    Thank you @Richard Alpert ! And @tringlomane and @Syringe Monkey and @ardee !

    It's been a blast so far! We had Barbados today which is a pretty nice island. M and I visited the Andromeda Botanical Gardens and did the Mt. Gay rum tasting - without paying the excursion time or price. It was awesome.

    Pics and stories to follow once I'm on actual wifi it's a good fuckin' day!

    Also got an email for another job phone interview! Which I had to schedule for after this week of bliss, but yay!

    Also....the focaccia pizza is really tasty and you can't beat free!

    Today we are in St. Lucia and it is fucking gorgeous, dudes (that's the California coming out, I've been away too long hahaha)!!!!

    We took a drive with a nice gal named Nancy to Pigeon Island (hmm see the trend?). The rainforest was too far, so this was our best bet. For 4hrs on the island, we'll take it! We got a cool tour of the island from Nancy, who lives 10mins from Casteries.

    Pigeon Island is near a fishing town, and every Friday features a fish fry and good food for locals and tourists alike! She said it is great!

    Pigeon Island is cool, but I want more tropical animals! We've seen a ton of birds and cute little lizards though, and stopped in at a cute cafe by the Caribbean Sea for lunch!! They have 2 for 1 drinks and a kitty cat wandering the grounds.

    The pic I am trying to attach is a lizard and his fruit snack. Don't be jealous. :) PSX_20190210_132834.jpg

    I think I can add at cat photo before we leave. I got to pet 'm and we were friends. :)

    Now M and I are at an art auction!! I think it's real informative on different artists and art styles for someone that is just drawn to birdie pictures and stuff (and cats and food and landscapes but hey).

    We did not pay extra for the balcony upgrade; we're inside the middle of the boat - no windows, but a fabulous bed,super cozy and comfy, plus nightstands, dresser/desk with a mini fridge, and a decent sized closet and our bathroom. Not as tiny as I envisioned, and quite comfortable! I did mention today though that an upgrade might be worth it on like a 20-day cruise. We're not in the room that much and when we are, we are sleeping in the comfy bed or.... doing other things. ;) Haha.

    This has been a great trip so far! Billions of pictures to follow at the end!

    When you are in the bahamas, are you going to Atlantis, instead of buying the daily pass, its pretty easy to get a room if you are Caesars Diamond. You should be able to get a casino rate at least. You probably need to do it before you arrive though.

    St. Thomas was amazing! We did a morning snorkel with the best fucking company - VI Cat or bust! :) We saw so many sea turtles, fishes and rays!

    Alright guys! We are unfortunately off the boat and headed to the Florida airport to drop our luggage. Our flight doesn't leave till 3:00p, but we also have a layover in Houston for dinner.

    Pic spam and the follow up to this TR later tonight or this weekend! :)
