When most people think of cruises, the places that come to mind are the Caribbean and the Mediterranean (both beautiful, seaworthy destinations), but I have my eye on four other awesome, perhaps less conventional, cruise routes. Here's what I've been checking out. . . .
The Riviera Maya region caught my attention when I learned about the Coba ruins. It looks like such an interesting and beautiful place! As I started researching what a trip to Coba would look like, I learned more about the Riveria Maya region in general and became very excited about a trip there. From numerous Mayan ruins to beaches, cenotes, and underwater wildlife, this region really has a lot of activities to offer. . . .
This summer, John and I took a weekend trip to the eastern panhandle of West Virginia, specifically to the towns of Harpers Ferry and Shepherdstown. I honestly didn't know much about this area before planning our trip, other than "Harpers Ferry" seemed to ring a bell from an American History class taken long ago. I rediscovered Harpers Ferry while browsing through Moon's Road Trip USA (a gift from John to inspire our future cross-country road trip!) and thought it seemed like a great area to escape to for a couple of days. We were looking for a place that offered a range of things to see and do, but that was still relatively relaxing and manageable for a weekend. We also wanted to stay within a few hours drive from home. Harpers Ferry fit the bill! . . .
