I sent my boss and email last week asking for 3.5 weeks off for my trip to Europe next year and he’s given a verbal ok. He doesn’t like giving that much time off but with this much notice and for a trip to Europe he is ok with it. Today I filled out the booking form for a Saltyboys cruise in Croatia. On my last post about this trip someone commented that the trip was likely to be full of old fat Australian and American circumcised men. So? Firstly I have been told that the usual clients on these cruises are in their 30’s and 40’s, just like me. Secondly, I’m not ripped or body beautiful so why should I care if people are carrying a bit of extra weight? Thirdly, I’m circumcised and have no issue with either option on those around me.

This cruise is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time and I am dying to go. I will leave in exactly 7 months tomorrow if I book the flights that I’ve discussed with the travel agent. Seeing some dear friends in Sitges for the first time in about 9 years is going to be amazing. They are very dear friends that I don’t have the opportunity to see very much obviously being so far away.

Having said my piece about it not being important what my shipmates on the cruise look like, I will certainly be trying to get fit before I go. I want to represent Australia well after all and if the boat is full of hotties, who am I to complain?
