can i go back... pleeease??

We ended our super long travel day yesterday afternoon. And after almost 21 hours of travel and just a couple of hours of bad airplane sleep, I was ecstatic to finally sleep in my own bed last night. But... I would give anything to go back. Oh, to feel the gentle rocking of the giant cruise ship... to be able to sleepily wander to huge breakfast buffet in the morning... to sit for hours undisturbed in a seaside lounge chair... only to get up to snap a few photos of the whales that were just spotted... to actually finish a book... to get dressed up for dinner... to see shows and productions any and every night... to explore gorgeous towns and cities that I never thought I would see... to see mountains and snow under the hot summer sun... Oh, to go back...

I don't even know where to start. How does one sum up 10 days (and 500 photos) of absolute bliss into a little measly post? And even more difficult... how to do it without making you hate me? A tough challenge. One that I will attempt to tackle tomorrow. Until then... it's laundry, emails, moving, and work... ugh... real life.

I can't wait to hear all about it! No one is going to hate you, but I can't say I won't be ridiculously jealous! Glad you had an amazing time. Good to have you back. :)

We won't hate you. At least I definitely won't! I just want to live it vicariously through you. I cannot WAIT to see pictures (but maybe not all 500! :D ) Glad you had such a good time. It's good to have you back, Julia! :)
