Our first night was a total success I absolutely had so much fun! I did have a nap in the afternoon to catch up on the time! Woke up at 9ish pm to a very nice organize closet and living space! Hubby woke up before me and was bored. I then quickly changed to go out. We stopped by this Latin bar( balero) had a few drinks. I've been Hooked on this amazing mango daiquirï and hubby took his regular grey goose soda. There was some really good dancers on the dance floors. I honestly didn't have the guts to do the same they were too good for me! We walked around stopped at the casino and then ended at the nightclub (the dungeon) where we had an AMAZING time on the dance floor!( I guess a few drinks did help ) :)
We danced for a good two hours non stop and then went to our room to bed. ( workout of the day )
Waking up to a nice beach breeze coming from our balcony door! Oh I love vacation! I instantly woke up aroun 8am our time but then realize that it was 2am where we were( Italy time) so I forced myself back to bed.
Woke up at 9am Italy time and looked out the balcony and saw that we were almost at our destination! We Arrived in Messina!!!! It's such a beautiful city and beautiful view!
We didn't book anything with the cruise so we had time to get ready! We then headed to the morning buffet and had a few bites! There were plenty of option to choose from.There was English breakfast, continental breakfast, hot & cold breakfast and a lot more!
After this delicious breakfast we got ready and headed in the city! Messina is a small city, but has so many beautiful monuments and history to it! We didn't take part of the cruise package and decided to explore the city on our own. As soon as we got out of the cruise line exit door there was A LOT of street vendors that were trying to sell anything even water bottles for 3euros!! Hubby and I were more looking to taste the food and coffee and we saw a cute shop off by the beautiful Santa Maria church where we stopped for bite. I had a slushy/gelato citron ( I honestly don't remember how they call it ) hubby had a coffee more like an expression and we both chose to have a canolo.
We then decided to walk around the cities and opted to go on a horse carriage to visit the part that we didn't see. It was a pretty tour and our guide didn't speak a word of english so that was fun trying to communicate and understand each other. After our ride we decided it was time to go back to the boat as we were exausted! We went straight to our room and changed into our bathing gears and went to the jacuzzi. I honestly loved the pool/jacuzzi time! This meant relaxing time! Since I started fifty shades of grey I wanted to finish it. It's not the best book ever but now I'm into it the plot I have to finish the other two books!
That beautiful ended with a nice dinner where we celebrated our 5 year anniversary. We were surprised by the staff by getting the honey mooners table to watch the sunset and also got a free dessert as a complimentary gift and we ended up on the dancefloor until 2 am to party up!
Stay tune for day 3 xoxo
