Over the winter, Cece has been fortunate to have taken 2 different dream vacations. You can read about the second vacation on Stepping Beyond and the first vacation will be detailed here! She did all this without getting too hot or too cold.
You may remember that Cece went boot shopping with her friend Stephanie. Actually they got a bit distracted by the stiletto heels!
They were really shopping for warm boots! Steph was going to Norway to follow her dream to see the Northern Lights. She got Cece all excited about this trip! As they shopped, Steph told Cece about the lights and how she was going to take a cruise on a working cruise liner that would stop at 32 ports and let the local workers on and off. She was going to adventure and take sight seeing trips. She hoped to see a Viking ship!
Cece asked Stephanie if she had several evening gowns as she knew that there was formal dress on most cruises. But, Stephanie assured her that at 30 below zero there was no need for a strapless gown…but a down parka that went “down to Frigid” was already on order!
Those of you that know Cece, know that she is always cold and would no more go on a cruise into ” 30 below land” than get a hole in the head. So, she supported Steph on her adventure and asked her if she thought her camera would still work at those frigid temps!
Steph and Cece texted and emailed a few times during her trip and about a day after she got back, they met in the Flying Star for dinner and show and tell. Well, Stephanie had about 1,000 photos on her Apple laptop fand she was able to detail each of the 32 ports that she went to. Cece was fascinated and loved to hear all the stories and tall tales about her trip. The photos she took of the Northern Lights were spectacular! WOW! So awesome. Cece watched and watched as Stephanie went through each town. Cece was speechless and listened to her tour.
Later that evening, when Cece was home, she thought WOW she had never thought of going to Norway, but it was so cool! She went to sleep. That night,in her dreams, she boarded the cruise liner and cruised through Norway. She stopped at the 32 various ports and saw the Viking ship, the ice sculptures, Northern Lights,. the pitch black sky with green light energy pulsing through the sky. She was in awe!
When she woke up after a full nights sleep, she called Stephanie and told her she went to Norway in her dream! She was exhausted from her whirl wind cruise. …but she was happy that she was so warm in her bed and did not need the sub zero down parka or the thermal boots to enjoy her trip into her dreamland!
Well, I wonder what her next Dream vacation will be like? Check Stepping Beyond to find out!
