It is evening here as I sit and listen to the rain on my tin roof and try to ignore my dog’s pleading eyes and wondering why we aren’t going out for our usual walk. I am reading up on some of the excursions I will soon be experiencing. I am booked with some friends on the Pacific Eden which sails from Fremantle through Indonesia to Singapore where we fly home. One of the excursions will be to Komodo and I’m smiling as I read what we should wear there. Hat, Sunscreen, Insect Spray, Bathers and Sun glasses. Its hard to comprehend while I sit here in the cold by a blazing fire. I can hardly believe that in 48 hours I will be setting out into a warm sunny climate and leaving Winter behind. Now I am going to try to finish packing so I can climb wearily into bed. It is a big job all this packing and culling clothes. I*t's a hard life, hehe

Oh Glen, I am SO jealous! You'll have a wonderful time. We did a cruise out of Singapore up to Thailand a few years ago. I love Singapore. And yes, it's been cold here too, but not too bad.

What a great cruise you will have - I've never been to that part of the world. Enjoy.

Hope you have an amazing time! Sounds like a great adventure! I took a vacation to Fiji once, and it was (and still is) one of the best trips I have ever taken in my lifetime! The only thing that could have topped that adventure was if I would have taken a few extra days or weeks to hop over to Australia for a visit!

We have been sitting by some roaring fires too. Hasn't it been cold and wet? Have a wonderful cruise. It should be great fun.

Rest well and enjoy your vacation, I agree that it's annoying to pack, but what comes after is great.
