June 1, 2018 (Flashback) – After departing Anchorage, I watched the Alaskan scenery on a bus ride to the cruise port in Seward. No mountain goats but one moose and plenty of avian wildlife. After a shockingly short check-in process (no lines!), it was all aboard and bon voyage. And to my great surprise, my ship, the Celebrity Millennium, was not without puzzles of its own!
With airfare being unfortunately high due to all the summer vacations happening right now, I didn’t expect to go very far this weekend. Wednesday night I get a text message from my parents. “We’re free for a trip this weekend. Any cheap flights?”
I’ve got a lot of material to go back and sort through in 2018, and I’ll take it piece by piece. I started with a few escape rooms in Illinois before going on the following trips. Also note that I’ve gone to Wisconsin a few times, but I’m going to group those stories together in recap.
