The Amsterdam–my classroom

December 30, 2016 Paul Groves

This ship will be our home for the next four months. It seems incredible to spend so much time away from home. This ship holds 1,300 passengers which is not like the larger ship (the NCL Jewel) we were on for our tips to Mexico and to Alaska that held 2,350 passengers. I like the idea of the smaller, more intimate ship. I’m hoping to make some new friends as well as see the world.

I view this trip as a class rather than a vacation. I know a lot about chemistry and teaching chemistry, but I really know very little about the World. I will blog about the lessons I learn in each port and between stops as well. We always talk about being lifelong learners… here’s an amazing opportunity to be one.
