The Spa Twins take on the Atlantic
This is first time I have written a trip report. My Best Friend Forever, Stephanie and I have traveled many times and have had fun times, but I just never got around to writing about our trips. Since this is such a long trip, we knew we had to write about it. Too many funny things happened and we have so many memories to share.
Me……. Terry married to a wonderful guy for over 41 years. We have three grown children and five handsome grandsons.
BFF………Stephanie she has two children and four grandchildren. Two handsome boys and two beautiful girls.
We have known each other for about 22 years. I tried to sell her encyclopedias then jewelry and after that we just kept connecting and then started traveling together. First on shopping trips, then to see plays in New York, then for about ten years going down to the shore. Those were fun trips but when a lot of the stores closed up, we decided we needed to find a different place to travel to. I knew Stephanie went to Walt Disney World but that was it. She had nicknamed me Tinker Bell when she was writing for a local newspaper and I went to town buying lots of things with Tinker Bell on them, especially t-shirts. So she had me hooked early.
When she brought up the subject of traveling down to WDW in 2005, I thought that would be lots of fun. We spent nine fun packed days wearing matching t-shirts every day. I think I surprised her because I was up for the challenge. Since then, we have gone down once a year. In 2008 and 2009, we went on a four day cruise on the Disney Wonder and loved it plus spent a few days before and after each cruise in WDW. We had a veranda and spent a lot of time on it each cruise. So when she found out about this fourteen day Transatlantic trip and we could celebrate turning 60 on it, it just seemed right. So we started planning for this trip almost two years ago.
A lot goes into planning the perfect vacation in WDW and one thing we have learned is that we cannot do everything. We got to be flexible enough to change plans if we needed to. We did a lot of price comparing so we knew when the meal plan would work and when we just needed to nosh around. This trip was going to be THE BIG ONE so we wanted to do it right.
So here we go……………..I hope you will stick around and follow The Spa Twins as we sail the Atlantic!!!!!!
