"As we were traveling among the huge rock formations towering over our heads, all I could think was “Oh God, please, no earthquakes right now.”

The sun was starting to sink below the horizon. Luckily the cabin steward had arranged a bucket of ice as requested. I looked across the cabin at my darling wife and inquired whether a drink was in order. She wryly nodded, "yes please." It was my cue to serve up a Jim Beam and lemonade on the rocks so graciously provided by our cabin steward. Man its so easy top to go to dinner feeling good. Why is everyone else so sad?

It was a dark and stormy night; the rain fell in torrents — except at occasional intervals, when it was checked by a violent gust of wind which swept by the ship (for it is on Princess that our scene lies), rattling along the top deck, and fiercely agitating the scanty light of the lamps that were strung from bow to stern that struggled against the darkness.

He didn't really say, "It was a dark and stormy night . . ."   Did he?

"I amused myself watching dozens of visitors pose in front of the geyser, smiles frozen on their faces, while their companions kept their fingers ready on their camera’s shutter, just waiting for Strokkur to come alive. I, of course, had to do the same.  And about one thousand pictures later, I finally got a good one."

"People sang songs and formed human pyramids, some 15 to 20 people high."

"The energy of the crowd exploded as well, with collective “oooooh” and “aaaaaah” exclamations punctuating each shower of shimmering explosions."

Mr. Rob Roberts, Manager of Princess Shore Excursions - Europe & Exotics, posted his blog about visiting Ancient Sites and Great Cities of the Mediterranean.  I think he did a fine job telling his story.  Here's the link:

"The sense of history was palpable as we walked, as was an undercurrent of tension given the thousands of years of unrest that is an integral part of the place."

"We ended our stay decompressing in Tel Aviv, shamelessly returning to Max Brenner for another dose of chocolate decadence."

The first sentence is actually a very accurate description of what I have felt in Jerusalem.

"Some cathedrals are quiet, somber places, but in Santiago, the cathedral resonates with energy and enthusiasm, the culmination of days and, for some, weeks of exertion, anticipation and fulfillment. "

"Sometimes, I close my eyes and I can still feel my foot slip out of my shoe as it sunk in mud, hear the downpour of the rain in the jungle and see the bright smiles of the local children."
