Certain vacations are really tough to come home from, like this last one was.

But once you get home, you are glad to be back.  This trip was exactly what we needed.  It was the trip of a lifetime but still full of rest.

We spent a week on a 38-foot power catamaran, just the two of us, chartered through the excellent Marine Max Vacations.  Yes, I navigated and “skippered” throughout.

It’s good to be back into the swing of things.  More pics from our vacation coming soon (you can also see more here), as well as a look from the personal finance angle of the trip.  I can tell you right now, this trip was the result of living a debt-free life!

The blog was still active while I was away (as was Nancy’s blog), wrapping up the series on Essentials for a Successful Missions Trip and How to Handle Unexpected Income / Loss of Income.   Good to be back!
