So today we will be getting aboard a one week cruise with Joya's family so The Gridbook Blog will be silent for a while. I'm not so sure what my feelings are about a pleasure cruise around the Caribbean. I'm pretty sure with my feelings on travel and America's use of the tropic I wouldn't have chosen to do this on my own, but I do love my in-laws and appreciated being invited. Hopefully it will be fun. I am curious how such a different experience the Caribbean will affect me.
