Where I stayed
Regent Seven Seas Voyager
The seas are a little rough today, but my sea legs are holding out
We met a very interesting and adventurous young woman today who is cruising to Australia with 3 suitcases and camping gear and plans to get off the ship and figure out how to live in Australia for a year. She has no home, no job and, apparently, very little money, but she has an Australian visa and that is all you need when you are 24 years ols and fearless. After a year in Australia, she plans to spend another year travelling various parts of the world, including a month long train trip through China. I admire her pluck and courage and wish I had not been quite such a responsible person when I was younger. There is something to be said about just taking off when you are young and have no responsibilities to anyone other than yourself. I am sure she will never regret this time in her life!
Although I am being somewhat anti-social, with my nose in a book all day long, I am slowly meeting people on the ship. Everyone has an interesting story and it is great to talk to people from other parts of the country and the world. Mom and I met a couple this afternoon from Highlands, NC and it felt like old home week. It is nice being on a fairly small ship where you see the same people and start to make friendships. I can see why people return to this ship year after year.
I am sure you are bored by now so I will sign off. I miss all my friends and family and wish you could all be here with me!
