitting in a winery in Madison with our friends in November. Tickets were booked and we were planning our escape when our friends found out that they are expecting (yay!). They weighed the risks and decided to do what is best for them and their baby and cancelled the trip. Every place on our travel itinerary had a CDC travel warning about Zika for pregnant women. Whenever you travel, double check no only the security warnings about your destination, but also the health warnings.

So Brad and I went by ourselves. It was incredible and relaxing. It was nice to get away from winter for a little while. I have a few pictures from our trip to share with you. Enjoy!

Docked in Mexico

Oasis of the Seas

I feel like we take fewer pictures each cruise we go on. Part of that is because we’re less in awe of where we are and what we’re doing and more engaged with where we are and what we’re doing. We also don’t have as many pictures when we cruise solo because we don’t have anyone to take pictures with or of us.

I’ll be posting about the things you should pack for a cruise that you may not think of soon, I’ll also have a post over on DiabetesMine answering questions about diabetes and cruising. There’s a brief post about that already from a couple years ago here.
