Getting Ready For My Next Adventure

I am still in Sun Valley, Idaho packing and getting ready for the next adventure that life has in store for me....being an acupuncturist at sea!

I have accepted a position to be the acupuncturist on the cruise ship Carnival Dream starting on January 22, 2011. The "Dream" will be cruising both the Eastern and Western Caribbean. Ports of Call include Cozumel, Belize, Isla Roatan, Costa Maya, Nassau, St. Thomas, St Maarten and the home port of Cape Canaveral, Florida.

One reason I decided to start this blog is to document the day to day adventure of being an acupuncturist on a cruise ship. My thoughts are to help other acupuncturists and give them some idea of what to expect, especially on their first contract. This is my first contract so I am expecting a lot of trial and error. Maybe I can help you avoid some of the mistakes I will certainly make along the way.

I found there is not a lot of information about what to expect for the day to day operation of an onboard acupuncturist on the internet. However I did meet one acupuncturist that was a terrific source of information and I am extremely grateful for the help and know who you are.

Another reason I decided to write this blog is in another life I was a professional photojournalist. I covered everything from professional sports to concerts to travel for various newspapers and magazines. This blog gives me a forum to post my travel adventures and photographs from ports of call throughout the world.

I hope you enjoy the blog, my travels, my photographs and I am looking forward to your comments...

My new home starting January 22, 2011
