    San Juan, Puerto Rico

    March 10, 2018 in Puerto Rico ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    I write this with a bit of melancholy because it is the last port on this incredible adventure around South America. I feel fortunate that we have a home we love going back to, but the 60+ days we have spent on this trip have become a very special home-away-from-home. Nancy and Jim have been great traveling compadres and I’m sure that I have been working my “core” with all the laughing. We have all developed close relationships with many of the staff, some of whom we met when they were working on the Silver Whisper when we did the World Cruise 3 years ago.
    But, after visiting San Juan 3 years ago, we were looking forward to our visit here. Old San Juan is a lovely, colorful town with beautiful blue pavers on the narrow streets and alleyways. The terrible tragedy this island suffered 6 months ago when Hurricane Maria struck has not broken the spirit here. We saw many indications of the damage that was was inflicted here. I know a good portion of the island is still without electricity, but the locals are working hard to regain their tourism business.
    Jeff and I stopped into a little restaurant called “Istanbul” when we were here 3 years ago. Their Turkish food was outstanding and I have craved it ever since. I thought it was a stretch to think it survived time and the hurricane, but there was our tiny restaurant! Jim and Nancy were curious since I had been talking about it for so long. It did not disappoint. Fabulous hummus with fresh-baked pita,
    Imam Bayildi, Greek salad, Kofte, and their signature dish, Ottoman casserole. Paired with sangria, it was an unbeatable meal. We fell on our lunch so fast, we forgot to even take a photo to share! A great top-off to our wonderful trip.
    Two days at sea lay ahead of us, which will include packing, working on some projects we brought along, reading and getting ready to live real life again.
    Signing off for this journey!

    San Juan {Porto Rico}

    December 13, 2018 in Puerto Rico ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    Der Tag begann warm und schwül. Im Schiff sehr angenehm, draußen kurze Hose und T-Shirt.
    Kurz vor 15 Uhr passierten wir die Einfahrt in den Naturhafen von San Juan. Palmen winkten uns zu und die Raggae Band am Pool tat ihr übriges, um Karibik Feeling zu erzeugen.
    Wir haben uns wieder gegen eine geführte Tour entschieden und hatten uns bei Bacardi angemeldet. Zur letzten Tour um 16.30 Uhr. Mehr war in der Kürze der Zeit nicht drin. Gerne wäre ich noch zum Arecibo Observatorium gefahren (Kulisse für James Bond und Contact).
    Also schnell von Bord und auf die Hafenfähre, die uns zur anderen Seite der Bucht brachte. Victoria aus Washington DC hatte sich uns angeschlossen und wir nahmen zusammen mit 2 schwarzen Damen aus Vegas und einem deutschen Paar mit Kind einen Shuttle für die letzten 3 km bis zur Destillerie.
    Dort war alles top organisiert und wir haben viel über Rum gelernt (und einiges probiert) um es in der SBAR zur Anwendung zu bringen.
    Zurück in Old Town war es bereits dunkel. Ein kleiner Stadtrundgang vorbei an vielen Schmuckgeschäften und mit einem Blick in ein Zigarrengeschäft rundete den Tag ab. Wir ließen Subway und Burger King links liegen und freuten uns auf ein schönes Abendessen an Bord.

    Mit dem Schiff in die Karibik

    July 2, 2017 in Puerto Rico ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    Den Tag heute verbringen wir erst am Strand, dann geht's zum Hafen. Dort startet am späten Abend die Karibikkreuzfahrt :D
    Am Hafen selbst ist es traumhaft, viele Foodtrucks, viele Bars. Perfekt um die Zeit zu überbrücken.
    Abends gehts aufs Schiff. WOW. Was ein Koloss. Und hier gibt es gefühlt einfach ALLES, Restaurants, Bars, Pools, Shops,... Und verlaufen kann man sich auch ganz schnell... haben wir live erlebt :)Read more
