Oceania » Guam April 15th 2009

Okay, so this is a little bit late. Did I mention I love going to Guam? It's such a paradise, though things can be a little too quiet. My number anytime I'm in Guam is 671-482-4664. So, this was my first chance to get back to work with the Civilian Mariners (CivMars) and let me just say that they are not given as much credit as they deserve.

Taxis are the main way to travel besides the SMRT (railway/subway), so with my luggage we took a taxi. What an experience that was in itself. It's after midnight and our taxi driver is falling asleep at the wheel! Somehow me managed to arrive safely at the base. The Navy Lodge was full, so I just stayed with Sal, he had double beds ... read more

We went to Knoxville, TN for Turkey Day. It was divine to go home but definitely a bit too short. Robyn flew in as well and we decided Midnight Madness on Black Friday was for us. It was fantastic, the sales were ridiculous at 75% off or so. Anyway, I am not a writer and I'm exhausted. Maybe I'll post more later.... read more
