September 2012 – Carnival Inspiration Cruise – Hola from Ensenada, Mexico



It feels so good to be finally back in the USA! How’s everyone been doing?!? Oh I miss you all soooooo much!!!! September was a BIG Month for us and it was truly Special being able to spend some quality time with my “Lil Familia”


Here’s some Postcard Pictures from our  Mexico Vacation on the Carnival Inspiration Cruise…


Always desire to learn something useful.

You never know what will motivate you.

I’m privileged to grow up having both my parents in the Travel Agency Business for over 20 years.

At an early age, my sister, Brother, and I got to experience international traveling first hand.

My desire to Learn and See all the many Different Cultures and Languages has increase over the years and I’m glad I am able to blog my Travels with You – WORLD WIDE.

“Expect problems and eat them for Breakfast.”

- Alfred A. Montapert


 Life isn’t always a Vacation…

it takes a whole lot of Planning and Work to get where I am at today… It not easy; learning how to Balance being a New Young Mom and still maintain a Loving Relationship is more Stressful than I bargain for! That’s why I take pride in seeing the two people that matter most, HAPPY, Smiling, and Laughing.

“I’ve worked too hard and too long to let anything stand in the way of my goals. I will not let my teammates down and I will not let myself down.” - Mia Hamm

My New and Improved Aspiration: to be more grown-up, more together, and more focused.

“Things do not happen. Things are made to happen.” – John F. Kennedy

Our Carnival Room Service was AWESOME! Naomi loves coming back to our cabin to see what new Animal she got every day! Special Thanks to Ronnie for his  crafty skills and keeping our room sparkling clean & Glen for hooking us up with all the Fine Food! The staff were super nice and their service was excellent! [[♥ ♥ ♥]]

Lobster & Shrimp, Prime Rib, and Pepperoni Pizza for dinner every night will defiantly make you bring back some extra baggages!

(NOTE TO SELF: When on Vacation… There’s no such thing as Work-Out-Plan)

“Only the educated are free.” - Epicetus 

About the 2nd Day we arrived in Ensenada, Mexico and was ready to go exploring! 

Who needs Dora, when you have Naomi & Philly as your Tour Guide 

 Estero Beach Resort in Ensenada

We walked off the deck and down towards the Town and asked a random Taxi Driver to take us to the beach. He told us it’ll be 15-20 minute commute and a $20 cab fare and it’ll be well worth it… Gracias Amigo! He was Right!

It was just like Heaven…

Pina Coloda on the Beach + Chips & Salsa + Shrimp Ceviche + Authentic Carne Asada + Fish Tacos = Long Relaxing Nap! (PLUS GAS)

After a long day of Feasting, Swimming, & Tanning, we headed back on the ship for a Quick Game of Chess… Naomi won.

“I really believe that everyone has a talent, ability, or skill that can mine to support himself and to succeed in life.” 

- Dean Koontz

The Carnival Inspiration Cruise  loved our Mother / Daughter Stand-Up Act that they let us Open for their Comedy Show! ;)

 “If you want your children to turn out well, spend twice as much time with them, and half as much money.” - Abigail Van Buren 

If you ask Naomi what her favorite food is… she will say Spaghetti!


 Oh man… I swear I just got hungry… I’m glad to be back in the City of Portland because I was sure missing my “Home Cooked Meals!”

Attention Passengers: we are now boarding all passengers going to PDX from LGB! We’ve reached the end of Trip and would like to Thank you for Traveling with Juicy Airlines! You have arrived at your final destination and free to unfasten your seatbelt.

Remember kids… Always FLY Safe! [[♥]]
