Happy Humpday folks!
Today was my first day back at work but it went by in a flash as I spent much of the time regaling my beloved coworkers with stories (good and bad) of my trip. Even though I had a fabulous time on vacation, it is always nice to return to a place where you feel loved and missed!
Anyways, I digress. To get back to my trip, I always find that I like to wake up early while on vacation. You open your eyes and feel like the day is full of opportunity and exciting adventures ahead; it's even better if you're up at 7 am and are ready to pack the day full of activities. On the cruise ship, we would wake up relatively early and head immediately to the "Windjammer Cafe" for a buffet breakfast (there were several other locations to have breakfast at, including Johnny Rockets and places serving food a la carte). Before we had our first meal, I forced the boyfriend to snap these shots on the "jogging deck"; the poor guy had to put up with my constantly harassing him to take pictures of me doing this or that during the trip.
As we ate so darn much on this trip, I made sure that I worked out at least a few times at the fitness centre-- it was also a mini-workout to walk up and down the staircases on the ship as we found that the elevators were often slow and full of other people too lazy to walk. Also, this wasn't one of those trips where we lazed around the entire day; we were constantly checking our watches and rushing here or there to get as much done as we could in the limited time we were allotted. As a result, the few times in which we did rest in our staterooms, usually after returning from an island excursion or after dinner, were treasured and often spent watching some random movie on the TNT channel.
I found that simple outfits like this romper were the perfect pieces to wear on this vacation as I wished to feel comfortable, cool, and casually stylish while walking around an island or the ship. Comfortable footwear were also must-have items; I packed two pairs of sandals as well as two pairs of heels, all of which were chosen for their degree of comfort and style. Additionally, I was glad that I brought two pairs of sunglasses as I quickly lost one pair while going down one particularly scary water slide at a resort in Nassau. When on vacation, always be prepared for the worst and you find yourself greatly relieved when you have packed for such emergencies.
On this particular morning, our ship had just anchored a few miles off the coast of Cococay Island; we would then take a boat to the island itself where we were free to snorkel, kayak, sun-bathe, and enjoy a delicious BBQ meal. I'll be sure to share about that amazing place in greater detail within a future post.

Looking back at my vacation pictures and reminiscing about those beautiful blue waters makes me really wish that I will still in the Bahamas sipping a fruity drink out of a coconut-- sadly, I am back in Vancouver where I am making up for my hefty expenditures by getting back to work. I hope that y'all are having a wonderful week as well and are enjoying some of those rays that we have been blessed with over the last few days.
I'd also like to know where would you like to go for your dream vacation? Would you like to visit somewhere tropical or just somewhere different from where you live?
