Spring Break Essay

1569 words - 6 pages

Spring Break 2002 On Tuesday the 12th I went to Cozumel, Mexico with my girlfriend and her dad, brother, step mom and two little half sisters. She came to my house at 8:30 a.m. to pick me up. We were going to go to her dad?s house and meet them there, and take a big van to the airport. When we got there everything was ready to go the only thing we had to do was load all the bags into the van. That didn?t sound to hard, but I didn?t know at the time that her crazy step mom had 15 bags. I am not kidding when I say 15. One bag for day cloths, one bag for beach cloths, one bag for night time cloths, one bag full of make up, one bag full of bottled water, one bag full of first aid stuff, one bag for her two year old daughter, one bag for her six year old daughter, two bags for her husband and I don?t even know what was in the other bags. So after me and Paul (my girlfriends brother) got done loading up all the bags we were on the way to the airport. I started thinking we are never going to be on time because since 9/11 they check every bag at the airport and that is going to take forever. Once we got to the airport we needed two guys with dollies to bring everything to the check in counter. Everybody was looking at us when we were thru the airport. I don?t think I will ever forget the face the lady behind the counter made when it was our turn. I could tell she had never seen anything like this before. It took us about 30 minutes to check our bags in, and we got really lucky because they didn?t check any of them. I couldn?t believe that we made it to the Gate in time, but we did. We even had time to get something to drink before we got on the plan.Once we were in the plan I started to relax a little bit, and I got out my magazine and just sat back. I was sitting next to my girlfriend and her dad. After about two and a half hours we landed in Cozumel Mexico. When we walked out of the plan it hit me I was in Mexico, at the beach and I didn?t have to worry about anything. We got another huge van that drove us to our hotel. The hotel was called the Paradises. And it really was paradise. That was the first time that I was going to stay in an all inclusive hotel. After we got our rooms, I was chairing a room with Paul we went to the front desk to get our wrist bands. I managed to get a purple one. That means you are 18 or older and you can drink. From that moment on I knew It couldn?t get much better. After we were all done unpacking it was about seven o? clock in the evening. We were all pretty tiered so we decided not to go out, we just stayed at the hotel and hug out and got drunk. We all went to bed quite early that night. We had only been there for like four hours and already I never wanted to leaf again. Our room had view of the ocean.We got woken up by my girlfriend around eight o? clock. At first I was kind of upset that she woke us up so early but as soon as I stepped onto our balcony that was all forgotten because it was about eighty degrees and I...
