Hi again, after a long hiatus, I’m back!!! Been so busy with family stuff.. My first grandbaby (a boy) was born.. and we had a fantastic family wedding.. So we had no time for cruising.. but things have quieted down and the holidays are upon us and so here we go again!

ALASKA -2013


We are heading out to Alaska, via Vancouver, BC, where we will spend 4 days sightseeing.  Then get on the ship (Voldendam, Holland America) and sail for 18 days. (This will be a back to back cruise, meaning we will be visiting the exact same places twice.) That’s OK with me since there is so much to do and see that I don’t mind seeing the same things twice.

We had done a similar cruise 9 years ago and I am happy I will get a chance to see it all again!


Hopefully, the weather will be better but we will be prepared this time, way more then last! Last time it didn’t stop raining and it was chilly, we got soaked to the bone, but had a blast nonetheless.

SO our stops will be, Skagway, Ketchikan, the Glaciers, Inside Passage, Sitka, Juneau not necessarily in that order.

Hope to see a couple of yarn shops for all my knitting buddies… and find snowglobes for my niece, who keeps promising me that she will put together a list so that we can keep track of what she has, and what she needs (really??? needs??) to cover the world, but never does!

So, I’ll be back in a couple of days when we are heading out to Vancouver!

So sit back in your favorite chair and grab your knitting or whatever and enjoy!!

You are now an official armchair traveler!!!
