Day 17 At Sea

Today was a lazy day at sea punctuated by a medical evacuation by helicopter. This morning we had to turn back to meet an RAF helicopter to take off a guest with a head injury. It was nice to have a quiet day at sea to relax. Tomorrow morning I will be meeting my friends Aart & Yvonne for a wonderful day in Holland…..

Hi Jeff,

I stumbled upon your blog at the beginning of your last world cruise, and now I can't get enough! I feel like I take a mini-vacation every day while stuck at my desk at work - your pictures are gorgeous, and I'm learning a lot about the world that, aside from a handful of major European cities, I have yet to visit. I was curious as to how you began cruising - do you or did you work for Holland America? Just a fan of travel? How are you able to cruise for such long stretches of time? Please don't feel obligated to answer if that's too private - I'm really just fascinated...and dream of doing this myself one day. :)

Enjoy the rest of your trip - I hope you don't mind me "lurking" and I look forward to seeing where your travels take you!

Wonderful photos as always and great commentary. We too love Scotland, especially as my husband's ancestors came from the highlands - Inverness. The Scottish are just so friendly.
