Grown up girls cruise?

Ok, so I am taking my 19 year old daughter on our very first mother daughter cruise together. We have to get all our clothes into 1 piece of luggage and 2 carry-ons. That might be a miracle in itself. Just her and I. I WAS looking forward to warm weather and reading and maybe even a little spa...What was I thinking? She has us hitting the clubs (does she not know I am approaching 50?) She is talking about dancing all night ad being a goof at the clubs...I will be happy to make it past She showed me her clubbing outfit and I asked her where the rest was. She asked what I was wearing, and I told her Omar the tent maker made my outfit and not to worry. I will let you guys imagine the face she made :) We are just doing a 4 night cruise on the RCCL Navigator of the Seas and only 6 days to go. Our only port of call is Cozumel, Mexico and we are doing an independent excursions to Mr Sancho's beach, where we have all you can eat food and drink, our own umbrella and lounge chairs for the day. Now if only a hot sexy Cabana boy brought those drinks this mom would be happy ;)I will definitely let you guys know how that was. I love Cozumel and want to come back to an all inclusive. So, here is my dilemma, I am going to drink with my daughter. That scares the heck out of me. This will be an interesting trip. There will be pictures...

So...This will be a travel blog from now on...

Here, I will blog about things pertaining to travel. Our own travel experiences, funnies, stories and anything else that you may just find entertaining. Or then again maybe you will just think I am insane, either way as long as you follow and not have me committed, I am fine with it.

So, today I was thinking of how we are driving to Orlando in February. Yes, I am sure you are thinking, but don't they live in Massachusetts, and isn't the weather bad that time of year? Oh yes, that is snowy, icy, Cold Miester making winter icicles type of weather. Maybe I wasn't thinking about the actual getting there as much as I was the being on a cruise ship heading to the Caribbean with a fruity drink in my hand. Can't you just picture that in your mind right now?

So, what lead me to make the decision to drive? We did it last July and it was a great time. Three 13 year olds, my friend Judy and ,myself, and we made it in under 24 hours (of course we went the speed limit ;) )Of course just in case it got nasty I had the emergency Benadryl! I remember what a blast that was and forgot about the time of year. Hey, I am allowed moments of senility! I am getting up there in age, you know :)

So, we will be going as far away from route 95 South as possible. We will be going 81 and 77 and a few other highways tossed in there too....Hopefully we will make our ship on Saturday Feb 13th in Miami. Wish us luck!!!

I will be posting about getting ready for our trip. Packing lists, car preparations, kids comments....Anything travel related that comes up and whatever you guys want to talk about that has to do with travel. I may end up talking to myself most of the time, but heck I find myself quite entertaining....Later gators!

because today's vacations are tomorrow's memories!
