And she’s off

It’s an exciting day for my friend Andrea! She’s the friend who also got a position with Carnival Cruise Lines, but she’s starting her contract this month! So, she’s flying out today to Orlando for training and then she’ll be on-board a ship soon. We plan on skyping every week so I’ll get all the details of the cruising life before I even leave home! I will most certainly be updating you all on her adventures as I hear about them!!

Customs

In customs, travel, US on September 1, 2011 at 8:35 pm
Well I’m in the Seattle airport awaiting a connecting flight. I know what you’re thinking, and yes, I’m off again. I’m headed back to florida for a little bit, I’ll be back on the island again by Monday. I just have to talk about customs agents for a minute because I think they don’t get enough credit. Everyone complains about them but I love them. I’ve never had a bad customs experience. Even today, I was selected twice for random extra screening and all of my customs agents were great. The first one joked and laughed with me and we had a lovely time. I think that they have a job that sometimes sucks but if you are happy and co-operative with them, then in my experience they are the same way with you. Call me crazy but I always have fun going through customs. And I got a special screening test today that I’ve never had before, they wiped my hands with a gun powder residue pad and then scanned it!! It was just like CSI, I was so excited!!
