welcome to europe
Don't worry, mom hasn't drank all the wine in Italy yet. Next time you find yourself in some piazza, grab a seat and ask for a spritz. Very nice on a hot day

Thanks for the update!
Garrett, Looks like a fantastic trip. Vietnam is still one of the places I really want to see along with Cambodia and Laos. When you get back drop by and give me some good pointers! Enjoy the rest of the adventure! Cheers, Jeff

Very enjoyable
Garret, I sure find your travels exciting. Does your sister send you hugs! I used to ask her that everyday when I saw her RPSA and she sauid that she would never hug you.

What a super experience!
Australia looks super fun and interesting, Garrett! I was just saying to your Mom, yesterday, that I was missing your fairly regular blog and then voila, later in the day I receive a post. I am thrilled that you are able to take such an adventure. The beach looks relaxing. Your friend Mel looks like she knows the places to show you. Petting a Kangaroo must have been a thrill. The 4x4 expedition sounds like it should be a good experience too! I enjoyed the photos of you and your parents on board ship. That is one huge playground you work on. Are you back on it any time soon? Have fun, take care and see lots, Love Aunty Leanne

Nice cabin!
Maybe the person who cleans your cabin could do so before I arrive in October? And maybe make the bed, too!

A Zamboni....
I'm thinking that most people in Canada would kill to drive a Zamboni. Doing it on a ship...You blow me away with your experiences every time I read about them. I know how excited your mum was to be seeing you. She misses you so much. Enjoy the rest of your journey and hopefully will see you on your return.

Counting down the days when we will see you. Love the pictures that you have taken.

6 degrees C !
G, Glad to hear you are in warmer climates. Only 6 Degrees C in Van this am. Hey, hey! The ISF book is a requirement of TC. Thats one of the reasons why Cadets, in an approved Cadet program, only need 360 days of sea time as opposed to much more if you were to try to get your watchkeeping mates outside of the program. Glad to hear you passed the test! Best regards, Jeff

Love your stories
Maybe be uneventful to you - fasinating for me. I will actually be disappointed when you are back on land - so you will have to fill in with train stories. :) Sheree

Happy birthday, you old sea dog! Good to see you were able to spend time with family. Looks like you will have no problem understanding tropical storms..... Try to stay a way from the sharks. Lets hope the plexiglass tube holds up! Cheers, Jeff

Hi Garrett - Happy (legal-in-all-countries) birthday to you from the McDonald clan, Glad to hear you had a great time with grandma & auntie. Scott & I really enjoy reading your blogs, checking out the pictures and looking for new places to vacation. Do I need to re-mortgage the house for the Atlantis Resort? Keep up the great work and look forward to hearing more in the coming weeks!

enjoy the view
Garrett, Looks/sounds like you are having a great time. Thanks for letting me read what and where you have been. Sounds amazing! How much more training until you are the captain? Enjoy your last 3 months!

RCL Training video
G, Good to see you can add Movie Star to the resume! Hey, just wondering if you could get a copy of the video for us or send us a link. As always appreciate the update. Looks like you are getting to experience some very great things and some Sun! Unlike Vancouver.... Looking forward to the next update. Keep on having a great adventure. Cheers Jeff

Love the travel blogs - keep 'em coming
On our Caribbean cruise, we got "stuck" at St. Maarten for two days, which was wonderful being able to do both nationalities of the island over 2 full days, including an off-the-cuff trip on the bumpy ferry to Anguilla, which was a highlight. You picked the right location for your day off, I think! Scott & I really look forward to reading your updates and keeping informed by your proud parents and W&D.

Dude!!! Sooooooo cool! Except for the passing out, but at least you got the afternoon off. ;-) It seems you are having fun! That's awesome Garrett. Con. Heck, maybe a few less years and you'll be captaining a ship! Bravo man! Way to go! Mr. A.J.

Stay hydrated!
Garrett, Not the best way to meet "cute girls" in the medical profession! I am certain they took good care of you. As always thanks for the update and photo's. The rescue boat looks like a blast! As you may have heard your are not missing much of a summer in Vancouver. Last couple of days were fantastic but its back to clouds and the threat of rain. Looking forward to the next update from more tropical climates! Best regards, Jeff

Amazing Journey's
Wow Garrett! What an amazing experience you continue to have. I am not sure how your mum feels about seeing pictures of you wired up to heart monitors but hey...just another part of the journey right? I can tell from your posts that you are living your dream. I am envious and thrilled you are able to do so. Keep us posted on your travels I look forward to your updates.

Control of a $1.4 billion ship
If you can handle control of that boat, maybe when you get back your mom will let you drive her pickup truck!
