Ok, it has been a month exactly since I have said anything. At least on here anyway. I am still in the process of writing about Zanzibar and while doing so, I noticed that I had a lot to say. Quite frankly between the time spent on other things and making sure I download true to my journey, I am still filling out my day one notes. Because of the length, I will break the days down into parts, for your sake and mine. In the meantime, I thought this was interesting enough to share. Some time ago, I discussed my desire to buy a DNA testing kit to find out what I was made of, after watching...

During this 6-week recovery, I decided to make the most of it. Or whatever that actually means. I had no expectation of being a good or quick recovering patient. That notion came from fear of the unknown (for  my first surgery), and knowing that I have absolutely no ease when it comes to hospitals, sickness or anything remotely gruesome – meaning blood and any other bodily fluid. None of this was not because I had no faith in myself to be strong; I simply didn’t know how to forecast how I would be after the surgery. Also, since this surgery came on the tail end of the most difficult cha...

*As of this post, Aruba is officially over, and in the past. My timing was spot on, because as of next week, I will be out for the count. I do not anticipate that I will post during this time. Recovery time for my surgery is around 6 weeks, and my only true goal will be to focus on that only. After surgery, I have major plans, and getting back to 100% is paramount. This recovery time will not be only physical. It...

During this entire trip, this is the only morning, besides the day I return home, that I had to be serious about obeying the alarm clock. This is also the only morning thus far that there was not a bagel somewhere in my hand with a coffee. Because of the time, and the fact that I would be fed on the ship, trying to run out for a breakfast sandwich seemed like a waste. When I purchased the ticket for the cruise, I was told that I was to go to Pelican Pier, which incidentally was the same pier from the must go to happy hour. Cruisers were to meet promptly at 9:0...

Most days, when I wake up,Monday through Friday, it is with a scowl. Scowl at the alarm clock for disrupting that final hour of the best sleep ever, scowl for reminding me that I have to get somewhere by a certain time, and lately a scowl for rebooting all the thoughts that I had finally managed to quiet. While I have been on my “life sabbatical,” when the alarm clock rings, it’s only a friendly wake up call to get me on my way back outside to paradise. The only thing that rem...
