Waiting for limo

All packed and ready to go. The A/C is turned to high downstairs so we are upstairs filling in time, checking emails, and now sending this Blog. We fly Houston-Amsterdam and then Amsterdam-Istanbul where we go immediately to the ship. I sure hope our luggage makes it to Istanbul with us. This is the first time we have not arrived in the departure city one day ahead of departure.

Bye for now folks ...... I wish you all a good month

The Birthday Princess

Last night Katie and Charlotte were at our home for their April 30 birthday. Here you can see how happy Charlotte is with her Princess Ariel dress-up set. Charlotte was really thrilled with the gloves because she saw the Princesses wearing them when she was at DisneyWorld last week. It was a fun night for the birthday girls.

Birthday celebrations

The airplanes are flying and it seems we will be on our way on Tuesday. However, today we will celebrate Charlotte and Katie's birthdays, both are April 30. It will be nice to see family before we leave and share in their birthdays early ..... um chocolate cake or cupcakes?

Tomorrow I will start my packing. Batteries are charged and the cameras/iPod are ready to use. I will use my SLR because we are on a cruise and I am not backpacking. I am taking my camino point and shoot as a backup so there is a good chance I will have photos from the places we visit.

Getting ready....

This has been a week of doubt and now hope. The Eyjafjallajokull, Iceland, volcano blew its top after 200 years. This eruption has created havoc for airline passengers around the globe. Today airplanes are flying over Europe once again. This gives us hope that we might arrive in Istanbul in time for the cruise on April 28. Tomorrow I will charge the batteries on my cameras and iPod then make a list of essentials needed for the next month.

I am not sure about Blogging from the cruise but I will create the pages and submit them when I can, even if this is after we return.
