Default The Travel Bear

This is Joe “Cool” Cruiser aka: “The Traveling Bear” here, and I got the ideal of cruising from the Royal Caribbean Beanie baby. I am looking for a ride on your next cruise and would like to travel from Carnival ship to Carnival Ship my goal is to hitch a ride with a friend on every ship in the fleet and to travel to every port that Carnival visits. I represent any American who works hard to make a difference. I also have many family members who live in the great country of Canada. I love to cruise and I am looking for a ride and I plan to track my travel on the http://home.centurytel.net/cruiser/ I am currently looking for a ride somewhere, anywhere. I already have two cruises book the first is in February 2009, on the Miracle. I will be visiting Panama, Costa Rica, and Belize. In February 2010 I will be on the Fascination and will visit Key West and Nassau.

I want to live the life of a “Nomad” and I am looking for your help. I travel with my own Carnival passport, a travel journal, a photo album soon to contain postcards of places where I’ve visited, and a card with a web site address tracking my travels.

If you want to take me along just drop a line to: joe.cool@centurytel.net
and I will be on my way to your house with passport in paw. If you would like to give me a souvenir of my visit, please feel free. Also add any pictures, especially of me in front of site or event. When I travel to Panama I have already requested my picture be taken in front of the Gutan Locks.

Do you want to take Joe “Cool” Cruiser on your next Carnival cruise? Schedule a visit by visiting http://home.centurytel.net/cruiser

Hi there

I'm guessing your independently wealthy. I don't know too many people who would pay for a cruise for a total stranger.

I wish you luck on your quest.

Doesn't take up much luggage space. Some friends of mine did this with a stuffed horse via boating on the great lakes. That horse racked up some major boating time.

Joe Cool can bunk with me on the Blog2NOLA cruise! He can visit Cozumel and the other "port of the day".

We are going on the Imagination in January, we'd love to take him with us!

We have done this with a cat lovers board, we sent a cat beanie baby all over the country, and parts of Canada.

I think Dave the Wave should take the bear on his next cruise and dress it up in a speedo and carry him around. Should be a big hit with the ladies. Bob

This gives the old saying "pack me in your suitcase" new meaning.
