Hello everybody! I'm back today with pictures from day 2 and 3 of our recent Stampin' Up incentive trip the Mediterranean.
Our first full day on the ship was an "at sea day." I always like these because we get to take full advantage of the amenities of the ship. And take a nap. I do love a good nap! ;-)
We had a planned General Session with Stampin' Up in the morning. It was so fun to see some main stage stamping!
Speaking of Allison, she won prize patrol too!
After lunch we headed to the Hospitality Room and spun the prize wheel. Yes, a prize wheel full of SU goodies! Everyday, we spun the wheel and got new product! So spoiled!!
The Hospitality room is also filled with lots of beautiful displays!
Ted and I found the "Quiet Zone" sun deck at the front of the ship and it became one of our favorite places tidiest chill out. We were freezing through- notice the jackets! LOL!
And when we returned to our room, our pillow gift was waiting!
Can you believe this!?!? A cute little cross body Doony & Burke purse! Plus FOUR bolts of ribbon! Wowza!!!
When we woke the next day we were in Naples. That is Mt. Vesuvius, the volcano responsible for Pompeii. Can you see the crater in the middle? Yikes!
This was my favorite excursion of them all. We loaded the bus with our travel buddies and headed to Sorento.
Our tour guide was the BEST we had. His name was Nello and he was 100% Italian! Everything you hoped from a fun Italian tour guide is what we got. If you go to Italy, make sure you check out Can't Be Missed Tours. We were thrilled with our experience.
The first thing we learned is that the driving in Naples is CRAZY! Apparently that white line is a suggestion. Or, it's a guide for the cyclist. We had to close our eyes...
We stopped in Sorento and had time to do some exploring. The city was just beautiful.
There were lemons everywhere! This are is also known for it's Olives. We saw many Olive trees, cherry trees and lemon trees. These lemons were HUGE!
We stopped for lunch with the McKays and Okamitsus. The food wasn't that great, but the company more than made up for it!
After the drive of the Amalfi Coast, we headed to Pompeii.
Pompeii, as you prbably know, is the archeological remains of a city buried under a volcanic explosion in 79 AD. It's interesting, yes. But, it was also very crowded and very big.
I won't bore you with all the pictures of stone (because that's basically all there was). But, there were some casts of the victims and that was very moving.
When we returned to the ship, the clouds had finally lifted and we had a beautiful view of the Volcano.
Our pillow gift arrived while we were getting read for dinner.
Earlier, I had received the stamp set, and now I received the rest of the beautiful Floral Boutique Suite.
After dinner, Ted and I discovered the Shuffle Board!!
We love playing shuffle board... LOL! I don't know why, but we always do!
It was a great ending to a really great day.
Stop back tomorrow for more pictures!
