Welcome to my personal blog to anyone I met during my recent tour of duty as Destination Lecturer aboard the Royal Caribbean vessel Radiance of the Seas! I met a lot of great people on this cruise and would like to thank everyone who took the time to attend my lectures, ask questions during them, and chat with me at other times during our voyage across the Pacific Ocean from Honolulu, Hawaii, to Sydney, Australia. I have started posting stories about the things I did and saw during and after the cruise and will post links to them here for anyone who is interested.
The Rocks Ghost Tour: This tour departed from right next to where our ship was berthed and I bumped into three fellow voyagers on it. It explored the gruesome history of one of Sydney's oldest, most colorful, and most haunted neighborhoods.
On the Trail of the Lord of the Rings: This piece looks at what we experienced on what was most assuredly one of the most popular tours available on the cruise.
Cruise Log: I have been incrementally posting my log of the cruise, which mentions many of the people I spoke with and got to know, on my TravelBlogue. Only the first five days are up but more will follow directly! Comments pertinent to your own experiences on the cruise are welcome.
Facebook: This is the best way to keep track of everything I am doing on a regular basis! I am there as "Michael O. Varhola," at https://www.facebook.com/michael.varhola, and will accept friend requests from any of you who send them.
More to come, so keep your eye on this space!
