Around the World in 114 Days

I, along with my husband, am on a 114 day world cruise.  This is a first for us although we have taken one long 75 day trip a couple of years ago.  We will have mostly the same guests on board for the entire voyage.  Guess I better behave myself.

We’ve been sailing for a week and have stopped in Costa Rica with its monkeys and sloths and through the Panama Canal, always a nice scenic day.  Tomorrow we arrive at our first South American port of Manta, Ecuador.  Lima follows and then Easter Island on our way across the Pacific Ocean._DSC0321

We have some interesting ports planned- Pitcairn Island of “Mutiny on the Bounty” fame, New Guinea with its mudmen, Phuket, Thailand and its beaches, the red dunes of Namibia plus getting to meet Desmond Tutu when we are in South Africa.  Gambia and Senegal will be two new countries in west Africa for both of us.

Cruise along with us as we experience the southern hemisphere on the ms Amsterdam.
