Out of a Coma, 29 days to Go, and you wouldn't believe it if I told you...

Well Holy Shit... its a new blog entry.

I slipped into a coma there for a while, days blended into each other, blinking meant entire 10 days cruises were gone, and every click of the shutter button spiraled me further and further into a deep state of .....

...Blah...

catch my drift? Much has happened, obviously as every day on ships is a week and every week is a month and so on and what have you.... and yet, with 29 days to go before I meander home... I really have nothing coming to mind to mention...

Havent done many shore excursions, and nothing exciting at work either... I have come to the conclusion that the last 1.5 months of our contracts here we all tend to do the same thing: sleep during the times when we can get off the ship in port, do laundry instead of going to the crewbar, watching movies and hanging out in the corridor instead of partying, going to restaurants and internet cafe's in port rather than 4x4-ing or snorkelling or suntanning...

we are winding down. and we all feel it. 8 of the 12 or so photographers are all leaving within 1-3 cruises from each other, so we are ALL doing this...

Including tonight, 6 more formal nights to go :)

*insert sigh of relief here*

oh, one big thing before I go... (other than I promise that I will update a few times a week from now on... busy bit is out of the way), I am finally upgrading my camera kit.... and if you know any ounce of me in any way, you wouldn't believe what I am upgrading to even if i told you. And yes mom, for the record i will STILL be coming home with a significant amount of money saved up. WAY more than the 300 bucks last time :)

Til the next time, see y'all in the next cartoon!

Michael,
Looks like our first cruise on the Coral will be your last one. If we spot you maybe be can buy you and Grit a beer? Do you still take photos of the balcony folks from the Panama Canal locks? We will be looking for you. Good luck with the future plans.
