No Plans, No Problems

I got off the ship in Cartagena with no agenda. I had heard that it was a nice town, but knew no details.

We grabbed a map and just started wandering down a main street. On the way, we saw some beautiful old buildings, street performers, and plenty of nice shops. We wove our way over to a small park, and then went searching for food.

We found a nice tapas restaurant on a side street with each plate only 1.50 euros. The food was great, and the place had fast wifi… A precious thing when you work on ships!

After lunch, some of our group was going to the beach. Since I am part vampire and can’t take too much sun, I opted to instead go to the Roman Theater. There was a museum part first, with interesting information about the theater and the city. Next, we went through a tunnel under an old church. The tunnel led to the theater, a huge old proscenium stage with views overlooking the city. Dancer that I am, I had to get on the stage!

Always on stage

My friend and I were enjoying the warm weather, so we sat under an umbrella with a glass of sangria before getting back on board. It was a short, but fun, outing!
