Welcome to my new cruise blog

Hello everyone!

Chet and Cynthia Janssens

I am very excited about this cruise blog, something I have wanted to do for a long time and now I have found the proper home for it. All Things Cruise is going to be a terrific cruise site and I am proud to be a part of it.

There is so much going on in the world of cruising

that there will be much to talk about. As indicated in my biography, my next cruise coming up is to the Galapagos Islands and already I have learned that the first challenge to blogging on a cruise is that you have to have an internet connection. Most of the time, I will have no such connection while in the Galapagos.

So….my solution is that I am going to write my blog postings day by day and then post them day by day the week after I return. Makes sense and should work fine…

I first visited the Galapagos Islands in 1995 aboard a hulk of a sailboat called the Encantada. I was with a group of friends from the Society of American Travel Writers (SATW) and we were on a post-trip after the Ecuador convention. We were spread out amongst many vessels, but I landed on this clunker…and a clunker it was. We didn’t even have hot water for showers for three days! And it never sailed, just motored from island to island.

But still the trip was fun, educational and enlightening and I am so anxious to share the experience with Chet…my loyal hubby and TC (traveling companion). We love wildlife and this is one of the ultimate wildlife trips.

We will be sailing for seven nights on a motoryacht ( the Eric, the Letty or the Flamingo 1) operated by Ecoventura, (www.ecoventura.com). These yachts each hold just 20 people. I will be posting photos from the trip so you will be able to see the ships and these fascinating islands. Right now I am reading up on Charles Darwin and his experiences in these islands.
