Traveling In Luxury – Mazatlan Part VII

Roads Traveled by Linda L. Osmundson

I decorated for Christmas early since our cruise began on December 4, and I’d have no time once we returned two weeks later to get ready for the holiday. Upon boarding our Holland America ship in San Diego I felt a sense of disappointment that it was not decorated for Christmas. Imagine my surprise upon stepping from my stateroom on our sixth day at sea (December 10) to discover a fairyland of Christmas

Don't Believe Everything You Read

Sara James, Ph.D., Assistant Professor in the Department of Classics at the University of Colorado-Boulder, will present the free Archaeological Institute of America (AIA) lecture titled “Don¹t Believe Everything You Read: Texts, Archaeology, and the Destruction of the Greek City of Corinth in 146 BC” on Wednesday, April 16, at 7 p.m., in the Paleontology Hall at the University of Colorado Museum of Natural History.

Generations of scholars have relied heavily on ancient literary accounts of the Roman sacking of the city-state of Corinth in the mid-second century, BC, to interpret archaeological remains in the city. Many Greek and Roman authors paint grim

Traveling In Luxury Part VI - Guaymas

Roads Traveled with Linda L. Osmundso

Sometime during the night, the waters calmed. Before retiring, Bob claimed he had no interest in seeing Guaymas. We’ve traveled in Mexico before so we made this trip mainly for the Dixieland Jazz music. My goal for this port was to find an Internet Café. The ship’s Internet was way too slow and expensive. I again dressed in the dark, had breakfast in the Lido, and

Traveling In Luxury – Loreto; Part V

Roads Traveled with Linda L. Osmundson

Although the ship anchored near Loreto around 7:30 a.m., Bob and I put off going ashore until after an early lunch. Other passengers chose the beach, the aquarium, a clambake, or the daylong trip to San Javier Mission. We planned to meet our private guide outside the oldest mission church of Baja California for a tour of a resort community eight miles away.

Traveling In Luxury, part 4 La Paz, Mexico

Roads Traveled with Linda L. Osmundson

Each morning aboard ship, I showered and dressed in the dark while Bob slept. In the Lido Restaurant, I chose various items from the buffet and always included a chocolate or berry croissant.

I pulled a chair next to my new friend at the jam session and watched the musicians arrive decked out in shorts. More people crowded the hallway and venue. Again, the upbeat music, silly jokes, and casual friendships created an uplifting

Traveling In Luxury – Part 2

Roads Traveled with Linda L. Osmundson

Our first port on the Sea of Cortez cruise was Cabo San Lucas. We sailed around the southern tip of the Baja Peninsula from the West to East. Rocks jutted from the mainland. At noon, we anchored off shore.

Traveling In Luxury – At Sea

Roads Traveled With Linda L. Osmundson

I love “at sea” days aboard a ship. For the Sea of Cortez cruise, I decided against Bingo, pasta cooking, digital workshop, a movie, or more. My goal was to do nothing on those four days but relax, read, write, and listen or dance to music. Each day was similar to the first “at sea” day.

Traveling In Luxury – The First Day

Roads Traveled With Linda L. Osmundson

My husband Bob and I flew to San Diego a day early for our scheduled Sea of Cortez cruise aboard the MS Statandam. Good thing. Denver’s predicted snow storm blew in that night and blanketed DIA causing flight delays the next morning. We might have, as the saying goes, “Missed the boat!” That said, I never let any of the 557 crew
