Going Home – Honeymoon Day 14

November 13, 2007 By: erik Category: Complaining, Photos, Travel

Don't call me stumpy!The sun was shining early, so Marga and I got up at 7:00 to have breakfast and spend a few more minutes on a Caribbean beach before packing up the suitcases. We used the morning to take a walk around the hotel and snap some condemning photos to show our travel agent when we got back home. Pretty disgusting, all of it.

Swimming With Dolphins – Honeymoon Day 12

ren164We had a relaxed cloudy morning by the pool. We got up at 9:45, way later than any other morning of our honeymoon. Breakfast was crap, as usual. Marga was feeling a little ill, so lying down for a bit was good for her. We took a little walk down a street we haven’t been to yet and found some more garbage-filled poverty. For lunch, we found a secret lid covering some slices of pizza. As in school cafeterias growing up, the pizza is by far the best thing that the chefs can manage to make for a large number of people. It was way better than anything else we’ve eaten here, the previous evening excluded. At 1:15, we were waiting for the van to take us to swim with the dolphins.

Cruise AmigosWe were told to have our luggage packed and leave it outside our cabin in the hallway before going to bed the night before. This seemed rather ridiculous when we woke up the next day and realized that we didn’t hit land until noon. But oh well. We had breakfast and spent some time out on deck lying on chairs. At 1:30 PM we had to meet in the main lounge to go through Venezuelan immigration and get grouped by hotel for our further stay. There was a lot of bored waiting, and we were finally loading our suitcases onto a bus by 2:15 PM.
