The Celebrity Eclipse is going to be my ride back to the States. I thought why not, I’ve been chasing all over Europe for the past six months, never in one place for over six days. It’s time for a little R&R. What better way than to chill out for two weeks on a cruise. I got 85% off the thing on VacationsToGo.com, and although I had to pay that annoying singles supplement, it was still a bargain. Of course, it won’t be all lazing about. The ship stops in Boston, New York, and Bermuda where I will be meeting up with family and friends before flying back to San Diego from Miami. At least I will have a place to call home for two weeks.
Celebrity Eclipse – Departing November 1st. from Southampton
My five-star floating city for two weeks
Thank God they have a gym
Two days of chilling before I get on the ship for two more weeks of chilling. On one day I hit the shopping street to scout out a pork pie hat to complete my Breaking Bad Halloween costume. I already have the shaved head, the van-dyke beard, and the black rimmed, badass prescription sunglasses. I am attending a fancy dress party on Saturday at the Brook, Southampton’s premier rock club. It will feature a popular band called “The Mods” who play Brit Pop from the late Sixties, playing everything from the Kinks to the Small Faces.

Nice Touch For A Shopping Street
Tonights Entertainment – Time to give my head a fresh shave, and tint my beard.
SHRIMP & BURGER – First a burger with sweet potato fries at Shrimp & Burger. I have to say that the quality surpassed most of what I encounter back in the States. This has been a trend. I found superior Blues in Stockholm, incredible Funk in Salzburg, and first rate Jazz in Madrid, all American art forms.
