    Great location - close to the Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International - free shuttle pick up and drop off to / from the airport. Close to strip malls and lots of eating options. Close to public transport, eg the Sun Trolley HOHO for $2-3 all day pass. Close to the cruise terminal for paid shuttle or taxi service. Re the hotel itself - large king size room, very clean, complimentary hot breakfast. Great customer service from the front desk

    ... very long day and night waiting around in airports unfortunately. They did eventually make it home safely. Amanda picked them up at the airport and dropped them off at home with their suitcases. Maureen's back is really sore due to her fall in Jamaica, but at least she made it home before it gave her much issue. Overall, it was a great trip. It is just unfortunate that flight troubles gave us a negative end to an otherwise great vacation.

    ... Oh well respect the weather is the theme of the trip, we have 6 days to get to Nassau to pick up Marg and Craig so lots of time...we want to avoid the 8 foot chop hehe. Once we get into the Bahama's and the protection of the small islands it will be much easier.

    Our chore list is pretty much done, it's a miracle. Early morning workout, shower then off to explore. What a great ...

    Originally we were to fly from New Orleans to Portland for the next leg of our epic journey, but the flights were just to expensive. So instead we decided to see if we could further our road tripping adventure and drive to another airport close by where the airfares to Portland were cheaper. Amanda worked out that we could drive another 800km over two days, end up in Dallas and save us a heaps of cash. I loved this idea as it would provide an opportunity ...

    ... in a jolly mood by the time we had the car in hand at noon. I should also note, after 7 years without the beloved Geo Metro, Mel is still acclimatizing to breaks in the 2000s and cars larger than the size of a golf cart, so she looked a bit panicked when she saw we'd be in a Chrysler 200. I of course can't drive, so was made first officer of navigation. With both of us a bit uncomfortable with our role and being in a US metropolis, ...

    ... C to actually go into Terminal C so, here I sit in Southwest’s Terminal B gate area. No matter. I watch and listen to the screeching children and think of grandsons Miles and Elliot who I will soon see and a smile crosses my face.

    The cruise was great. The ports and ship were familiar and seeing old friends while making new ones was a special treat.

    I am ready for ...
