Traveling is one of those activities that doesn’t need too much encouragement to do. I have to admit, traveling has never really been one of my favorite things to do, but those feelings have intensified since I found out that life isn’t as fair as it was when I was ten years old.
Cleaning: You will be expected to keep the villa/apartment reasonably clean and tidy. Check the detail on the website. One can sometimes arrange for someone to come and do the basics for you. This might be included in the price or incur an additional charge.
The first part of the newspaper you read is the travel section. I used to do this because it was the only part of the Sunday paper that my dad didn’t like. Now that I have my own subscription to the Sunday news, I flip through the funnies to get me ready to read about the next celebrity appearing in rehab – or the lottery winner who just went bankrupt. The travel section very rarely leaves the bulk of the paper, until the bug resurfaces itself and makes me read about some all-inclusive resort in Antigua.

In my eyes, our producers could do no wrong. Seriously. I think our whole cast felt that way. They wrote beautifully, cast a winning team, and put the show onscreen, on time, and on budget every week for 7 years. It was the #1 syndicated show in the world when we left the air. It touched a lot of lives, even years later, in a lot of ways.
Alcohol and cruise ship holidays go together. Remember though, inebriation leads to seasickness. It also leads to unplanned spending and antisocial behavior. As they say, use it…don’t use it – it’s really all up to you.
