Since January we have been planning, packing, and plotting. We have let go of so much: our house, our dog, tons of clothes, art, furniture, and our jobs. We have been dreaming, talking, and enjoying visits to all our favorite Southern California spots.
In 30 days we will set off on the adventures we have been talking about since we first met…TRAVELING THE WORLD!
The first leg of our journey will be a 30 day repositioning cruise (more details about this type of cruising in my next post). Our ship, Holland America’s Statendam, leaves Seattle on September 21st. We will be crossing the world’s largest ocean, the Pacific. We will have lots of time at sea (five days in a row, twice) with stops at some amazing and beautiful islands: Vancouver, Kauai, Hawaii, Majuro, Chuuk Island, Saipan, Guam, the Philippine Island of Puerto Princesa, and two islands in Malaysia. Our final stop is Singapore.
We want to share our adventures with you and hope to inspire you to create adventures of your own. Thus, this blog is reborn. Our intention is to post a weekly blog with pictures of the beautiful places and people we know we will encounter, the humorous and exciting highlights of our week and helpful tips about this type of travel.
We hope you will follow this blog and leave us your comments, insights and questions.
