We arrived back in Venice tonight. It’s a very warm and humid evening (getting us ready for home). As we’d been in Venice already and had to pack (etc.), I couldn’t have imagined venturing out into the sweltering, sticky heat.

I plan to write my cruise review on the plane tomorrow and also organize most of the photos for uploading to the web site. This should save a lot of time (unlike last year’s Eastern Med cruise, which has yet to be posted).

The end of this cruise is bittersweet.

On the one hand, it will be great to get back to see Emerson, especially for Libby who’s not used to being away from her for any extended period of time. On the other hand, we (I) finally started to get a sense in the past few days of being ‘away’ and got into a vacation rhythm. Now, we’ll be right back into the mix (indeed, I leave Tampa leave for a business trip within 12 hours of getting home). Arguably, the enjoyment quotient might have been higher had we been away longer… or at least my batteries would have had more time to recharge. We’ll try to address this catch-22 over the next couple of trips by bringing Emerson along.

All in all, we’ve had a good time, added five new countries to the count, and got to spend some quality time together. That’s pretty good for little more than a week!
