Accountability/Where Are We Going: October 2020

Happy almost Halloween. The extent of our Halloween festivities has been watching Halloween-ish movies. We watched The ‘Burb’s (ad) last night (available on Starz free trial), a lovely (relatively ridiculous) ’80’s flick starring Tom Hanks and Carrie Fisher. We watched Ghostbusters and Hubie Halloween. And, as I am not that into Halloween (I think itContinue reading “Accountability/Where Are We Going: October 2020”

Dating on a Cruise Ship

Romance at sea. Watching the sun set over the ocean. The band lightly playing in the background as you watch the sky turn from blue to gold and into stars and shimmering moonlight. It’s a formal night and you are both dressed up. You just came from dinner where you had escargot and lobster. YouContinue reading “Dating on a Cruise Ship”

Just Keep Going

I am currently wrapping up another travel related quarantine and today has had the most dismal (and oh so stereotypically Scottish) weather. I have been doing all the things they say to do. I have been exercising, eating pretty well, and limiting my alcohol intake. I am journaling and starting my days off writing downContinue reading “Just Keep Going”

Traveling With A Food Allergy

Traveling with an allergy can be a challenge. As someone that has done it a lot I am here to tell you it doesn’t have to be what stops you from flying away – although right now COVID and/or COVID related travel restrictions might. There are times that it has been incredibly frustrating or challenging,Continue reading “Traveling With A Food Allergy”

Life is Short

Someone once said very matter of fact, “It’s their birthday, so we have to go to the cemetery, because you have to go to the cemetery on their birthday.” To them it wasn’t just what they did to honor their family that had passed, it was What Was Done. It hit my gut like itContinue reading “Life is Short”

Social Media Groups

There are all sorts of things wrong with social media, between how they use our data to how much time is spent mindlessly scrolling to the online bullying that so many young people experience being able to hide behind their screen. But, in this current crazy pandemic world I have found a few social mediaContinue reading “Social Media Groups”

Port Days vs. Sea Days

At the beginning of my career working on cruise ships I was offered a contract that was going to Hawaii. I thought it was an incredible once in a lifetime experience. What I found was that my naïveté of cruise ship life was showing. The reason being, that while Hawaii is beautiful and wonderful, ifContinue reading “Port Days vs. Sea Days”

Quarantine #3

Note: This post contains affiliate links that if you click on and then purchase I will make a small commission at no cost to you. The year 2020 has been a dud for nearly everyone I think. For me it’s been a lot of time in quarantine or stuck on a ship. While I hateContinue reading “Quarantine #3”

Me and My Alien Go to America

Stuart and I made it to America the other day. Doesn’t sound that complicated. We fly around the world and between countries pretty regularly. He’s from the UK, I’m from the US. The two countries usually have a pretty open door policy between the two. So, what makes it worth writing a whole post aboutContinue reading “Me and My Alien Go to America”

Roadtrip to England

We have a friend that lives in Southampton, England. That friend had a week off of work and asked if we’d like to come stay with him and his family for a couple days. The drive to Southampton from our house online says it’s 6 hours and 57 minutes, so the last time we wentContinue reading “Roadtrip to England”
