Arctic Cruise

From Donna

Hello from somewhere near the equator in the South Pacific. So far, the seas have been mostly smooth so I haven’t needed to wear sea-bands. Yay! Today starts our 7th day at sea cruising the South Pacific on Seabourn Sojourn. What do we do for 7 consecutive sea days? Relax, eat, attend a lecture or two, socialize, enjoy the shows, relax, eat, and repeat. Want to see our suite?

Tomorrow, Seabourn Sojourn arrives in Nuku Hiva, Marquesas Islands. Don’t miss any of the fun. I’m sharing daily photos and posts on the My Itchy Travel Feet page on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. You can also look for the hashtags #SeabournSojourn or #SeabournCruise on social media.

Always Hungry update: I’m successfully following the eating program while on board. More about that later. For now, a sunny deck chair is calling my name.

From Nicole:

Well, just in case you were wondering, I’m still head over heels in love with Spain and all of its beauty. Last weekend, we headed up to Asturias, and once again, I was blown away by this green paradise. I’ve been to various towns in the region over the years, but this time we rented a beautiful orchard farmhouse near the village of Villaviciosa. The area is known for its apple cider and I can confirm its deliciousness. If you’re headed to Spain any time soon, make sure to make time to explore any part of Asturias. It’s all gorgeous!
