Transcontinental Cruisin’

There are a few openings on a last minute Disney cruise crossing the Atlantic, do you want to go? A no brainer.

After a stop in the coveted Castaway Cay for a day of pampering ourselves, we set off for 6 days at sea without stepping foot on land or seeing other ships. Most people say they couldn’t handle it. To this natural introvert, I couldn’t get enough. It was amazing. There were extra classes offered in the gallies, bridge tours, first run Disney movies and extra pool time.

We had stops in Madeira, Portugal and Gibraltar, which were my first experiences outside the Western Hemisphere. A whole new world.

Spain was delicious in every sense of the world. The vibrant colors everywhere. The house decor. The exquisite food. The over the top flower bouquets. I will have to spend more time there in the future without question.

Gibraltar was extremely interesting to me with caves built into the towering rocks that we got to explore and views on a clear day to actually see the neighboring continent of Africa. Monkeys lingered around trying to steal your food and wallets. And the airport is listed as one of the most unique and dangerous in the world, as it is the only one to have a highway running straight perpendicular onto its only runway.

The grand finale was pulling into Barcelona for the first time ever, their new home port for the season, with a spectacular fireworks extravaganza. Oh my…… it’s was Disneyesque and truly magical!

Love adventure travel, work hard & play hard, happy in both extremes - relaxing on a remote beach or rappelling down cliffs, take joy in simple things, love being on & near the water, visited 55 countries & 47 states so far in this crazy beautiful life! Goals by my 50th birthday - 50 states. 75 countries. 50 national parks. Be in Antarctica on my big day.
