Wifey's Big Adventure

Friday’s confession…

I’ve been keeping a secret. I wasn’t trying to be deceptive, ahem, but I wasn’t able to disclose any details until now.

The secret is I’m going on a trip. Not just any trip. A trip overseas… to cruise the Mediterranean Sea… for two weeks… for a show on the Travel Channel… that’ll air in January.

Gasp!

I know. I’ve pinched myself several times, and am happy to report that I’m not dreaming.

Madrid, Barcelona, Livorno, Cannes and Venice are just a few of the places that I'll visit when I board the plane next Wednesday with my sister, Nicole, and our girlfriend, Wanda, to take a cruisetour on Royal Caribbean’s Brilliance of the Seas.

While I’ve traveled to Europe before, I’ve never cruised the Mediterranean and can’t wait to experience it on this beautiful ship.

I wish I could take you all with me – no really I do – but I can’t, so I will make sure to blog as much as I can while I’m there. In the meantime, I’m scrambling to get myself, my wardrobe and Wifey’s real house in order so that Husband and the kids will function smoothly while I’m gone. Gulp!

Here’s a picture of the beautiful Brilliance of the Seas…



And a suite similar to the one I’ll be staying in…



I’m officially counting down the hours until I leave … 118.

Winks & Smiles,
Wifey

Congratulations- this is amazing news! You are going to have such a great time!

But, is it OK if I hate you? Just a little?

Wifey said...

LOL! Yes, join my family and friends including my husband and my father (they're the ringleaders to the "Hate Wifey and her fabulous trip" club).

That is wonderful! Congrats--so---do you work for the travel channel?

TerriRainer said...

WOW! That's so cool! Be sure to take pictures of the towels they leave folded in animal shapes on the bed (I think they do that on most cruise ships).

:) Terri

Thanks, ladies for the well wishes. No, I do not work for the Travel Channel, but I will be featured in a one hour show that they're doing on cruises. I believe my show is one of 12 shows ... I will make sure to share more details as I get them.

And, Terri, I will take pictures of the towels just for you - smiles!
