Eryka, just read your blog... Looks amazing. Tell me, what are your long term plans with the cruising life? Are you and your husband setup to be able to do this indefinitely or do you expect to have to re-integrate into "normal" life at one point or another?
Pwillems, thanx for reading! As for our long-term plans: financially, we're set up to go indefinitely - that's what the 10 years to get ready was all about. Psychologically, we planned for this first cruise to go away for the winter and come back to annapolis in the spring. We're both newly retired and new to fulltime cruising and we didn't want to lock ourselves into anything until we knew how the trip would change us, what we'd want in the future (and I still don't know!) but the longer I'm away from owning a house, the more I know I don't need/want one again any time soon.
