Being in the middle of ocean is a pretty surreal experience. You're away from everything-everyone. You have almost no contact with the outside world.
Did you know they found a cure for Ebola? Really? We didn't. We were in the middle of the ocean when that happened. Did you know that a massive volcano erupted in Iceland? We didn't. That there was a 6.0 earthquake in San Francisco? We didn't. It felt like God was really on our side through our entire vacation. We were really caught between three different things to do on this exact week for vacation: A cruise to the Caribbean, a week in San Fran to explore the beautiful city, or a week in Iceland for a music festival. No really, that's what we tried to decide on. We would've been in San Francisco the day of that earthquake. We would have been stuck in Iceland during a major volcanic eruption because they weren't letting planes leave until yesterday.
It's incredible how God works. He chose the perfect paradise for us to spend a marital getaway in, and He kept us safe.
Grateful doesn't even begin to describe it.
