Gone Cruisin’

During the past couple of weeks, I’ve been busy arranging two back-to-back, spur-of-the-moment, trips to Bermuda and the Caribbean. And, thus, my temporary disappearance. The thing is we decided to move (back) to Asia by year end. So these are perhaps our last trips in North America in the foreseeable future. Just thinking about it, I miss the States already. Looking at the bright side though, there will be more adventures in Asia awaiting me.

The next couple of weeks, I’ll be swimming, snorkeling, and lounging in Bermuda, followed by cruisin’ the Caribbean sea and island hopping. It will be NY – Bermuda – NY – San Juan, Puerto Rico – St Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands – Barbados – St Lucia – St Kitts – St Maarten – San Juan, Puerto Rico – NY. The internet will be exorbitantly expensive on the ship @ 55 cents a minute! So I will be offline and disappear for a big while.

Let me end this post with one of my favorite Beach Boys’ songs, Kokomo.

Bodies in the sand 
Tropical drink melting in your hand 
We’ll be falling in love 
To the rhythm of a steel drum band 
Down in Kokomo

Aruba, Jamaica ooo I wanna take ya 
To Bermuda, Bahama come on pretty mama 
Key Largo, Montego baby why don’t we go 
Down to Kokomo 
We’ll get there fast 
And then we’ll take it slow 
That’s where we wanna go 
Way down to Kokomo…

    Wow! I hope you have a great time!! Those are going to be some great places to relax or adventure, as you see fit. :-)

    Back to Asia? Are you going to keep the blog? If you do, I will look forward to following your adventures there. I’ve read so many from travellers, it would be interesting to read from someone living there.

      Lori, thanks. I will definitely keep the blog but might not be able to update that often. I’ll bring you pictures and stories from Asia as a ‘local’. :)
