Packing,Packing, and more Packing

I hate packing, maybe because I’m a procrastinator. Also I hate when I forget something. I’m trying to remember everything we could possibly need for this cruise. I know we can buy things there but it always seems overpriced. So here are a few things I’m packing:

I’m bringing a little medicine cabinet which includes Dramamine, Motrin, peptobismal, Off bug spray, Bandaids, and Anti-Diarrheal.

imageAlso I have Sunblock, bug spray, and mouth care items.

I’m almost done😅……off to do more laundry😬

Tips for planning a cruise

imageMy family and I are going on a 7 day Disney Mediterranean Cruise. We sail from Barcelona to Naples, Rome, Pisa Italy, Monte Carlo France then back to Barcelona. We decided to take a overnight flight so we could adjust to the time change. We arrive in Barcelona two days prior to sailing. Here are a few things we learned along the way.

  1. Planning: We booked our cruise a year out and made monthly payments until our deadline through disney. You could also book through Costco ( they were giving a $500 credit at their stores for booking with them…this may change). A travel agent could also help.
  2. Flights: I followed @airfarewatchdog, @thepointsguy, and we also stalked Expedia to try and find the best prices.
  3. Also make sure you have the correct travel documents. Our passports for the states have to be valid for 6 months after the cruise.
  4. Excursions: Most of our excursions we booked through Disney. Especially Rome because we heard the traffic is horrendous there. We didn’t want to miss the boat. You can also book excursions on your on through car/limo services. Of course you could always make it on our own with a taxi and guide book.
  5. Hotels: Since we are a family of 5, we decided to book a apartment through Hotels.com. Otherwise we would have to book to hotel rooms. We also searched airbnb another good site for apartment rentals either for a couple of days or weeks. We decided to fly in 2 days early so we could see Barcelona.
  6. Guide books: Rick Steves is my go to guide book. We used his books in Paris and London.  Very helpful.
  7. Disney navigator app: We will use this app on board for daily info, deck plans, dining options, and  Mickey sightings. There is free wifi on the boat.
  8. Phone Situation: We will probably buy a international phone card before we go just in case. We also plan on keeping our phones on airplane mode so we do not incur roaming charges.
  9. Currency: Call credit card companies to confirm credit cards will work overseas. I also have a money belt to keep my valuables safe. We will probably exchange some money to have for cabs and places that only take cash.
  10. Of course I’ll bring my camera to take plenty of pictures😊

Please let me know if you have any tips to share😊

“Tattoo… You?”

imageIn response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Tattoo….You?.”

So you remember that trip to Texas…. I got a tattoo. Funny thing is I wasn’t planning on getting a tattoo. I couldn’t understand why my husband got one and the fascination with having one was. So while in Texas, I was planning getting a nose ring. That is until I saw a video on YouTube. Totally freaked me out. So I slept on it. The next day when we went to the parlor, my friend went first and I. watched. Uhh, no thanks. So I got a tattoo of my initals instead on my foot which was painful!!!! But I like it. Boy was my family surprised😁!!!

liebster

What a great feeling to, in the middle of a chaotic food shopping trip today, look at my phone and see that I was nominated for the Liebster Award by adriennea3.  Earlier in the day I had seen that she had been nominated for the award and I was so excited for her as we have struck up a kinship from not only our blogging, but also our commentary.  The journey into the blogging world has fostered connections with amazing people who have empowering stories to tell, life-altering experiences to share, dreams to fulfill, and wisdom to impart.  I am grateful to adriennea3, first and foremost for showing me what can be possible and then challenging me to get there.  I am also grateful for her nomination as it is both a humbling and an empowering experience to be recognized by a fellow blogger who values what you are sharing…
