Last year the man and I took a cruise through the Caribbean. One of our stops was in Jamaica and it was an amazing experience! Since Dave and I spent every second off the ship together I never bothered taking my wallet. He payed for everything and I figured why carry mine around if I wasn't going to use it? So I left my wallet, phone and passport on the ship. No big deal for most people. We went throughout the day normally, spent time on the beach, went shopping, walked around the town, you know the usual touristy things. The time was coming for us to return to the ship and we were heading back. Somehow we got separated and our plan was that if that ever happened to just meet back at the ship. So that's what I planned on doing. As I got closer to the ship I noticed it was getting further and further away. Isn't it supposed to be getting closer? I mean I was speed walking my way to the ship. As I turned onto the walkway to the ship I noticed it wasn't there, it was out to sea!!! I immediately started panicking and ran back to the port to see if any of the Royal Caribbean employees could call them and tell them to wait. There was no way for them to do that. And since I didn't have any type of identification with me basically they told me I was out of luck. I was petrified! So I went to find a phone I could use to call someone, anyone. Maybe my Mom? Oh yeah I didn't have money with me, not even spare change. And I didn't even know how to call out of the country! So I went back to the port office to see if they could help and guess what? The doors were locked. They were closed! I sat on a bench outside of the office and cried and cried and cried. I thought I was going to be stranded there forever as a bum sleeping on benches.
The next thing I knew an employee was offering for me to stay with her until I figured out a way to get back home. I was so grateful! I knew how worried Dave must have been and I knew he was doing everything in his power to fix it but I knew that probably wouldn't make a difference. I was freaking out because we still had five more days left of our cruise. What was I going to do for five days without any money? The next day I made my way to the local airport to see if maybe the customs department could somehow help me. No luck but I did run into a very nice lady who was indeed willing to help. She happened to have a private plane and couldn't say no to a poor American girl who was balling her eyes out. I figured being in the states trying to prove that I was a real American citizen was better than being a homeless bum living on the streets of a foreign country. So I hopped on the plane and prayed Dave wouldn't come to Jamaica looking for me! Oh did I mention the lady helping me was Kim Kardashian? She really is so nice in real life! We made it to Orlando and I was able to call my parents who graciously put me up in a hotel until Dave returned. I called, texted and emailed Dave letting him know I was safely in Orlando hoping that he'd think to check. I was home! I was safe and I met a huge celebrity! I was so afraid I would never see Kyson again and I could not wait to give him a giant hug.
There's just one piece of information you should know and that's that none of this happened.. This was the dream I had last night! I just want to show just how real and intense my dreams are. Every night! I've never once had a dream where I was falling or being chased by gorillas. All my dreams are real life things that could happen! I woke up so freaked out from this dream that I about started crying. My real life experience in Jamaica was one of the best times on my life and I would love to visit again but I would never want to be stranded there. Unless I could eat all the Jerk Chicken I could handle, for free. Then I might consider being stranded there!
