In an ordinary year, we travel about half the year all around the world aboard some of the world’s leading luxury cruise lines and for private engagements.
2021 and 2022 were not ordinary years, with much of the world’s fleet of cruise ships tied up or set at anchor while we waited for the passing of the medical storm. And 2023…well, we’re still hoping for fair winds and following seas.
As I have previously noted in my blog: Life is what happens when you’re busy making other plans. That said, here are some of our planned trips in 2023 and beyond:
