Welcome friends, my name is John Reitmeier and I've been so fortunate to have experienced a lot of travel starting back in 1972. It's time to put the memories in some sort of order, and to add text and pictures to share with our friends and the many listeners to our radio programs. Thanks for coming along on this ride!

March 3, 1994 and now 2010
I am for sure however going to do some of the REPOSITIONING crusing in the coming years. Riding the big barges from Europe to the USA or vice versa, as they reposition for the different seasons. Do remember though even though you get an inside cabin for 500 bucks for an 11 day trip, there's about another 500 in port charges, and 3 hundred in fees and then the dogleg flights, so you're still talking about somewhere in the neighborhood of 2,000$$ when you're done, not counting tips and a possible hotel stay on the ends. Still all in all a good value! And It's my goal to ride the QE2 one direction, and one of the other boats (I'm going for smaller rather than larger) the other direction in the next few years. BIG HINT BIG HINT! Read the reviews that are posted on the many cruise sites. For sure I'm not going to get on an Norwegian Cruise Line boat until I see the reviews start to change. Just too many bad comments. Sad cause I would have thought that NCL would be tops on the sea! More coming sooner, :-) I promise. Your traveling companion. John
