Sail Into the Memories: Vacation High Points

What’s in my cup? Vacation! After returning from my cruise, I found myself once again wondering why I don’t make more time for relaxation.

If you need some time away from it all, a cruise might be just the answer. It’s a chance to recharge your batteries in solitary splendor in perfect hideaways. I had some thoughts while I was sailing, and here they are:

  1. First and foremost, I really like my time spent working I know it’s vacation and self-care time. But I love what I do. I love creating and being inspired by the environment and people around me. So much so that doing it makes me feel rested. While I did not spend the whole time doing “work,” I allowed myself moments to do the parts of work that make me feel good. So no checking emails, but taking time to create.
  2. Secondly, I have a passion for eating (tea especially). Through my stomach, I discover the world. To some extent, the cruise’s lack of variety dampened my enthusiasm for the trip, but I still had a blast sampling the ship’s many eateries. Unfortunately, the tea was the biggest letdown, but I made Lipton work by adding lemon and honey. The many shore excursions prevented me from trying the local fare, but that’s just another reason to return to Bermuda soon.
  3. Highlight number three is; connecting with loved ones is a must. The fact that you’ll be spending so much time with your loved ones makes a cruise the perfect setting for bonding. Even though I was concerned we wouldn’t last the whole week; we had a blast establishing new memories and laughing more than we have in a long time.

After returning from my cruise, I was disappointed to learn that I would have to prepare my own meals and sleep in my own bed once again. But now, I can see that I gain more from the experience than I give up. In this way, my spirit is revived as I leave. Love, laughter, and memories fill my heart as I leave. If I were, to sum up my thoughts on this blog, I would say that the most valuable takeaway is vacation isn’t about the regret of what did or didn’t happen but what is gained: the people and experiences that enrich one’s life. Where is your next vacay?
