This is some fabulous experience!
Thanks for sharing:
Hot Rocks Dining!
"Vohd-ka" Museum, now that would make my day!
This is a wonderful post, and it was a lot of work to put it together, so let me share with you how much others and myself appreciate it! You mention so many MRI in you story and like you, I "Thank-all" for their contribution to my travel experiences.
Lastly, Yes, God Bless America!
Without any question; one of the BEST and insightful insiders write-ups on travel experience.
Thank you for sharing and providing such great details and photos.
First, welcome back to the U.S. and know you were missed by at least one or two of us.
What a fantastic journey you took us on, as expected much humor throughout the story and excellent information. The pictures are stunning, but I'm with Jerry on this one......Vohd-Ka Museum, a must see!!
Splendid job pal, can't wait to learn more of your travels aboard the yacht.
Simply top notch..not much else to say. But, I'll try...... Well written, highlighting many interesting sights and experiences. Informational, for someone like me that has not traveled this particular part of the world, excellent basics. That's what a novice needs to dare to travel somewhere new. You simplified things nicely. Pictures worth 1000's of words, these snapshots flow better than a coffee table book (I mean that as a compliment).
Now, let's get away from technique and talk about content. I'm the guy who can stretch a buck with the best of them....I appreciate you not skimping out, but going for the Mercedes so the kids can get a Taurus. I'd be afraid that much of my time would be spent complaining that the additional dough wasn't worth the experience. I need high rollers like you too shake me out of the creeping frugal malaise...I know Mrs. Pained appreciates your effort!
I'm filing this masterpiece for future reference. Many thanks for sharing.
A fantastic amount of information put out, wonderful tips on keeping Mrs Erc at the top however; my plan is to travel in First Class with Mrs. IAH and I may have just learned she doesn't want me up there with her and I can save miles anyway!! Wait, I'm trying to use all my UA miles.
erc, great post and I've always wondered about Silver Seas. The cruises look very inviting, but not as much as you made this one seem. It's so much better to hear first-hand from someone who has actually been there, done that. And btw,
(Madmax you would have been proud as we dominated the fifties/sixties section (ps - McLintock )...glad someone got it.
My advice would be don't go Carnival now
Welcome back. You are officially the Insiders King of the Travelogue. Your trip reports are masterful, and have me for one, wanting to duplicate them in their entirety. When lining up my future travels from the Travel Gods, you may overhear me saying, "For this next trip, we'd like to order one of your 'ERC' specials... " Oahu, London, the Baltics - Let's go!
Thanks for taking us along for the ride and for taking the time to share your tips and tricks (and in such an engaging fashion.) Very much appreciated.
I'll let you get back to that post-cruise treadmill now... On deck - Belgique, Oui? Did someone say, 'Waffle?' 'Oh yes. I believe it was - You!'
