2 Adults, 3 boys, 365 Days of Adventure

Catching Up

So I’ve gotten terribly behind again and it’s going to take me some time to get caught up.  Unlike in the past I may post some cities out of order so that I can write while things are fresh in my mind and give my readers more consistent content.  I also may post some things that are more reflective on the adventure so far as opposed to being strictly chronological.We’ll see.

It was great to get so much positive feedback about my blog when I was back Los Angeles and it has inspired me to start writing again.  So thanks for all of the kind words!  Please keep them coming because sometimes I feeling like I’ m throwing out thoughts into a vacuum.

Given that some upcoming posts may be out of order I wanted to summarize our recent destinations:  After leaving rvieto (my last post), immediately following the Ancient Empires Cruise, we followed this path:

Amalfi – 3 days
Pompeii – 2 days
A Villa in Tuscany –  7 days

Florence for Thanksgiving with the Karlins and Mamo and Papa John –  11 days
Rome with Mamo and Papa John – 6 days
New York – 3 days
Boulder for the Holidays and a some self-reflection – About a month
Big White, BC – two weeks
Manhattan Beach – 3 days
Fiji – 3 days

As I write this we are on an Air Pacific flight on our way to Sydney.  Keeks and Cracker are sitting in the row behind me on their iPods (playing SimCity I think), Jennifer is on my right watching an in-flight movie, Bodie is on my left watching Keeks’ performance of The Wizard of Oz on Jennifer’s laptop and I am enjoying a few moments of peace and writing as fast as I can.  Once we land in Sydney we will head to our ship, the Rhapsody of the Seas, which will be our home for the next 22 nights as we circumnavigate New Zealand and Tasmania.  We’re looking forward to it!

sorry we missed you guys in LA! I always read your posts and the envy just grows each time. You guys are living our dream. 22 days on a ship around New Zeland Austraila. Wow! Have a safe and great time. Blessings.

Great to get the update! Wish we could have connected while you were in L.A. We’ve been visiting family here for a couple of months. Returning to our boat in Italy next week. Have fun in New Zealand! –Mike and Linda

Cool to see you, even if just for a few seconds, last week. Keep it coming, it’s been fun.
