  1. It's going to be an epic trip, Terry! I'm looking forward to all of your great posts and hope the internet cooperates.
  2. We bought this DEET spray for last year. Didn't use it much, but it's a good deal. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00IK5CFCI/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o09_s00?ie=UTF8&th=1
  3. On the Spirit in March, we enjoyed Spaten poolside with our lunch.
  4. Wow, JP, I've been drinking mundane G+Ts for years, it appears. I will try your concoction! I heard from family that it was a little sticky up there. Sounds like our FLa. summer, but maybe not as intense.
  5. Belated Happy Birthday to Madame! Excited to hear about the next portion of your cruise, as Mrs. and I are on the Spirit from Venice to Athens on October 18. Our ports in common are Dubrovnik, Rhodes and Santorini. We're looking forward to all, but worried that Santorini will be a bust with over 11.000 cruise ship passengers there for the day. There is much concern that the cruise industry is overwhelming many ports and I fear we will experience this first-hand. The Shadow, however, looks like it will be the only ship visiting when you're there, so enjoy the uncrowded visit. Smooth sailing!
  6. Our goal in March leaving the Spirit was to be 100% Bvlgari until our October return. Looks like we'll make it!
  7. I second JP's praise. Your writing transported me to Tuscany for the day, even without photos. In October, we have arranged for five nights at an agriturismo/villa/winery in Chianti, and I felt as if I was already there. Looking forward to reading more of your wonderful descriptions of your journey.
  8. Great!. Thanks for the info. I'm looking at a 70-300 for our trip next year. Enjoy the rest of your trip!
  9. This is good advice, Rachel. We'll follow your lead and rent for our 2020 Cloud cruise from Dublin to Reykjavik. Thanks.
  10. Looks like you'll be buying the drinks! Oh, wait a minute. You're off the hook. I agree with you on the Silver Note Beehive. Interesting presentation, lackluster flavor.
  11. Outstanding! May I ask what camera/lens/settings you used? And where was the taken? We're sailing the Scottish Islands and Iceland next year. Hope I can do as well as you with the birds!
  12. Vivid description of last minuteness, Davey! Soon, you'll have a little nip and be dozing on the plane on the way to a wonderful Alaskan adventure. Cheers!
  13. Someday, I'll have one of those gizmos. The views from above are so fabulous.
  14. Can't wait to see the drone videos. enjoy the splendor of Alaska, Davey!
  15. I feel your pain. My dentist specializes in "wallet extractions"
