Royal Princess Inside Passage Alaska: Preparation and Embarkation

Off we go! This trip was on my bucket list as Alaska was my 50 th state. I probably spent more time in the planning than I had with any cruise ever. I wanted everything to work out as well as possible and I didn’t leave anything to chance.   When you are traveling with an assisted device, no matter what your disability is, it requires additional planning. In my case I have multiple chronic illnesses. I am able to walk some, but definitely not any distance. I am currently using a motorized scooter and have ordered a custom power wheelchair. The first step in the process is to make sure that the ship you are going on is accessible. I know this seems like a given in the year 2023, but it’s not. There are boats that do not have elevators or have room entrances a wheelchair will not fit in. Next, you want to make sure you can get around where you are going. It’s alright to find you have to spend time on board and miss one or two excursions, but you don’t want to miss everything.

Something New Coming Soon

 I just returned from my bucket list Alaska cruise with Princess. Before I left, I was looking for as much information as I could find about the itinerary, ports, ships, and cabins. It was hard to find and the places I did find some of it was popular. I've decided to post this missing information, not only from this cruise, but from other cruises, hotels, and attractions. Look for videos and photos coming soon. I'll also have travel trips and tips. I'll also be concentrating on accessible travel information as I now travel exclusively in a power wheelchair or motorized scooter.  Marcia

Enjoy These Products: It’s Time To Make A Decision

My health comes first and, with chronic illnesses, that doesn’t leave me the ability to work very much. I need to use those part time hours to earn money. I have been presenting products I like  on Spiritstraveler for 13 years, but I am going to have to stop. I will still consider products for social media (@Spiritstraveler on Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest & Facebook) and paid partnerships. Another option to relax… The times are changing. It’s no longer just alcoholic drinks people are relaxing with. Cannabis drinks are becoming more popular and the Loki seltzers have been top rated. I really liked the flavor of the Lavender Peach, and I had a friend try, and also enjoy the Blackberry Lemon. There is no sugar in them and only five calories. These have 20 mg of hemp derived Delta 8. I am not an expert on the subject, but the Sip Loki website explains more about its properties. While not THC, it does have similar properties. It is legal in 34 states. I  have to admit that I did

So Much To Do, So Little Time

I keep apologizing for being behind on reviewing products I receive. It’s time to make some decisions about how I handle things going forward. In the meantime, I am getting toward empty shelves. Here are some of my latest favorite products.  This post contains affiliate links. If you are looking for more, check out these links. Not only will you find some unique things, but you’ll help me out as I get a commission on these. It’s always time for ice cream…                                          I love ice cream any time of year and I had a lot of fun making some with Hijinx . No ice cream machine is needed. Just use a blender to put your favorite ingredients together for your preferred flavor. The only requirement is milk and the best part of Hijinx is that you can use any milk you want. I put together low-fat milk (the mix does have a high 11-gram fat content), peanut butter cups, and a swirl of peanut butter and it was delicious. I just put it in a container in the freezer for fo
