A Simple Need to Cruise

It’s a damp and cold day, you are maybe at work or at home browsing the internet when suddenly you find yourself viewing webcam’s for ships that are positioned all over the world.

Depending on the angle you can see ocean, people sunbathing or even catch a glimpse of the destination they are visiting on that particular day. Sounds fantastic does it not? Well, as much as I love these little innovations I despise them too.

The problem I have is that on those damp and cold days I find myself viewing them thinking “I wish I was on that ship” and what happens? I go and book a cruise!

Yes they are a great little marketing tool and clearly by my reaction are doing the job the cruise lines want them too but I really do need to stop looking at them.

Between June and December 2011 I spent exactly 6 weeks on land between cruises. I returned home on December 15th from my last and I really am starting to feel the pressure. I have 47 days to go until my next cruise and I literally cannot wait.

I read recently about a lady who suffered with “land sickness” and I am convinced I too have the same condition. Ok, I’m not being entirely truthful, I don’t have any symptoms other than wishing I was at sea but is that not enough?

I laugh at friends I know who have obsessions with designer shoes and handbags, there excuse for purchasing more is always the same “I just couldn’t help myself” well I say the same thing too about cruising but I still get looked at like I have been beamed in from another planet.

I have no idea what the point of today’s blog is. I feel it’s possibly turned into another rant but hey what can I say, I get stressed sometimes when I have been torn away from my cruise ships for so long 😉

The impressive towering walls of #framlinghamcastle in Suffolk. A rich piece of #englishhistory built in the 12th century by Roger Bigod, Earl of Norfolk. It was also the inspiration for the song 'Castle on the Hill' by Ed Sheeran. #travel #history The most beautiful #bird I've ever come across. He knew he was gorgeous! I met him in #GranCanaria but can't remember what kind of bird he is - do you know? #cruise #travel #wildlife #travelblogger
