A Million Miles from Monday

Debra St. John


Debra St. John has been reading and writing romance since high school. She always dreamed about publishing a romance novel some day. Her dream came true when she started writing sultry contemporary romance with sexy heroes and spunky heroines for The Wild Rose Press. Although she’s a country girl at heart, she lives in a suburb of Chicago with her husband, who is her real life hero.

Okay, so technically that’s the tag line for weekend vacationing in Illinois. But I’m going to borrow it here because right now it’s the start of Spring Break and I’m in beautiful Cozumel, Mexico. It’s our first port of call on a week-long Western Caribbean cruise. After a long, cold, snowy winter, a tropical escape is just the thing.

We visited Cozumel sixteen years ago on our honeymoon. Then we did a walk-about, some shopping, and some photo ops. This time around we’re heading to “Discover Mexico”, a ‘theme park’ devoted to Mexico’s heritage and history. There are tropical gardens filled with coconuts, papayas, and bananas, not to mention macaws, turtles, and iguanas. We’ll also see 1/25 scale models of ancient pyramids. Souvenir shopping is a must…we always collect a Christmas ornament from every place to visit. Our tour will end with a taco and margarita sampler. Yum.

Debra St. JohnAfter the park, we’ll take some time to just stroll on our own. There are a few specific picture spots I want to visit. Spots I featured in Wild Wedding Weekend when my hero and heroine visited there on their honeymoon. I want to take some snapshots with the book for my web-site. Technically I’m not considering this a ‘working vacation’, but I thought it would be a fun addition to my web-site to feature the real-life locations in my books.

In the days to follow we’ll also visit Grand Cayman, Belize, and Mahogany Bay. Grand Cayman isn’t new to us (and was also featured in WWW), but both Central American ports are, so we’re excited to discover some new things.

But for now, we’re soaking up the sand and sun and taking one lazy, relaxing day at a time. Ahhhhhhhhhhhh.

Until next time,

Happy Reading!

    I wish I was there soaking up the sun and the sand. Its like 40 degrees here right now and I am so ready for spring. We do have some sunshine but its really cool and will be for the next few days and then warmer tempts are on the way. Enjoy your vacation.

    It’s always wonderful to revisit places that have happy memories. It all sounds lovely.

    It’s wet & cool here today – lovely. It’s been SO dry & hot.
