Welcome to Glenn's Blog!

Here I will periodically post random thoughts and stories about what's going on in my life and the world around me. As if anyone cared. But seriously, you've found your way here, so hopefully you will enjoy at least some of what I have to say, even if you aren't entirely interested in it. At the least, it should be a good way to waste time.

Sailing Away

It's 8pm on Tuesday, June 25. We've been on the ocean since just after 4pm, sailing north from San Francisco towards Alaska. This is almost become a sort of religious mecca for me, as it's now my 15th cruise overall and 6th on Princess, and 5th time to Alaska.

I guess you could say it kind of calls me. The beauty of the vast nature wonderland, the quaint towns, the peaceful serenity of a slower pace of life. Cruising, and visiting Alaska, are certainly great ways to escape the harsher reality of the fast paced city life engulfed by work and school.

It's nice to get away.

This is my first vacation alone with Connor. Well to be fair, it's not entirely alone as most of my family are also on this trip. But me and Connor are living the bachelor life in our own cozy ocean view stateroom. He fell asleep clutching his new box of Crayola crayons. I'm just watching the world slowly pass by and the sun slowly dip down into the horizon. Wild bachelors, we are not.

We'll see how much of a real vacation this is for me in the end. In the meantime, we're sailing away into the ocean blue. And oh yeah - we saw some whales spouting from our window a little while ago. Onward.
