Ahoy mates! The Semester at Sea adventure begins as do most new experiences: with initial feelings of nervousness followed by excitement.
cooking, cleaning, and laundry, not to mention helping with classroom set up, computers, and oh yes, driving this thing.
Is there a midnight buffet? Fair question but no! It looks like a cruise ship but functions much like a college campus, with 2 dining halls that have set schedules along with a snack bar and restaurant when additional food and drinks are desired.
What is most memorable so far? Every time I look out a window I catch my breath – ocean as far as the eye can see in every direction. Sunrise and Sunset are awesome.
What is the biggest challenge so far? Trying to balance and hold yoga poses while the ship is constantly swaying. Or maybe it’s just me. Also, technology is my daily stressor but it can only get better from here.
Thanks for reading! More to follow as the internet allows.
