The Vacation That Was, Part 3: Frieeennnddddssss

Sorry I haven't posted lately - it's been hard for me to log into my Blogger account for some reason. Stupid Google. Done with work, though, so I do now have some time on my hands, which is nice. Before school starts anyway.

Anyway, through the entire 10-day vacation, I did a lot of cool stuff. I saw bald eagles and seals, went kayaking in the glaciers, and just saw some overall amazing stuff. But the trip wouldn't have been half as amazing without the amazing people that I met there.

Y'see, there was sort of a "teen club" onboard the ship. Sounded a little cheesey, but I decided to give it a try. Very good decision. I made probably a dozen good friends on the ship, a few of which I think I'll stay in touch with for years to come.

It's hard to put into words, but I just met some overall awesome people. And throughout the ping pong tournaments scavenger hunts, wild dance parties, talent show, hot tubbing, and general coolness, we became better friends than you could ever expect from a weeklong cruise. I met people from all over the US, from California to Texas to Illinois. I also met a Briton, a Scot, an Aussie, and several Canadians. All were amazing. (Especially Joe, the Brit, and Hayden, the Aussie.)

So, this about concludes my vacation review. I hope you've almost sort of enjoyed. Now I can get back to my semi-regular blogging duties about things you might actually be interested.
