I could be biased but a Travel Agency is one of the happiest places to work. Everyone is in a great mood because one of the most popular and fun activities is being planned. Someone is travelling somewhere. How good is that?!! In this case it’s a story of a young lady travelling to South America.
I clearly remember this day because of the emotions that came up for me not to mention the story itself.
Unlike my the dramatic emotions and physical re-action to the fear that I had when I thought about travelling to Bali, this was different because it was emotions that I experienced for her.
When you first try something that’s foreign to you and completely out of your comfort zone, sometimes you can be overcome with fear. You’re terrified and to the point that you have second thoughts.
And, it was only a few hours earlier, you were fine with at but at the last moment something changed.
Have you ever had that feeling? I have a few times and it’s scary. But if others are doing it you know, that you’re probably not going to die. Right?
My story starts in the Cayman Islands where I was on a Caribbean cruise and we were docked at Grand Cayman so with multiple choices as to what to do for the day, apart from visiting Margaritaville, I opted to take a half day trip to swim with the Stingrays.
Why not! They’re beautiful creatures that don’t have teeth and these ones didn’t seem to harm humans either so what could go wrong?
What a quirky little town and a great place for a long weekend! And while it was a layover (between 2 cruises) we just larved the time there and would like to go back and explore the region more. I’m sure a long weekend in Key West would be a regular trip for Floridians. It would be for us.
From Miami, Florida it’s a 3-hour drive straight down the motorway which is soo easy for visitors like us that are used to driving on the other side of the road. 😊 And easy for independent travelers to navigate this region as it leads down an archipelago of islands to the end at Key West. Simple!
On the drive, the most interesting of time was spent crossing from key to key, not knowing what to expect after enjoying water views from the long spans of connected bridges. Constantly I was reminded of the movie ‘True Lies’ with Jamie Lee Curtis and ‘Big Arnie’ as there was some great footage of this road in the movie.
