The Cruise to Come

In Uncategorized on August 8, 2013 at 5:07 pm

Well it’s that time again……
Can you guess?
Night shift is upon me!

I’m very excited, for several reasons.

1) I’m more than halfway through my contract and to be honest, I’m ready for a break from the hectic day shifts. Night shift gives you a chance to hide from the world a bit, rejuvenate, work quietly by yourself. Of course there are guests still and you can often get quite busy, but it’s just not like day shifts.

2) DAYS OFF IN PORT!!!!!! We have some amazing ports and I’ve been planning how to spend my days all week long.

One port I’m very excited about is Warnemunde. I’m trying to get on an excursion. One that goes to several concentration camps in Berlin. Now this is an excursion that everyone has an opinion about. Some people, like I, are fascinated by history, and have a desire to experience everything, even the not so pretty parts. Some people that I have talked to believe that it would be too overwhelming for them, and I can totally understand that point of view. To be honest, I’m not entirely sure how I will feel about it when I get there, but I know its something I feel the need to see.

I have many other things planned for this week, but this is the only one that has such somber overtones. I will keep you posted on all my adventures and how they change my perception of the world.
