A long overdue Port Post is finally here! The first Port Post I did journaling the splendid Mediterranean cruise that my husband Christian and I did in April was about Barcelona. That’s right here in case you missed it and are curious. Barcelona was from where our cruise set sail, then on we went to the south of France!
This is the first post of what I plan to be a handful more about each port that my husband Christian and I had the pleasure of sailing to a few weeks ago during our Mediterranean cruise. It was our first cruise ever and a smashing hit!
Having backpacked Europe back in college, I actually had more European cities under my belt than my own European husband! I’d been itching for years to let him see for himself the splendor that Barcelona, Venice, Rome, and many more European cities have to offer. Pair that with wanting to whet the “what is the hubbub about cruising, anyway?” appetite, we decided that Norwegian Cruise Line’s Spirit, touring all around the Mediterranean in April, would be a grand idea.

Seattle, Washington. I first fell in love with this city on the big screen. One of my favorite films is the beautifully B-rated Assassins, an early film of hottie-hot-hot Antonio Banderas’s, and it’s set in Seattle. I saw the film, definitely saw the hunky Spaniard, saw the big city of Seattle, and then I kind of saw myself in the film’s setting, minus the whole shooting thing. Somehow, from that, a desire to visit Seattle had been born. (more…)
