Ships Ahoy!

My First cruise, overlooking Manhattan

Since I can remember, travel has been something I had always wanted to do. When I was younger, the idea of it coming to fruition seemed far from my reach. Over time, material items took precedent and the hoarding of all sorts of items took over. I can only imagine the things my money had gone to.
