When my wife and I celebrated our 10-year anniversary, we decided to take a trip to a tropical island location.
Both of us were very excited to get out of town and I was even more excited to get out of the country for the first time in my life.
My wife spent a lot of time in the military before we got married and she saw dozens of different countries, but I was a city kid and I never left my neighborhood. We took a very large jet across the ocean to get to our destination. My wife and I rented a beach cabana for that week-long getaway. We carefully read through the brochures and my wife and I chose these cabanas because they were supposed to have a bed, shower, toilet, and AC. My wife and I never would have stayed on the beach if we thought that the cabana would not have any AC. It was almost a hundred degrees during the day and the climate control system in our cabana was not an actual AC unit. It was a large ceiling fan and a small exhaust fan in the bathroom. During the day, the temperatures were insanely hot and my wife and I were totally miserable. The only time we felt any relief was when the sun went down. The temperature has really dropped when the sun went down and my wife and I found that the evenings were actually quite pleasant. We even slept with the windows open so we could smell the ocean breeze.
