Packing Up....

Tomorrow my husband and I will be on our way to Jamaica! Before we jet off, I do have a funny little story to share...

We had decided to go to St. Lucia for our honeymoon last year and smartly planned to fly out on Monday rather than Sunday so we would have plenty of time to get to the airport 3 hours away. We spent the night in a nice hotel near the airport and got up in plenty of time to go through security.

After getting through the very long security line and checking our bags we decided to eat before we went to the terminal. BIG MISTAKE!!! We got to the terminal in plenty of time, but it seems as if it is first come, first serve. When you get to the ticket counter, they assign you your seat numbers, and unfortunately they overbooked the flight.
They had no seats for us.
I was almost in tears. What the crap was this airline thinking? Everyone was on their freaking honeymoon. No one is just going to skip out!

The bad news was there were no flights until the next day. We spent a few more hours at the airport getting things straightened out. Thankfully, we actually got a full refund on both of our tickets due to them not having a flight for 24 hours. They set us up in a hotel and we even called our resort and they were kind enough to extend our stay at no extra charge. Things were shaping up.

I believe the worst part of this experience was the next part. The hotel. I knew that they would set us up with a cheaper hotel. I'm was fine with that. I didn't expect the Ritz by any means and in fact when we walked in, the lobby looked perfectly fine. The room on the other hand was a different story. The shower was filthy and there was blood on the sink.
Yeah you read that right...blood.

We called the front desk and asked them to come clean and left for several hours to go grab dinner and get some other essentials since we were without our luggage for the night. We came back to an unclean room, but were too exhausted to do anything about it. Let's just say there definitely were not any honeymoon activities happening that night! I was way too utterly disgusted.

Thankfully the next day we were on our flight to St. Lucia where everything was wonderful! We had a great honeymoon with lots of fun excursions. I believe this time around we are just going to enjoy being lazy though and try to do as little as possible! Ahhh - Miami Vice - HERE.I.COME!

See you guys in a week! I do have a special post for tomorrow honoring our anniversary. Enjoy!

  1. Have a fantastic anniversary trip! We just got back from Puerto Rico where the beaches look just like that (and we stayed at the Ritz) :) I haven't been to Jamaica and so I hope you'll post a little bit about your trip when you get back. I'm very interested in what it is like to stay there and what there is to do there!


Comments make my day! Go ahead...get to typing. I want to hear from you.
