We spent today at sea. It was a bumpy ride back to Palma de Mallorca, Spain. But an invitation to tour the bridge made us forget about our motion sickness for a little while.
“A rough ride across the Mediterranean”
The highlight of this trip so far — other than interviewing the voice of SpongeBob, which I’ll do tomorrow — has been visiting Pompeii and Mt. Vesuvius.
Oh, wow. This was totally worth it.
“A hot time in Pompeii, Italy”
When we pulled into port in Civitavecchia this morning, everyone wanted to know what we planned to do in Rome.
“Nothing,” I said, trying to not sound like a contrarian. “We’re going the other way.”
“All roads lead to Civitavecchia, Italy”
Here’s what we saw just moments ago as we pulled out of Livorno, Italy, on the NCL Epic. It was one of those postcard-perfect summer days on the Mediterranean coast when all you really want to do is hang out and do nothing.
And that’s pretty much what we did.
“Leaving Livorno, Italy, with a little jetlag”
This is the view from our cabin aboard the NCL Epic. Nothing but the ship’s wake and dark blue Mediterranean as far as the eye can see.
“Aboard the Epic with kids … and cartoons”
Here we go!
For the last week, I’ve been telling you about my new family travel site, Away is Home. Today — right now — we’re setting sail on our first adventure: a Western Mediterranean cruise on NCL’s Epic.
“Are you ready for the real Western Mediterranean?”
