Come Sail Away

I have secured my winter position upon the National Geographic Sea Lion. A small cruise ship made for ecotourism/exploring and set up with only 31 guest cabins. I will be a steward with a 6 month contract. I will be spending most of my time in Costa Rica and Panama, and ending my contract in Alaska. I have inserted my ships schedule below in case anyone is interested in where I will be headed.

The last blurb is about the ships time in the Pacific Northwest, and I am currently scheduled to be off the ship by then.

Currently hanging out in Dallas, but I should be home within a week or so.

Stayed with Vince in Kansas, and my friend Brian in Colorado. Had a lot of fun in both places. Kansas is lucky to have Vince, and I always feel lucky to be in Colorado. Was offered a job while in Colorado, and almost stayed, but I am currently a little more interested in not working at the moment.

Excited to treat myself to a new camera when I get home. I figure its the least I can do for missing my half birthday this year!

❤ you!
