52 Projects is an adventure in discovery. Every week, for 52 weeks, do something. Something you’ve never done before. Something you’ve always wanted to do. Something that scares you. Something that inspires you. Something that inspires others. Something that tickles your fancy. Something that caught your eye. Something that just popped into your head. It can be big. It can be small. It can be whatever you want it to be. Find out how doing something can lead you to discover things about yourself, your world, your God. Then, come here on Sundays and share it with others. I'll write about mine here, you write about yours on your blog, then use the tool in my post to link to your something. Please feel free to jump in and participate anytime throughout the year!

Week 32: taking a cruise

This week's 52 Projects comes to you one day early. In about 2 hours, we are leaving for a 5 night cruise to Bermuda on Royal Caribbean. I've never been on a cruise ship and I've never been to Bermuda. I guess I'm killing 2 birds with one stone this week. I actually have fond memories of driving my grandparents to the Queen Elizabeth. One of my prized possessions is a little blue sailor doll that they got on one of their stays on the QE11. They loved to travel and took many cruises. There we were standing in the parking lot area waving them off and now it's my turn to stand on the deck as we embark on a Caribbean adventure.

I'm not sure that I would have chosen a cruise for a vacation. I've always had a fear of sea sickness and I'm one of those people who likes to be free to roam the land. But last Christmas my parents handed my brothers and I each an envelope with a gift of a cruise to Bermuda. I'm still a little nervous but really looking forward to this new experience. There will be 10 of us in total. What a great chance to catch up with my family and enjoy some great meals and land excursions to Bermuda.

We discovered that it costs 65 cents per minute to use the internet while we are on the cruise. So we decided to leave our lap tops behind and hence the reason for posting this early. Besides, I really want to get away from everything, including the daily routine of internet addiction.

I hope everyone has a wonderful week ahead. I'll be posting more about the trip when we return next week.

Bon Voyage :)))


  1. I hope you have a wonderful time, Jane. I think you will! xxO

  2. Hey, I'm going on a cruise too. Getting on boat tomorrow in fact. But I have the project set to go up tomorrow. Once it's up, I'll link it. I think I will get online a bit. HAVE FUN!!

  3. I'm SO SO jealous!! We tried to do a cruise for a holiday this year and came to the unfortunate conclusion that we couldn't afford the one we wanted to do. :( So, we are going to do it for our honeymoon instead!

    Have a wonderful, wonderful time!

    PS. D said to say "That isn't a project. Forfeit! Forfeit!" LOL
