Why not travel?

It all started with a one word question, "why?"  My friend and I were having a discussion about travelling.  You see, before we had kids, there’s nothing Dave and I liked to do more than plan a vacation, hop on board a plane and spend as much time as possible running around frantically to see every site the city has to offer.  No town was too mundane for us; we would immerse ourselves in the culture as much as possible so our adventure would feel more authentic than touristy.  So when I told my friend that there is no possible way Dave and I could travel the way we love to, and we were bound to stay at home for the foreseeable future because our kids are toddlers.  He was quiet for a moment then asked me, "Why!" Well that one question sparked a fire in our wandering spirit and before you know it, all the grandparents literally moved into our house to spend quality time with their grandkids. We were shuffled into a taxi, boarded a plane, hopped on a boat, and in two shakes of a rabbit tail we were cruising the high seas. 

We decided to do the Southern Caribbean Cruise on the Celebrity Summit.  It was departing from San Juan, Puerto Rico then going on to St. Croix, U.S.V.I.; Basseterre, St. Kitts; Roseau, Dominica; St. George’s, Grenada; Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas and then ending in San Juan, Puerto Rico.  And let me tell you epic readers, it was seven days of elegance, relaxation, fun and adventure. 

Starting tomorrow, I will be publishing a new series of posts called Travel Tuesdays with Epic Mom.  This project will commence over the next few weeks and will hopefully brighten up your winter days, get you excited about spring break and have you dreaming about the summer.  I will be reviewing the Southern Caribbean Celebrity Summit Cruise, and through posts, photographs and vlogs, it will be like you were practically there yourselves.  So grab a Pirates Punch and let’s hoist off on an epic adventure in the Caribbean.
