One thing I noticed during our South American cruise was how many dogs were at each port. Here are some of all the different dogs I saw.. Buenos Aires, Argentina The dog on the top was “guarding” outside a church. His owner was off having a snack. The two dogs on the bottom were sitting outside a corner store waiting for their owner. The dog … Continue reading Dogs of South America!
We sailed around South America onboard the Infinity with Celebrity Cruises in December. I know it’s now February but hey, better late than never to write about it! December 22, 2017 – New York to Buenos Aires Our red-eye flight from JFK to Buenos Aires, via American Airlines, went without much drama. Due to the cost and unpredictable New York winter weather, we booked our … Continue reading Cruising South America (on the Celebrity Infinity)
It actually wasn’t that long ago I went to Texas. In fact it was only a couple of weeks ago (from Wednesday 28 June to Sun 2 July). As part of my new job (yes, I will post about that one day) I was sent to Dallas for a couple of nights so I decided to tack on Austin since I was in the ‘neighborhood’. … Continue reading #TBT: That trip to Texas
We booked our 11 night Southern Caribbean cruise with Celebrity back in July 2016 via http://www.crucon.com during one of their big sales. Celebrity Cruises and Crucon.com had an amazing deal for this cruise onboard the Celebrity Equinox because it was originally supposed to sail around Europe. So, when Celebrity canceled the Europe route, they had to fill the ship for its new destination: the Caribbean. Gambit … Continue reading 11 night Southern Caribbean cruise – Celebrity Equinox (May 15-26)

What I did remember from the trip, apart from buying a lot of ice cream, watching the hurricane come in overnight washing away the beach bar and … Continue reading Dutch or French? St Maarten or St Martin? 🍺🍻🥂🍷🥃🍸🍹🍾
We docked at Castries in St Lucia with the plan to get a tour from a local operator so we’d see parts of the island. We had decided to look for a tour with the Welsh couple we made friends with on board the ship. Once inside the terminal we had many options. Hmmm… that’s a huge understatement. There were loads of operators ‘fighting’ for … Continue reading 🚤 Sailing around St Lucia (with No Links tour)
We docked at Bridgetown, Barbados. The terminal was a bit more developed looking compared to the other ports we’d stopped at. The terminal featured a lot of little stores selling duty free items, souvenirs, cigarettes, ice-cream, and alcohol. The taxi and tour operators were available once we stepped out of the small shopping area. At dinner the previous night, our neighboring diners (a lovely couple … Continue reading Trekking around Barbados 🚌 🏖 ⛰
