Packing for Alaska!

With 6 days left, Marsali and I decided to get a head start on packing for our Alaskan cruise. Deciding what to bring was the easiest part. Certainly, we'd need outfits for every occasion imaginable and, oh, wouldn't lounge chairs be nice to bring, too?

By the time we'd finished deciding what to bring, the pile of stuff had really accumulated. "How will we ever pack all of this?" I worried. Marsali, ever the seasoned pro when it comes to cruises, reassured me that we'd find a way. So, we thought for a bit, and finally, I suggested that we needed to come up with a way to organize our belongings.

Marsali agreed and proposed the perfect solution - suitcases! She had suitcases galore, from smallest to largest. So, we set to work, arranging our clothes in the order that we'd be wearing them. We made sure we had everything, including shoes and hair accessories!

By the time we'd finished packing all of the clothes into the suitcases, we were pooped. Taking a little break, we had some soda. I also took the opportunity to thank Marsali, once again, for inviting me along on the cruise. It was such a nice gesture on her part; I know I will remember this trip forever!

After our break, we loaded the smaller suitcases into the big piece of luggage and ended up with a little room to spare ... which turned out to be a good thing. In our haste, we'd forgotten that Novya hadn't brought her things over to us yet. We both felt bad when we saw Novya trotting up, lugging her suitcases.

We laughed it off and turned to help Novya repack her things. With a little rearranging, we were soon able to pack her things with ease. Whew!

Vacations are fun, but packing up the stuff you need to bring makes it difficult sometimes.

I hope your trip will be a fun adventure. It sounds like packing was kind of an adventure already. ;-)

Have fun in Alaska!

Sophie, have fun!! I wrote to Marsali's Auynti and asked her if she might look for Junior Ranger stuff for you guys on the cruise. I'm hoping you'll bring one back for me too!

Packing is a big pain!

I hope you have a wonderful trip! I hate packing myself, but at least you got it out of the way early!
