Departing New York harbor. Times building center.
I’ve just learned that Internet access is 75 cents/minute on this boat and that it’s bandwidth constrained.
I’ll do my best.
I have always been happiest on the road.
Sometimes the road is asphalt, sometimes virtual, but this will be my first ever transatlantic crossing. This is a major road. Downton Abbey here I come.
For those of you who followed my recent road trip up 95, you know that I can’t fly because I had retinal surgery. That sucked, but this is now the second road trip as a result, and that doesn’t suck.
As background, this boat ride is on the Queen Victoria, a Cunard ship. It is known as the “winter crossing” because it’s the only crossing until May. I assume that’s the case because most people don’t want to be on the rough seas of the North Atlantic in the winter.
In fact, a friend who worked for Cunard told me this particular crossing has the highest margins because a lot of people spend the trip in their cabins, unable to eat or consume alcohol. God forbid.
Mom’s 88th birthday.
Back in New York.
Enjoyed documenting the journey on Tumblr.
First of many, I hope.
Next up: winter crossing on the Queen Victoria.
