Hey there, my name is Cat...I just stepped off Carnival Imagination a day ago and have this fluttering feeling of regret which I have never had before in my life. You see, I am a triathlete here in vermont and was on vacation helping a family with their child who is disabled. On this trip, there was a man who was obviously a triathlete, most likely, an Ironman competitor. I was impressed by him, his strength, and demeanor on the ship. There were several times when I should have asked him a million questions about his racing and training, etc....however, I regretfully did not. The last couple of days on the ship I seemed to notice him every where I went. No name exchanging etc......and I am still filled with regret. I know how people are when they just return from a trip, and I know this will pass, but for right now, I just wished I had asked his name to learn a bit more. He was with a woman, brown hair medium build.....they seemed very happy together, but I just felt as though under our sunglasses we were looking at one another on many different occasions. When I would pass him, I got goose bumps...that is not normal. I have been with someone as well for two years now, and NOT ONCE have had the thought that he may not be the one until this six day adventure. I don't even know his name, and I am sure I never will. What an akward email to write....knowing that chances are the slimmest they could possibly get that we will never meet. In any case, I write to clear my head. I had a great time on this ship......my only thoughts pertaining to my time on the ship would be a larger more up to date work out physility ha ha.
Be well, and if by chance this man reads this email, I was blond, 5ft7, athletically built and smiling most of the time on the ship.
