leaving penguins for fjords and glaciers.

hard to follow up a post of penguins eh? imagine how it felt leaving magdalena island and the thousand plus penguin residents behind. however, if there’s one thing to leave a penguin behind for, it’s a glacier. towering toothpicks of ice the height of our ship, and a sheet of bright blue ice crawling down from the clouds… how do you go wrong? you could have been on any of the previous cruises, that’s how you could go wrong. we had crew tell us this was by far the best weather they’ve seen this glacier in, and it was dark, overcast skies. plus, a few minutes before pulling up, we exited another torrential downpour. but to round the corner of rising fjords, and break through low cloud to see this, to see icebergs floating out at us. there’s no going wrong. but there is, however, going home…

watching a documentary on the world’s biggest cruise ship last night, about disembarkation day, there’s always those few passengers that cling to the ship for as long as they can before having leave. and that was us. sorry, holland america, but when you offer a product second to none, and fill a ship with folks you’ve created life long bonds to, can you blame us for hanging on to the bitter end? i didn’t think so. we were the last ones off. all of that, however, is a little easier to leave behind when you know your next stop is the w santiago, hotel. friends, meet (more) heaven on earth…
