spring breakers

Tuesday, April 5, 2016

Oh how I wish spring break could be a month long, but sadly it isn't and I had to come home. The good news is, I can finally blog again without paying an outrageous price for wifi. Here I am, back in the freezing cold state of Michigan, sitting in my hoodie and jeans, and blogging about paradise. 


Let me set the scene for you before we begin the story of my spring break. We're on the Carnival Conquest, full of people from all places. We have two and a half days at sea and three days at port, each day is different and wonderful. Okay now that I have set the scene, let us begin. 


Our first stop was the beautiful Grand Turk, where a few of my friends and myself went atving. After atving, we went to the beach and hung out there for the day. The water at Grand Turk was clear as could be, but also a very nice turquoise color. I was shocked at just how beautiful an island, that I have never heard of, could be. 



Our next stop was the Dominican Republic, which I loved the most out of all three ports. I felt so much love and hope for the country and it's people, that I would love to go on a mission trip there in the near future. 


Our entire time in the Dominican, we were on a sailboat catamaran. The catamaran was a such a blast; we went snorkeling, sailing, ate a wonderful lunch, met some new friends, and I even got to dance the merengue! 


A lot of our new friends were workers on the catamaran that made our time in the Dominican Republic as fun as could be! 



After the Dominican Republic, we went to Half Moon Cay. Half Moon Cay is an island in the Bahamas that is exclusively owned by Carnival. 


Half Moon Cay didn't have that many excursions to choose from, so we just went to the beach all day long. Although Half Moon Cay was absolutely beautiful, it was not my favorite port that we went to. 




I hope you all had/will have a fantastic spring break!! As papo (our friend from DR) would say, "Happy, happy!" 


xoxo, Aubs
