Blogging the June 16th Mediterranean Cruise (until we can't type anymore!)

Hey all! We're finally here! We've adjusted pretty quickly to the new schedule and are probably 5 pounds heavier already. We're staying at the AC Barcelona and we're right now waiting for our bags to be picked up to be brought to the ship! Yay!

We've started blogging the whole thing...we really want to keep up with it for the whole trip, it'd be nice to have a record of such a momentous vacation!

The blog is:

http://largelyignored.com/


and the Flickr set is:

http://www.flickr.com/photos/unsupervised/sets/72157600352511825/


We've got the following up so far:

Still to come: Our day at Disney Studios Paris, and our return home (which is written up, waiting to be transcribed from my notes).

I've got a ton of pictures to sort through, which will be my final task after I've finished all the recapping (they won't fade, but the memories will, unfortunately). I'll add in pictures to the posts that don't already have them, so they can appear longer than they already do!

Please note: Some of the language is PG-13, so cover the kids' eyes (and maybe your own) when necessary.

Thank you so much for sharing your blog! I got online this evening hoping that someone on the cruise that sailed today would be posting or blogging.

Bon Voyage!

Thanks everyone!

We just added two more:
There's also a bunch more pictures in the above Flickr link, a lot more than gets included in the posts, if you're interested.

Thanks everyone! The kind words help me keep writing (along with my dedication to finally chronicling something properly)! I'm flattered by the compliments, keep 'em coming!

I'm exhausted after the long day, so I've managed to upload all the photos, give each one a recap, and get started on the post before I started to fall asleep at the keyboard. I'll finish the recap tomorrow morning while Lisa takes forever to get ready and I'll post it then.

For now, enjoy the photos. There are a lot, because Segesta and Erice were stunningly beautiful. If you just want to go somewhere and soak in the countryside, take this excursion. You'll spend more time looking at the view than the sites you're supposed to be seeing.

You can see the pics here:

http://www.flickr.com/photos/unsuper...7600352511825/

Newer pics are towards the bottom.

I was dissapointed that the F Bomb was dropped twice in your 2nd day blog. I discontinued reading after running across this for the 2nd time.
