Joy...

This was a very emotional day for me and I was crying like a baby on the freeway. All I had to do was envision myself on that cruise ship and I was overwhelmed with so much emotion that I couldn't help it. My entire adult life I've dreamed of this, always saying I'm going to take that dream cruise to Alaska "some day". I've been saying "some day" for so many years that I'm having a hard time accepting that "some day" is actually...well...now. The thought of such a huge dream coming true makes me cry when I actually let myself feel it. And I'll probably cry like a baby again when we pull up close enough to the docks to see that huge cruise ship stretching up into the sky (which is how it looks when you drive by the docks - like it's towering from the Bay into the sky).

Thought this was just a business trip - good on you for chasing dreams :)
The seminars on the ship are what pushed me to make the dream come true. It was just too good to be true to be able to do both.
It's a wonderful feeling. I felt that way when I went back to school after nearly 8 years to chase a PhD and my first trip to Germany in 1999.

Enjoy the rush!
Even though you handled all the details, paid for it, showed up, etc.

Consider it my inverse birthday present.
I lived in Juneau for 3 years and still dream about the place. You will have a wonderful time, this is the perfect time of year to go and the scenery will be beautiful. Summer in Southeast Alaska is like no where else on Earth.

Go you for making this happen!
