Feeding the Fish

March 30th, 2009

When you dive, feeding the fish means getting sick. The water yesterday had 5 - 6 foot waves which makes it hard on the stomach, and to stay on the bottom of the ocean. There is nothing worse an really cool as getting sick under water. The fish that swim right up to your face for “a bite to eat” almost make up for the fact that you are getting sick under water.

The water was a lot calmer today and we had a great couple of dives. We are us waking up from a nap. Yes, even I the one who stopped sleeping, enjoyed a nap. It is a wonder what a vacation can to for your stress levels.

On Our Way to Miami

March 28th, 2009

Well we are back in the airport on our way to Miami. The wedding was fun last night. The ceremony was on the beach, nice but the sun was blinding and the wind was giving everybody a good dermabrasion. All of the groomsman’s friends thought Brandon and Stephanie were my kids. Wow, made me feel old, but I guess I am. We are diving tomorrow afternoon and Monday morning. A short dive trip that will keep us trained for our dive trip next year in Fiji.

I Guess it is Time to Post

March 26th, 2009

Yes, I’m at an airport bar posting this. Where else would I be doing this from? We are on our way to Nikki’s wedding in Florida. Scott is looking forward to meeting more family that he has never met. The wedding is Friday in Clearwater Fl. And we are hightailing it to Key Largo on Saturday for a couple of days of scuba diving. The trip home will be interesting because I leave Scott at the airport in San Francisco to go to Temecula for the last half of next week. Scott is lucky enough to be able to go home for 15 hours before heading back to the airport to go spend a week and a half in Kotes and Japan for work. It will be a busy month of travel for us, but maybe we will be able to post more from the airport bars.

Guess Where I’m At

December 5th, 2008

Well as usual, I’m sending this post while sitting in SFO. We are on our way to Newerk. Scott has a training class there next week so we decided to go to New York for the weekend. Neither of us has ever been there, and we both know that one weekend is not enough time. This will give us a taste to want to go back another time. I’ll be in Streamwood on the 24th see you all then.

Time to go Home

September 26th, 2008

Well, I’m sitting at the Stuttgart airport waiting for my flight home. I get to have a layover in the Charles-de-Gaulle airport in Paris. I really don’t like this airport. The last time I was flying through there they lost my luggage, smoking was allowed everywhere (OK, only in smoking areas, but it smelled), and they were rude. I know what you are thinking, but the stereo type is not always true. I had to wake up at 4:00am this morning to make my flight. It is nice to be driven in a taxi that is a Mercedes with leather seats insted of junk cars that smell in San Francisco. The German’s know what they are doing! My flight is just about to board, more from Paris in an hour.
