Home again, home again

Home! And very well welcomed (and fed, yay), and starting to catch up on alone time (cruise ships are hard on introverts, it turns out).

While I was gone someone set my state on fire. :( Other than that things seem to have toddled along nicely without me.

There will be pictures and trip journal eventually, mainly about the bits on land as those were the fun parts. (The bits on water... well. I will not be going out of sight of land very possibly ever again, will definitely not be going on water I can't see across any time soon, and am frankly suspicious of water I can't jump across at the moment.)

Suggested interesting topics have not been written about, as most of that time I thought was going to be good writing time turned out to be good lying down and moaning quietly time, or in some cases good having dreams of nearly fever-quality weirdness time. Seasickness bad.

Welcome back - and thanks a lot for the postcard!

You're welcome! Postcards were fun. I think the last batch (maybe two) haven't arrived yet. You got an early one, because I figured Norway was close enough to be boring. :)

Oh, I'm so sorry you got seasick!! I'm lucky enough to be one of those folks who doesn't, but I hate nausea more than almost anything, so just the thought of it makes me cringe.

Yeah. I should have expected it, really; I get motion sick in cars and planes and little boats, when there is greater-than-normal turbulence, but I was under the impression that cruise ships were big enough that they didn't move around much. Not so!

It's very good to have you home, too. We missed you!

Aww; I was looking forward to those! Bleah, indeed.

Does not going out of sight of land ever again include plane flights, or just on ships?

Aww; I was looking forward to those!

Well, they may well get written eventually; I do still have a train ride and all.

Does not going out of sight of land ever again include plane flights, or just on ships?

Planes are okay. When planes are out of sight of land, they are very high up, and that is generally safe. Also they are not out of sight of land for very long, even on these trans-Atlantic flights. (The east coast of Greenland looks totally awesome from 38,000 feet!) And the miserable part will be at most a few hours long in any case. Wee little prop planes that are all wobbly and turbulence-ridden may be avoided for longer flights, but jets are definitely fine.

Oh, that sounds less than optimal. Glad you've got your feet on more solid ground again.
