I just wanted to inform all the wonderful people who follow my blog religiously that I will be closing up after this magnificent world voyage. I have been blogging for about 10 years and have loved sharing my adventures around the world with you. It has gotten to the point where sometimes it is just way to difficult to post my blog. The last day in Ponta Delgado took over an hour and a half of Internet time to post. That makes for some very late nights. So, I have decided, for now, to stop blogging while at sea, unless I am asked, once again, to be a featured Holland America Line blogger. So what will I do in the meantime. I will continue exploring the world, taking thousands of photos and sharing them with friends onboard and publishing books. I just won't put my adventures out into the blogosphere.... It will take a little getting used to but I'll quickly get used to having all that extra time on my hands. If I go on some more road trips, I will certainly blog those adventures. I hope you have enjoyed my blog and you never know, I may start again some day..... Now, back to packing!
