Today is a bucket list come true.  This 180 day cruise will visit 5 continents, 36 countries, 35 islands, 91ports, 2 oceans and 16 seas.  There will be 14 overnight stays, 2 equator crossings and 46,925 nautical miles sailing east to west across 24 time zones.  Lisa and I are joining this cruise on day 19 in Los Angeles. We had previously cruised the first 19 day itinerary on previous trips. After spending two nights at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons in Beverly Hills we are leaving Los Angeles for Kauai.

From Kauai I travel to Oahu, Hilo, Marquesas Islands, French Polynesia, Samoa, Fiji and then onto New Zealand. More pictures and countries to come. My 161 day voyage required 5 Visas: China, India, Myanmar, Vietnam and Australia.

My children, Wendy, Eddie and Tracy have traveled with me through the years. This is our 2018 Las Vegas trip celebrating Wendy’s (left) 40th Birthday. Tracy (right) and I spent a week in Kauai for her college graduation trip.

After twenty five years of marriage and raising three daughters, Tracy and her husband left their professional jobs, sold their house and started traveling full time in their RV. She just published “Camper Chronicles Open Road” sharing their journey that changed their lives.

With over 30 trips to Disney since 1959, I have passed on my love of travel to my son, Eddie. His family’s 2018 annual trip to Disney. Tracy and her husband, Lee enjoy water falls while traveling through our National Parks.

We walked Rodeo Drive seeing a beautiful new yellow Rolls Royce, got a haircut for the trip and met 4 people who were from Ohio. Went to Hollywood Blvd. to the Chinese Theatre  and observed a star being imprinted with a new name.  There was an Oscar sitting on the star.

Puddy really enjoyed Los Angeles but it is time to board the ship.img_3604
