European Vacation – Montreal

Apparently we docked at 1:00 am, so right after breakfast we got in the lineup for passport control. During breakfast, my other waiter greeted me in Polish and began brushing up against my shoulders while I was seated again.  He didn’t say anything about me not meeting him last night.  When I got up after… Continue reading European Vacation – Montreal

European Vacation – Stefan Batory – Day 9

It was completely calm today – but still cool and cloudy.  The ship slowed down to a crawl so we wouldn’t get to Montreal too soon, since we were ahead of schedule. We listened to our last morning concert after breakfast and then I ran into my Florida buddy Gengiz, who gave me his address… Continue reading European Vacation – Stefan Batory – Day 9

European Vacation – Stefan Batory – Day 8

It was calm and sunny this morning, but still cold.  We’re in sight of  Canada now – Newfoundland was in view all day.

European Vacation – Stefan Batory – Day 7

We woke up to a storm this morning and it was beautiful to watch.  Of course, that meant the ship was rocking even more, but it was still beautiful.

European Vacation – Stefan Batory – Day 6

It was calm and clear this morning, but still quite cool.  Karen got up and came up, but didn’t even stay long enough for breakfast before she was back in the cabin again. For a short time before lunch it warmed up enough that I could take my sweater off while in a sheltered spot… Continue reading European Vacation – Stefan Batory – Day 6

European Vacation – Stefan Batory – Day 5

It was pretty calm this morning, but still cloudy and cold.  Karen finally got up for breakfast and for the first time in a few days, we had a full table for breakfast. It didn’t stay that way for long and we were missing Karen and the Dutch guy for both lunch and supper. It… Continue reading European Vacation – Stefan Batory – Day 5

European Vacation – Stefan Batory – Day 4

We slept ok last night, but the ship was still rocking this morning.  Karen refused to get out of bed.  I had to get outside and get fresh air, so I left her and went up.  It was actually ok for sleeping in the dark with the boat rocking, but I simply couldn’t spend the… Continue reading European Vacation – Stefan Batory – Day 4
