We did have everyone asking us to look at their tours as we walked the pier (so, if you did decide you wanted to do some sort of tour at the last minute, they were definitely there!) But as soon as...

We've now had 2 amazing September Alaska cruises (2007 and 2018) - we don't mid the rain and have all the right gear, but both trips were amazingly sunny. We had actually thought about trying to go...

I have never been able to wear Skechers - not enough support/sturdy enough. I've tried many styles over the years. I bought my first pair of fitflops last year - a loafer sort of style with a tassle...

It might not be "brand" related but certain brands are better known for comfort (and marketed as such) and certain brands have a better reputation for lasting longer, as well. Also, different brands...

I have SO MUCH respect for anyone who speaks more than one language, much less lives their daily life in a language that is not their first!! I was, at one time, more or less fluent in a second...

Where were you sailing? I've not experienced severe dryness on a cruise, but I haven't cruised in the Caribbean since 2006. I do have more dryness at home in the winter than in the past (increased...

The only "best" is what you like that works for your feet. If mephisto fit you, why not try a non-sandal style?

I have a few brands that fit me nicely most of the time - Ecco, Taos, abeo, keen...

I was going to add that you can often find Wusthof at discount stores like Home Goods/TJ Maxx, on sale at Macys or Williams-Sonoma. And then I got an email from Haute Look (Nordstrom Rack) with their...

We had good coverage with Verizon in the larger ports (Ketchikan, Juneau, Sitka), not so much in smaller places (Wrangell, Haines, Icy Strait Point). It was nice for me to be forced to shut...

Wow - we were in Juneau the day before (Sept 8 on Sojourn) and the weather was great- no wind, a little light rain on and off. Forget a week - it can take less than an hour for the weather to change...
