Alright, So There’s One Resort Vacation Drawback

I pulled up this picture today while at work and started laughing so hard I choked on my fibre bar. In my resort entry two posts back, I forgot to mention the one downfall of our trip: three out of five of us got stomach sick.

Honestly, is there anywhere else you’d rather be than on a rocking, rolling catamaran having tequila shoved in your face at 11 a.m. while suffering from severe nausea? Yeah, just about anywhere.

Behold the masterpiece.

Oh my jesus I can’t stop laughing

There’s a few things I’d like to point out in this picture.

– I had to wear the “special” life jacket, because I flail around like a drunken monkey in the water.

-I am most definitely at my sexiest while wearing snorkeling gear. Except the mask kinda makes my face droop downwards like a Great Dane.

-I became violently ill upon arrival back at the catamaran, where I emptied the contents of my stomach in the bathroom’s pump toilet and couldn’t flush it properly. My friend had to do it. And then I ate lots of guacamole. Best day ever.

-WTH was the photographer thinking?

I am so dead for posting this photo.

    Love the photo, censor and all. Thanks for the updated link to Doyle and the map tab, just a guess, is where in the world has candice been. Am I right, huh, am I?

    hahahahaha I love it. I fear for your life after your friend hanging over the side finds out this photo exists on the internet though.

    “Like a Great Dane.” I am lol’ing here. This sounds like a tough day on vacation – really!

    so dead. I am officially running away from you any time there is a camera nearby. And also? thanks for not posting a pic of your puke. That was not a dare. Not even close.

    Best picture ever! (Thank you for censoring it, lol.) And who doesn’t look hot in snorkeling gear?

    Ahahahaha! Amazing! Your poor friend puking over the side looks like she is not having a good time. I still wanna go on a resort vacay though!

    Ahahahahah very funny :P Everyone looks so casual while the poor girl in the back is busy having her tossed cookies censored. “Who? Her? Yeah she’s throwing up…okay everyone, smile for the camera!” lol sounds like it was a fun vacation despite the nausea ;)

    Oh my!
    Perfect timing, Mr Photographer!

    Oh god, that photo is too funny. It’d be perfect for a Club Med ad, but for the photographer’s perfect timing :)

    Am I the only one who wants to see some puke shots? Are we talking projectile vomit here?! Keep up the great work, Candice. Always a pleasure spending time in your world!

    Thank you kindly! Big fan of your site as well. And trust me, those chunks HAD to be censored.

  • http://www.candicedoestheworld.com Candice

    I can’t believe the photographer sold us that crap! But I’m glad he did.

  • http://www.candicedoestheworld.com Candice

    I wonder if it were done on purpose?

  • http://www.candicedoestheworld.com Candice

    Hahaha, thank you!! I should have posted the picture of me running into the patio door as a way of evening out the embarrassment. I actually ran into the door and collapsed. Awesome.

  • http://www.candicedoestheworld.com Candice

    Vomit FTW!!

  • http://www.candicedoestheworld.com Candice

    Lol, totally worth all the nausea!

  • http://www.candicedoestheworld.com Candice

    The rest of the day was brilliant! We had thought about cancelling our trip that day, but would have lost all our money. :(

  • http://www.candicedoestheworld.com Candice

    Hahaha, thank you!

  • http://www.candicedoestheworld.com Candice

    Oh don’t worry, I leave the cameras out of the bathroom…usually.

  • http://www.candicedoestheworld.com Candice

    Hahaha, very tough!

  • http://www.candicedoestheworld.com Candice

    I asked permission first, just to be safe!

  • http://www.candicedoestheworld.com Candice

    CLOSE, but not quite! You shall see.

    Rad. But why’d you censor it? I wanna see chunks!
