Feb 6, 2020 - Sea and Sick

Well, we had a different sea day today. We went for breakfast and had a look at a poolside sale then returned to our room. It was very windy and sitting on the veranda was not an option. Christine started to feel a bit queasy with the motion and took some Gravol which helped but did not completely dispose of the unsettled feeling. We sat and read. Christine had very little for lunch.

When we stepped out onto the deck tonight and the breeze warmly wrapped our pants round our legs we reflected that the feeling would have been quite different if we had done this at home where the same pants would probably have turned stiff and our legs felt the chill of the cold fabric. We are fortunate to be able to escape at least some of the ravages of winter. We were up early this morning and had our breakfast delivered to our room. We ate and got ready then waited for the all clear to leave the ship. We watched the ship dock at Amber...

Living the Dream

Apr 17, 2003 - The Trip That Got Me Hooked....

My first trip was to the resort of Paradise Beach Club in Puerto Plata in 2003. I went with four of my girlfriends just before graduation and it was one of the most memorable times of my life. I had an absolute blast!! The weeks leading up to our departure we would skip school and go to the libary just to surf the internet and lok at pictures of our resort and the country. I rememebr starring at the oocean and sand and I couldnt believe that I would actually see it in person. It semed so surreal to me that something as beautiful as that...
