I'm cheating a bit with this one . . . the actual summary post was finalized on Dec. 16, 2008, but the first post overall was September 18, 2008. Oh, well. My blog, my rules.

This is the front page for our dispatches from our Grand Asia & Australia Voyage on Holland America's Amsterdam, from September 19-November 23, 2008, with bonus coverage of our pre-cruise visit to Seattle, and our post-cruise detour to Cancun.

Here are the individual posts, collected all in one handy location for your reading pleasure. As we travel, we'll be adding posts so you can follow our journeys.
