If you’ve been with me since 2010, you’ll recall our cruise from Queensland’s Gold Coast to see whales. Yes, we saw whales … been there, done that, didn’t buy the T shirt, because it was a bit garish for my tastes. But, what I didn’t do was ‘tick the box’. I wrote at the time there wasn’t any crossing off the list; I’d go on a whale cruise the very next day, if it was offered.
Well, in fact, I had to wait six years … but, when we get to Juneau on our ‘Inside Passage’ cruise in May, we’ve booked a whale-spotting trip. The operators say they’ll refund us $100 if we don’t see any whales, so I’m hoping to get some better photographs and video than I have at present.
And, that’s not all. We’ve already booked our holiday for 2017! We’ll be cruising around South America, and they say there’s a very good chance we’ll see whales as we round Cape Horn.
I wonder if we’ll get close enough to Antarctica to claim we’ve been there? If we do, we can claim to have visited all seven continents!
