Nothing Exciting!

Well nothing exciting has been going on in my life since I've come back from Romania but I will entertain you all for a little while.
I've been working a lot and hanging out with friends in the evenings and on weekends. Some weekends we went hiking and lots of going away or birthday parties.
Last weekend my friend L. and I went for a day at the spa at the Grand Wailea where we enjoyed the Therma baths and a massage. It was amazing. I wish I had the money to do it more. It was a special for $99 and it was for L.'s birthday so those were the main reasons I was able to do it right now.
Otherwise, I am getting ready to leave on Friday for my next adventure. One of my co-workers and I, and other people (who I know or don't know) will be leaving this weekend for a cruise on the Mediterranean Sea. We will arrive in Rome, Italy on Sunday October 12th and spend the first night at a hotel. We will do some touristy things until Monday afternoon before we get on the ship at 5pm and leave on the water at 6pm. I'm hoping to not get sea sick or feel claustophobic in our little room.
Over the next few days (two weeks) we will visit four cities in Greece, two cities in Turkey and Naples/Capri in Italy.
I will keep you all updated as much as I can over the past few weeks. Please pray for safe travels and health.

Sounds like fun! Have you seen the ship you're going to be on?

I can't wait to see pictures.

Yes I did a virtual tour of the ship online. it's called celebrity cruises and I'm on the Galaxy ship. I'll have plenty pictures.

Wow. That wasn't what I was expecting at all. I assumed it would be a little cruise ship but this one is really big. It looks quite nice as well.

They have an internet lounge... regular updates?

Jilda, have fun! That sounds like a dream cruise! Take some pictures of those wonderful blue waters with the little bright white houses on the hills...

I started eatting ginger tablets for motionsickness. They work better than Drammamine for me. Besides, Myth Busters had a show about it too! It works!

Safe travels!

I would take ginger but I am sick of them since I ate a whole bag on my Molokai ferry. I can't stand ginger anymore. I'm sure I'll be fine. It's all in my head anyways :)

My Mum is very prone to motion sickness. She does ok on cruise ships without medication unless its stormy. (Because the ship is so big there is very little side-to-side movement)

Well we are on the sea, so I'm hoping it's not too stormy as if we were on the ocean.

Wow, it's an update! Suprpriza, surpriza! Ha :)

Glad you're able to go on the cruise, you're gonna have a great time I'm sure. The weather's been so nice in Romania, you'll probably have warm weather while you're there too.

Have a good time!!!
