Memorial Day Holiday 2009

  • I'm still celebrating Memorial Day!  In the home of the rat/rat town AKA Orlando, FL.  One of my favorite places to satisfy my Mickey collecting addiction.  T and I got in from the Bahamas via Port Canaveral yesterday morning after cruising since last Sunday.  We had a phenomenal time on the cruise.  It was our first time cruising, so didn't really know what to expect – it exceeded our expectations!
  • Visited Freeport and Nassau – Freeport was nice, however not a lot going on.  Nassau on the other hand, was fabulous.  The people of the Bahamas are extremely friendly and hospitable.   We had conch fritters – yum!
  • We did an excursion in Nassau where you go through trails and paths on a Segway, talking about a fun time!!! I initially thought I was going to have issues and was intimidated when I got my lesson before we started by the instructor because I couldn't get the balance thing down – but, after rolling around on the practice track for awhile I got the hang of it.  We were on them for two hours and by the end I was riding with no hands!  Our Segway excursion mates,  were two Carnival Cruise Line employees – She(from Serbia) was a information officer and he (from London) was one of the entertainment emcee – we had a blast with them!
  • I've taken over 400 photos so far and we have 2 more days until we return home.  Some highlights:

  1. dont you just love the Caribbean hehe

  2. OMG! The Segway thing seems so cool and fun! I would love to try that. I tend to avoid places where I think a hike would be required, but wow, on a Segway, that would be great. Was the path paved the entire way? Or could it go over rough terrain? I can't really tell from the photos; some parts look paved and some of it looks like gravel.

  3. I do Will, I really do 🙂

  4. Hey Teresa! The Segway was totally, totally awesome!!! The trails were unpaved – gravel, sand/dirt, rocks, wooden bridges etc. The Segways had the all terrain wheels. I want one now! If you ever get the opportunity to do an excursion on a Segway take it! I know in San Francisco (I was looking into take a vacation there) in Wine Country, there is a Segway tour.
