I am heading out west tomorrow for a seminar at sea. I am going to Vancouver where I'll meet a girlfriend and we will board a ship for Alaska. I am very excited but at the same time, what was I thinking signing up for this seminar the same month as our family vacation? You guys know I love to travel, it's the reason I got in the travel business so I am always up to seeing and experiencing a new place. And Alaska looks wonderful "T" from Livin the Life has been there and she tells me I'll love it and I'm sure I will. But my sweetie can't go with me because of his work, and even though a friend is coming with me and I'll be with a group of other travel agents and our cruise representative, I am going to miss him something crazy. I think it might be the longest we've been apart. I've been on these trips before without him, I went to Paris in 1999 with a group of travel agents by myself and it always is a growing experience to step out of your comfort zone. But I'll still miss you sweetie! But don't worry, our cell phone service tells me I will have free service in Alaska so I'll be calling you when we dock and just think you won't have me calling you ten times a day and asking you things like "what are you doing?". LOL. Anyway, I'll be gone but I have some posts ready that my daughter will post for me and I'll probably check in at some point. I also have Travel Tuesday done for next week and ready to post so hopefully she'll remember to post them. I won't be online much because it costs around a zillion dollars to get online on a cruise ship, okay I exaggerate but it's not the cheapest so I'll just get online a few times to let you know a bear hasn't gotten me or I fell overboard. I am so hoping to see a whale and a bald eagle. I already know there will be wonderful opportunities for pictures. But if you can, pray for me while I'm gone, I know I've mention some ongoing back issues and I'm a little nervous about handling my luggage by myself. I know the cruise lines will help me with some of it, but I might have a problem sometimes. I'll be back soon and don't forget to check back in because I have some nice posts set up. Can't wait to play catch up when I get back. Take care!
