Hi everyone! I’ve been gone
for. ev. ver!
I’ve been sailing since the middle of September, and I’m so glad to be home, even if it’s only for a week. I’m headed to NY on Sunday for the next six weeks. I’ve spent the last nine weeks in Europe and took a few pictures….
Here’s where it all started…
Some pictures from Barcelona. The guy on the top of the pole is Christopher Columbus, and thank goodness, he was pointing to my ship.
Next up was Corsica, but we didn’t stop. I only saw it from the Mediterranean.
I went to Naples six times. The mountain out there is Vesuvius. I kept my fingers crossed that she would remain sleeping every time I saw her.
I ventured to Rome. Made it to the Colloseum and the Forum, but I couldn’t see the Vatican up close. I saw it from the train a few times, but I was only there on Wednesdays, and the Pope speaks on Wednesday mornings. I just couldn’t take the crowds.
Made it to Livorno/Pisa/Tuscany/Florence area, but I had to work those nights, so I didn’t see much.
Next up was the French Riviera. Cannes is where we docked, but all the cool little towns are right there…Monaco, Monte Carlo, St Tropez, Nice…such a beautiful place…with amazing quiche!
I went to another place in Spain…the island of Mallorca! So pretty. This was a cool little outcropping of an island called Dragonera.
After going round and round in the Mediterranean for six weeks, I sailed through the Straights of Gibraltar. Here’s a picture of the Rock of Gibralter…at night! LOL!
Spent the day in Madiera, Portugal…not to be confused with Mierda. LOLOLOL!
A week in the middle of the Atlantic was fairly psychologically weird for me. I just tried to keep my mind off it.
I finally ended up in St. Maarten. The first land sighting in a week! Gives a whole new meaning to Land Ho!
Stopped off at St. Thomas, too…
And finally to Miami, where I caught the first plane home. Sigh! Glad to be home!!!
