Back in town

I got back in town last night, and so will be blogging regularly again.

It was definitely a nice, relaxing vacation. I'd never been on a cruise before, and it's certainly different from the way I'm used to traveling. You're only in a port for 7 hours or so, so you don't get a chance to immerse yourself in the culture, get to know the area, etc. You end up spending most of your time being whisked to a particularly attraction or activity, or in the sheltered tourist ghetto. While this clearly has its downsides, it also forces you to relax, to not try to do much except chill on the beach or on the deck.

So it's not how I'd pick to go on most vacations, but it's great for when you need to be forced to relax and unwind. So it's good on occasion for people like me, who try to seize every opportunity (particularly opportunities for an interesting experience), and who consequently come back from vacation just as worn out as they left.
