Oh what a Day!

34.65587 N / -7.89441 W en route to UK GIB

Today is one of our few remaining sea days. Once we reach Europe, we have a day in port planned for almost every day of the voyage. At present, we're headed to Gibraltar.


We were there two years ago with Eric and Beka, and we biked up to the top of the Rock of Gibraltar. Well, that's not happening tomorrow because I'm a lot older now.

In fact, today is my birthday! As my brother, Jack, likes to say, "Life is like a roll of toilet paper; the closer you get to the end, the faster it goes!" As you've seen, this trip has been a trip of a lifetime, so I'm glad I could squeeze it in while still "upright." While I'm not too excited about adding another year to my age, what made it quite a lot of fun this year was discovering that two fellow world travelers on TikTok, who are sisters, also have their birthdays today. [Brooklyntravelstheworld & Madisonworldtraveler] Wow! I only wish I was celebrating their ages rather than mine. :)

I enjoyed a lovely celebration dinner with Jeff, Juergen, and Agnes, who have joined us on this voyage from Germany. They thoughtfully gifted me a Starbucks mug from the Canary Islands to add to my collection. We dined at Izumi again, just as we did for Jeff's birthday. The spread of delicious sushi was absolutely mouthwatering!


To top it off, I indulged in a decadent chocolate martini with a toast to "Health & Happiness!"
