Finally!!! Let the adventure begin...in 2 days!

I finally received my flight details and E-ticket from my new employer Norwegian Cruise Lines. What a relief it is for it to be in my hands. After the interview was conducted, which was a month ago, I have been waiting ever so patiently for my medical and physical to come back in time to send me off on this once in a lifetime opportunity. Unfortunately I missed the first week of my job already. All of my forms did not come in time to allow me to set sail from Barcelona, the ships home port. But as the hopeful and optimistic person that I am, everything that was required came in time so I may join the cruise during one of its stops in port, Istanbul Turkey.

So this is what my next few days is going to look like. I have but just two more nights in Ottawa with my family and friends before I become a staff member on the Norwegian Jade, which has a main port out of Barcelona, Spain. I will be working on the ship as part of the Youth Staff team. I have to admit I am really excited, how can you not be? Getting an opportunity to travel throughout the Mediterranean for months at a time is a blessing. This is something that not many can say that have had the ability to do. Something that I can say I am proud to be a part of.

I have traveled to many parts of the world before this for jobs and for fun and have nothing but great experiences to take from them. I'm just really excited to get this underway. My flight leaves Ottawa this Friday March 11, 2011 at 5:00pmET. Soon I will be in wonderful places such as Barcelona,Rome, Athens, Istanbul, Alexandria, Valletta, Morocco, Canary Islands, Portugal, and more..

Tick tock, tick tock
