Heading to Paris
16.01.2009 - 16.01.2009 60 °F
We left the ship and went to the airport. We hoped to check in and leave our bags, to get lunch on La Rambla before our flight (6 hours). They wouldn't take our luggage until 2 hours before the flight, so we just stayed at the airport. I bought something to color, candy and some trashy magazines that show Amy Winehouse's boobs. (That's not why I bought it, although I cant remember the reason now).
We are so sad the cruise is over. Once we got past the campiness of some of it, we really enjoyed it. And I have to say... Royal Caribbean is VERY organized. They turned that ship over in one day after all 3,000 of us left to take another 3,000 to the Canary Islands. Some guests from our cruise enjoyed themselves so much that they were trying to book that one to extend their vacation. We thought about it for a minute and then remembered our cats, jobs and bank accounts. We had a jolly laugh over that one, we did. (yeah, that was my attempt at a British accent. haha. Almost as good as my rendition of Careless Whispers in Rock-a-Rokie on Wednesday night. Tragic.)
I guess I have picked up some interesting phrases and words along the way. Mostly British things - our dinner table was Scottish, British and Irish. I suppose it was inevitable that us Americans would get picked on a little and I shouldn't have been so impatient with poor Margaret. She's sweet.
Off to Paris!
