Another day in Sydney

Hello, g’day, aloha, etc. 🙂 I didn’t get a chance to post yesterday as it wound up being a bit busy, and I got tied up with work towards the end, so here goes! Yesterday I decided to check out one of the attractions in the area, and opted for the Sydney Aquarium which is…




Sydney Day 3

Back again! Today is Day 3 in Sydney, and this is going to be a quick one since I’m watching a movie as I type, and getting tired :p Today I went on the free walking tour put on by Peek Tours out of Customs House in the Circular Quay – Craig took us on…




Australia – Day 2

Well it’s good evening for me, good morning for most people reading this – or I could just say “g’day mate” and get the message across. Whatever works for you I guess 🙂 Today is Day 2 in Sydney, Australia – or my first “full day”, though yesterday felt pretty full. Didn’t get as much…




Where’s Ryan?

I’ve changed “The Trip” page to give you a bit of an idea where I am at the moment, and provide some fun stats. Check it out 🙂 Also FYI, the “Counters” page has been updated! 6 time zones so far…



Sydney, Australia

G’day, Mate! I was up at 5am this morning, up on Deck 10 in rather cold weather to see us meet the Pilot to guide us in to Sydney, and get some pretty stunning pictures of our arrival into the harbour. The sunrise was a true sight to see, and it was amazing to see…



THE QUEST

If you’ve been on a cruise with Royal Caribbean, you know what I’m talking about. Yes that’s right – it’s the strictly 18+ Adult Scavenger Hunt called “The Quest”. I had a blast with this one on the Independence of the Seas last time, and this one was just as much, if not more, fun….




Another day, another zip line

Ladies and Gentlemen, Good Evening. And welcome to My Blog. Today was a very busy day, and quite enjoyable. So much so, that I decided I really must blog about it. So here I am. And here you are – reading about it. How exciting is that?? For you avid readers, you may recall that…




A cruise update

Salut from the Isle of Pines! An absolutely stunning island, and we were very lucky to get some SUNSHINE today! The last two stops have been a bit cloudy, even rainy yesterday, but today when I went out this morning it was drop dead gorgeous! Very pleased with the weather, very pleased with the island….



Bula from Fiji

Bula everyone! Yes, that’s the way to say “Hello” in Fiji… I’m sitting in an internet cafe just inside of the port today, unfortunately it’s still pretty crappy out so I haven’t really ventured too far into Fiji. Too bad – but it might get a bit brighter in the afternoon. Local time is now…

Where does the time go…

When I went to sleep last night, it was Tuesday, October 2nd, 2012. All was well and right with the world. I woke up, and it’s Thursday, October 4th, 2012! No – I didn’t get drunk and sleep through the day (ha ha), last night we crossed the International Date Line, and as a result…
