Seeing the ship as you arrive at the port for the first time is always exciting but I know my cruise has begun when they hand me my sail & sign card
. That's when it begins, but the best feeling is walking on deck the first night of the cruise taking in the warm air and the smell of the ocean.
As far as I'm concerned, flying is a lot safer than any other form of travel and much quicker. Besides, when your time is up, it's up!Thats how I keep myself calm on an airplane.
Besides, as the plane goes quickly, I'm fine with it...ok, j/k
but really, you could get killed on the way to the supermarket to pick-up a gallon of milk. In fact, my grandmother who is 78 just broke her hip when she slipped on a wet floor walking into a convenience store last week. Who woulda thought? If my grandfather hadn't asked her to pick-up a gallon of milk that night, she would have been fine.
