As many of you know we are heading out soon for our big 20th Anniversary Voyage.
Our first time in the Mediterranean! This trip all came about originally because for us when we have a big birthday, and I turned 50 in August, that person gets to plan a trip.
So almost two years ago Bernie kept saying what do you want to do for your 50th? I also kept saying it isn't only my 50th but our 20th Wedding Anniversary so we should decide together.
Well long story made shorter -- I picked a Mediterranean cruise with the Trans Atlantic added on for the Island leaving Oct 25. We would celebrate both events this voyage. But Bernie surprised me with a cruise on my actual birthday so this trip is now just for our Anniversary. I don't need to be reminded about the 50th age anymore.
Since this is the first time in this area we had a lot more research that was needed cause we were totally green. So many great tips were provided by so many friends, fans from my Facebook fan page and from Cruise Critic.
But note we leave in ten days and we are still working and trying to get it all done before we go and it is starting to pile up.
I am off today so I am tackling a bunch of things on that list, including heading out to vote today in the advance polls for our Federal Election that happens on the day we fly out.
Our friend Katrina is staying here again while we are away so I have to prepare the house for her. Can't leave it messy like we would if we were leaving it empty.
We are sailing over Halloween and I want to pick up some decorations for our cabin door today too.
Bernie is in charge of all the currency, banking stuff. Long time rule for us is this is his role when we travel cause I really hate dealing with it and he is so much better when dealing with currency conversions.
Eight more work days! But who is counting.
