Vacation

So, finally back from vacation. Did I have a good time? Shrugs. Cozumel is a great place. I visited there several years ago when hubby and I did a cruise.

 

Our resort was all inclusive. Drinks and eats free, lots of activities, etc. It was ok. Nothing wonderful, but clean, nice folks, and our room and view was to die for. We got up, sat on our balcony and watched the cruise ships dock every morning. The pool and pool bar was right below us. So, that was a plus.

 

We met a lot of nice people and several of them flew with us from Atlanta. It was quite a group. I know this sounds like an older person bitching,but we got a wake up call that was very disappointing. A large American Coast Guard vessel docked, and the crew stayed a couple of days at our resort. A couple of the crew members were an embarassment to U.S. Military. They were ridiculous. The Captain of the vessel finally saw the antics going on and put a stop to them. Other members of the crew were totally embarassed. There was a lot of great young people in the crew. We talked to several of them.

 

No internet access:( There was supposedly availability in the lobby. Nope. I went down there to buy a card and use their computers. No service. I had no phone service. I'd put a couple of hundred international mins. on my phone before I left. No use. By the third day, my best friend had a lot of texts on her phone. She finally got service when we went into Cozumel. It was our families frantic because they'd seen where a tropical storm was close to us. My hubby was frantic.

 

When we got ready to board our flight home, I went throught two searches before I boarded in Cozumel. One of them even swabbed my hands and feet along with a wealthy man sitting beside me in the airport. We both did fine until I got home, and was missing many items from my luggage. They'd taken our luggage to another area to search it. I was furious. Of course, Delta can't do a damn thing, so I'm just out of my money.

 

Got into Atlanta at 5 p.m. Monday afternoon. Had a six hour layover. That sucked. I made it home at Two in the morning and was at work by six. Still trying to catch up on my rest. I've taken work home with me everyday this week.

 

So, all, if I've neglected my duties here , please forgive me. I'll try to be in full GA mode by Monday. I've missed the lot of you and all of your funny and helpful posts. Be good, and I really did miss each and everyone of my friends here, and to my writers I beta for, hope I can get back on track soon.

Welcome back! One of the reasons we travel is to better appreciate home... which i've done vicariously through your post! At least you weren't abducted and held for ransom by drug lords:P We would all have passed the sombrero around and collected the necessary funds...

Glad you're back.  Sorry about the theft from your luggage but glad the trip was a good one overall.  Hope you at least have the weekend off of work to fully recover from the traveling.

Having no internet or phone service in this day and age is not acceptable in a modern resort, no matter the location, unless you are specifically looking for one without those amenities.

 

The stuff stolen from your suitcase reinforces the rule to never take things on vacation that you cannot do without.  Lost luggage overseas happens more often than people realize. 

 

We're just glad to get you back and hoping you have some pictures to post to show off that fabulous view!
