So, this week we went and picked up our tickets for the big trip.
Here's a picture of our ship, the S. S. Tosca. Basically we're thinking of it as a hotel that moves from place to place, so we don't have to deal with the hassle of checking in and checking out each day. Plus it shd prove handy in case we need some down time.
It's still a while off, but this is really starting to feel real.
Back when we got to go to Hawaii in 2006 my three want-to-see goals were sea turtles, a volcano, and petroglyphs, all of which were more than satisfied, and of course much else besides.
For Egypt, it's the Pyramids, Sphinx, and some temples.
Really looking forward to it.
FURTHER DEVELOPMENTS (March 8th)
The Washington Post now reports a quarantine on a cruise ship on the Nile. Not our ship and not our tour company, but clearly something we'll have to keep a close eye on.
Thanks to Shelly for sharing the link.
