Our first stop was in Labadee, Haiti. It's a very poor but very beautiful place! All the locals were so friendly and always trying to sell you things. They had the nicest beach, but it was busy! We had a few hours to kill before our excursions so we did a nature hike that seriously went straight up! It only took a few minutes to get to the top and once you were there, the view was phenomenal!
After our hike we went para-sailing!
Coolest. Ride. Ever!
They strapped us to a 400 foot rope, told us not to hold onto the bar cause it will cut off our fingers, hit the gas and up in the air we went! We saw for miles!!
Way up in the air. Our camera was completely zoomed in and this is as close as it got!
Next we went on a jet ski tour around the island. It was neat to learn about the culture while still having fun on the waves. We learned that so much of Haiti doesn't have electricity or any type of running water.. I would die! We're so spoiled here in America! We stopped at a beach called Paradise Cove, it's voted one of the top 10 beaches in the world! It was gorgeous. While we were there about 12 guys in canoe's came out and tried selling us wood carvings. They were so cool but who takes their wallet on a jet ski? We stopped at a beach that's featured in Pirates of the Caribbean but I forgot the name of it, dang it! But basically that part of the island is exactly like in the movie, lots of alcohol and lots of prostitutes!
We hung out on the beach the rest of the day pestering all the little crabs :)
We had a blast in Haiti!! It's a gorgeous island with friendly people. Once we were back on the ship and headed for our next stop we well, partied!
Dancing under the stars family dance party.
Holy crap this was so fun! Basically it was a big dance off/mosh pit/karaoke party! And you better believe Dave and I ended up on the cruise DVD for our awesome dancing... Twice!! We're kind of famous now :)
I looked forward to the towel animals :)
Sorry for the 50 pictures but it's a lot to document! The next like 7 posts are going to be like this haha
Where's our second stop? Anyone wanna take a guess?
It's coming up tomorrow!!
