I am Alive!!

It’s been a long time since I’ve written, but I promise I am still alive. Currently I’m in Cagliari, Sardinia, Italy. It’s an island somewhere in the Med. Life is good but I’m so ready for my contract to be over. I have this cruise, and then 2 more cruises, and then the crossing cruise back to Ft. Lauderdale. So I’ll be taking a flight up to Wisconsin on November 10. I’ll have just over 2 months vacation and then back to the Volendam where I will join it in Hong Kong. I’ll be there in Asia for about 3 months and then in Alaska for 5 months. So that’s the lowdown on the next year of my life. Not sure what’s in store after that, but yeah, we’ll see. I think planning one year at a time is good enough. That’s all I’ve ever known anyways throughout my life!

I have a lot of photos to upload, but right now I am sitting on a curb with some free wifi and it’s not really comfortable, so I’ll upload photos later. I’ll be in Naples in a few days where I’ll be able to sit in a terminal, so expect some photos to be uploaded on September 30th. Ok..now I have a deadline so it should happen! Of course if pirates come scare the captain away from Naples then I have an excuse. 😉

Alright, well that’s about all for now.

    This must be the life dreams are made out of! I have just bought myself my 1st dslr. I have been looking for careers of photography to venture into and I landed on this site, it seems as destiny has played me a card and I am up for the challenge!

    Until a few hours ago I did not know that such a field existed within photography, how I came to find out is that I got an email from a friend about vacations on cruise ships, that’s an entire different story.

    However I would like to know how you got into it, what you studied and taking this as a career path. How did it all start out for you?

    Hi there,

    I started with a degree in photography for college, and then from there I just did some research about photography career paths and found cruise ships. It was an amazing 3 years of my life.
