I was contacted by cruisemates, living in Australia, who are passing through our fair city enroute to a train ride through the Canadian Rockies, and on to the Ocean Princess for an Alaska cruise. So, I'm picking up the Aussie cruisemates at the airport, and have arranged a suite for them at a friends hotel, to enjoy their two night stay in Cowtown, Alberta.
I'd have had them stay at my hotel, but the room with the window was booked already<G>
I'm very excited. It's going to be another case of one of my favorite things about CruiseMates; meeting old friends I've never met before.
Kuki.. who highly recommends this mode of vacation.. meet Kuki, train through the Rockies, Alaska cruise
Hey Moose Man,
That is just wonderful of you to take the time out and arrange all that, I know he will just love this visit. It sounded like he was a little reluctant about the whole trip, but I'm sure he will have many stories to tell :-)
That's wonderful Kuki. I've met fellow cruiselovers from England, back when we were all on that board we won't talk about anymore. Cruisemates didn't exist then so we all had a good excuse. I know I've met some wonderful people on the internet, you and Donna included. I know parents of teens have terrible fears about stalkers on the internet, but when you get sensible and old, , you just seem to meet great people. I hope everybody really enjoys their visit.
I'd love to go coast to coast on a train in Canada! One of these days....
We're meeting our cruising friends ("Tracey" and family) for the first time next year on a cruise we're taking together. We've known each other for almost 2 years and never met! Can't wait to meet them and share in their love of cruising!
