It's real. It's on an island in the Bahamas. It's got all kinds of themed attractions, very cool looking. Someday...
We saw that briefly on our cruise 2 months ago, but we were only in port for 5 hours so we couldn't go..
There was Barely enough time to go to the Hard Rock Cafe, and the liquor store!

Well, you had your priorities straight, anyway. ;)

For us, vacations are difficult, because we're a single income family - we made the decision that my wife would stay home and devote the time to raising our daughter and being there for her. That is worth more to us than the income that my wife could be making (at the cost of a babysitter or daycare center spending more time with our daughter than we do). Unfortunately, one of the side effects of this is that we don't really have very much spare income for anything, including holidays. I've never managed to make it off the continent before, though I have been to several different areas of the US, Canada, and Mexico. So at some point, when we've managed to save the money, we're going to go on a really spectacular trip somewhere tropical and memorable, since it will probably be the only one we ever get to take (unless some kind of insane dream job falls into my lap, or a rich uncle I never knew I had dies and leaves me a pile of cash).

I Understand That.. Keep working at it. You'll get your break eventually.
We have a 'home based' business that has done well over the last 5 1/2 years and trips to Mexico are pretty frequent since my wife is from there.
While in Mexico, we sell American clothes from a small, again, 'home based' boutique out of her mother's home.
We'll buy up the summer clothes that go on sale (around this time through the fall season) as much as possible, and take it all down south of the border to sell.
That always pays for our entire vacation (including plane tickets, hotel stays in Acapulco, souvineers, etc). Even when we're on vacation, it seems like we're Still Working! :grr:

Surprisingly close! Just add in some Kung Fu and you've got it.
