Our "seats" at the bartender show
Todd & his free martini
Todd & I (yes, I'm a sucker for a frozen drink)
This was about halfway through the cocktail hour...what can I say....it was free!
After our cocktail hour and final formal dinner, Todd & I went back to our room to pack up our luggage. We had to have it outside our door by 11:00 PM because the cruise staff unloads your luggage for you the next day. Our plans were to go to the farewell show but the weather had other plans. The wind had gradually become worse throughout the day and by the time dinner came around, I was not feeling well. I took some motion sickness medicine since the boat was rocking a lot but once we got back to our room, all I could do was curl up in a ball and close my eyes so I wouldn't get sick. Todd actually had to pack some of my stuff for me. I think since our room was at the very back of the ship, we could feel it rocking more. My parents' room was more in the middle and they said it wasn't that bad at all. We found out the next day the waves were coming up all the onto the 4th deck and they had to close all the upper decks due to the wind.
We had to get up very early on Sunday morning to get off the ship and make it to the Barcelona airport for our flight at 10:30 AM. Luckily the winds had died down sometime during the night and I was actually able to get some sleep. We boarded our flight and 9 long hours later, we arrived in Philadelphia. I was ecstatic to be back in the U.S. so I could finally turn on my phone and start calling all my friends and family to let them know the good news about Todd & I. A short flight later, we were landed back in Columbus and our vacation was officially over. It was an unbelievable trip and a once-in-lifetime experience. For obvious reasons, it'll be a trip I never forget and I still can't believe all the amazing sights we saw and food we ate. Definitely a trip to remember!
