Hello all, I just realized I've been on several trips since my last post and I haven't blogged at all. I also noticed I have 8 entries that I haven't completed and published. Once I get some time t review them, and publish them. Since I'm going on a couple more trips this year, I figured it was time to blog again. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy this short recap of the trip I just went on. I think one of the greatest gifts people can have is true friendship. Luckily, I've been blessed with a great wife, great family, and great friends. The latter was the reason for this trip. Our friend Lee (aka Dj Hoppa) is getting married later this month. Thus, a bunch of our friends that have know each other ... read more

Bonne année 2020 ! Soyez heureux de vivre ! Nous nous sommes donc rendus pour noël à Agua Verde, un petit village perdu au bout d’une piste caillouteuse, entre montagnes et mer de Cortes. Quel bel endroit ! que de gens sympathiques ! Nous sommes précédés par notre ami pierre – un retraité de 70 ans québécois en quête d’une nouvelle vie, après en avoir déjà vécu de nombreuses – qui est arrivé avec sa « roulotte », caravane en québécois, en début d’après-midi. Nous le rejoignons sur la plage avec grand plaisir. A peine arrivé : Cérilitto, le policier du village, vient à ma rencontre et me précise que la plage est libre et donc gratuite, pas question de payer qui que ce soit pour rester ! ça commence très bien !! Dès le premier ... read more

The Central American migrant caravan has been in the news for the last few months, and having a free day in San Diego yesterday, I decided to hop across the border and see for myself what all the fuss was about. Due to a bad experience of getting my car windows smashed many years ago in Tijuana, I decided not to risk it. I parked just before the border and walked across. One thing I noticed ywas that almost everyone crossing into Tijuana, at least on foot, looked Mexican and was speaking Spanish. I think many people have day passes, and others are dual citizens. Anyway, there wasn’t any wait at all to go into Mexico, and no immigration check whatsoever on the Mexican side, just an X-ray for those with bags. As soon as I ... read more

We’ve crossed over the US Mexico border at Tijuana. Going this way was surprisingly easy – no exit formalities from the US just a one way turnstile to walk through and no queues for Mexican immigration. We end up with a 6 month Mexican visa, but only expect to spend 2-3 weeks here on our way through to Central America. From the Mexican highway we have a good view of the border fence and it is fairly substantial. It’s not a wall, but it looks like it would keep most people out, so I’m not exactly sure why Donald wants to build a “wall” here. We’ve chosen Ensenada as our first stop in Mexico. This isn’t because it’s a great place but it is a convenient distance south in Baja and we had no great desire ... read more

Fair - 63F Karen didn't sleep well last night. She suffered from indigestion, possibly from the escargot she had last night as an appetizer. It did have a lot of butter, I also enjoyed the same dish without any ill affects. This morning she finds it more difficult to get up at 8am and postpones our morning mealtime until 9:30am. Another light breakfast is in order followed by a trip downstairs to the Michelangelo Dining Room for a 75% off sale. It looks like Princess is cleaning out their warehouse. Some of this stuff we've seen for the 5th time but Karen finds a shirt she hadn't seen yet so she was happy. Oh, and a pink purse for Kaylyn. I'll let Alan fill it with money. We also run into our Scottish friends from Canada, ... read more

Geo: 31.2335, -117.978After breakfast in the dining room, we packed most everything and finished it up after dressing for dinner. On this ship, they have asked that we put as much of the luggage as possible out in the hall before going to dinner saying it will help the porters make much less noise after bedtime. We put the three suitcases out that we will check on the plane. The rest will be carry-ons although we'll have to move a few things around after we pick up the bags in the cruise ship terminal and before we check them at the airport.This afternoon, we went up to the Pacific Lounge for the final Happy Hour and Trivia Contest. Philip and I played as a team of two. Sunny and Dick have picked up some other teammates ... read more

Geo: 24.1385, -110.317Philip and I passed on the tours of La Paz today and decided to stay on the ship instead. I did walk off for a few minutes to look at the market set up on the pier and take some photos of the ship. We haven't been in any ports that provided a good photo opportunity until today. The ship looks so small compared to the photos of so many other cruise ships.We both checked email. Philip went to the afternoon movie but I skipped it choosing to sit on the balcony. The weather has been beautiful. As I write now after dinner, I am planning on going to the show—identical twins Will and Anthony who sing and tell jokes. Phil is going to watch another movie on TV. There is a stargazing night ... read more
