Ten Days and Counting!

Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada
Got that little business of my fifty-something birthday out of the way yesterday and now it's on to full out trip preparation. As we learned on our first retirement trip 2 years ago, a lengthy cruise requires a well thought out packing strategy. The excursions have been largely planned out, although a last minute cancellation/change to one of our ports of call will require some additional research.

Now it's a matter of getting all those things that I've been carelessly tossing into my open suitcase in preparation for departure to fit AND be within weight restrictions . Always a challenge.

The countdown is on, both to departure, and to when I can do our 24 hour advance check in with hopes of snagging 2 of those sought after "premium seats" in the bulkhead and exit rows. You know, the ones that we're too cheap to pay for! Stay tuned...the best is yet to come!
