Weather always turns wacky everywhere we go. If we travel in the winter, a freak snowstorm or record cold temps tend to happen. If we travel in summer, there are usually downpours or hurricanes to deal with. We can never win and have come to accept that we are just cursed when we travel. We went to Disney World in Feb 2009...we had to drive through the aftermath of an ice storm to get there, but that's another story. We'd already left home when they changed the forecast for Florida...highs in the 50s, lows in the 20s. We'd packed for highs in the 70s, lows in the 40s, which was the forecast before we left. Sure enough, when we got there, it was so cold that 1 or 2 of the mornings, Florida had set a new record low temperature.

We don't go on the tours that herd you like cattle either. I can count on one hand the number of tours we've taken through the cruise line and all but 1 of them was just to kill time between debarkation and the airport and cheaper than a taxi hauling us around. I like to book private tours with just a handful of other people. You don't really get a complete cultural experience when you have 70 of your fellow Americans crammed into a tiny space on a tight schedule.
