Tweet After too much time in the great outdoors on Fraser Island, I knew sailing the Whitsundays was more my style. I did a similar booze cruise in Croatia over a year ago, so I figured a two-day cruise would be a piece of cake. The Whitsundays are known for the insanely blue waters, where [...]

TweetHave you ever been in a foreign country, surrounded by the unfamiliar, only to find something from home? I’ve had three run-ins with familiar songs while abroad and they always come at the most bizarre times. The Song: “Georgia on My Mind” by Ray Charles The Moment: My friend Christine and I were in Amsterdam for [...]
Tweet Oceans and mountains: the best of both worlds I know I’ve already said how much I loved Croatia, but this particular night goes down as one of my favorite travel memories. My Australian cruise mates and I had reached the middle of the trip. At the point between being complete strangers and being sick [...]

TweetDays 5 & 6 (8-4-09 to 8-5-09) What a completely unreasonable day. Upon arriving in Mexico, we took a taxi to Paradise Beach, where we paid $10 for use of kayaks and water slides. Being the idiot I am, I jumped off the water trampoline and gashed by foot onto the reef. We went through 2 [...]
Tweet Days 3 & 4 (8-2-09 to 8-3-09) We had breakfast at the buffet, then laid out for a couple of hours and watched an ice sculpting demonstration in the 100+ degrees pool deck. I was actually impressed with this talent. Then we changed and went to a much better lunch in the dining room. [...]
TweetNote: I had a lot to say about every day, so thanks to my cruising experience, I now have writing material for the whole week! I also wrote what we ordered at dinner, which is very uninteresting, but I figured it is good to know what to expect when it comes to cruising fine dining. [...]
