Because it’s infected with people.
Perhaps one of the weirdest vacations I continue to take as an introvert is the week-long cruise trip. I’ve been on about 10 of them. Since I was a teen, my mother saw it fit to take me, my brother and the rest of the family on a getaway via an oversize, Vegas-style ship. I always enjoyed island-hoping with family and creating new memories. As I got older, I realized that there are way too many people on cruise ships.
This week, my mother, brother, niece and I will board the Norwegian Breakaway. With a capacity of 3,963 people, I will successfully lose my shit. Still, it’s one of the best experiences ever! I love the quality time I get to spend with my family and I especially love visiting different islands. It really is a great bang for your buck.
While away, my brother and I will be celebrating our birthdays. We are 5 years a part but have birthdays that are one day after the other. My brother is definitely more social than I am. He enjoys going out and meeting new people. I enjoy texting. This year, I want to challenge myself to do something different. I’m going to try to make a friend! Making connections with people outside of your travel buddies is such a cool feature of experiencing the world. I aim to leave the Norwegian Breakaway with at least one new friend. I’ll let you know how that goes…
See you when I get back!
