    Grandinroad, I agree with Joyce. Just came back from Japan/South Korea, part of which involved cruising in the Sea of Japan. One never knows what the leader of North Korea will do, but the probability of real danger is small. I would never recommend traveling into a known danger zone, but refuse to be deterred by the more minor potential problems everywhere in the world. Like Joyce, we also got asked about the Sea of Japan upon our recent return. I agree that driving in the US is statistically more dangerous. My review of the Southbound Cruising the Land of the Rising Sun has been posted for other details.

  • Land of the Rising Sun:Northbound March 29-April 11

    I've posted my comments about this trip in the Cruising the Land of the Rising Sun - Southbound section, but I essentially agree with Joyce's concerns. We had four Tauck groups traveling together, and each tour director did their best in keeping us on schedule and away from other groups so we didn't bunch up. This often led to rushed situations, where many of our group wanted to spend more time on a location/activity, but were hustled away so that one of the other group's could visit. These time limitations were more marked when the ship only visited a port for a limited amount of time. Fortunately, my group visited the Itsukushima Shrine on Miyajima at just the right tide level. Any other time would have been disappointing, as Joyce noted. Many dinners/lunches combined two groups, so 60 people were present. The farewell dinner had all four groups (120 people) and lacked any feeling of the intimacy one usually associates with Tauck trips. I don't envy the tour directors that have to manage six groups at the same ports or land locations.

After touring Cuba (and boy, was that great!) I returned to a pile of tasks that had to be done. The pile was messy and stale. So on Monday morning I launched into it, bore down and by the end of the day I was feeling pleased at how much I had gotten done.

Some people say they have “done” France and cross if off their bucket lists after visiting Paris. I’m not a big fan of that kind of bucket list. By that logic, someone could cross the USA off their bucket list after visiting Los Angeles. And they would know about as much about America as an ant knows about an elephant.
