HDTV Cam Update

Big Changes Since My Last Update

There have been quite a few cameras added since my last update. Camera upgrades at some locations have been completed and not only ship tracker added to each site, but option of air traffic tracker on a few.

By the way, HDTV is actually PTZtv. If there is an activity in the area of the cam, these folks will zero in on it when they aren't watching ships or aircraft coming or going. Things like parades, concerts, fireworks and weather events. Speaking of weather events, you will see these cams used by The Weather Channel from time to time.

Rather than go into lengthy discussions about each camera, I'll just provide you a current list. You can click on the links from here to view them. You will want to check them all out, but you will definitely find Maho Beach entertaining. Enjoy them!

CRUISE VACATION

Why Is A Cruise Vacation Better Than A Land Vacation?

CRUISE FACT: Cruises give travelers the convenience of packing and unpacking once, the comfort of a “home away from home” for the duration of the trip, but also the opportunity to visit a multitude of destinations on one vacation.

When I recently looked at planning a trip to Italy with a group of friends, we discovered that a cruise in the Mediterranean was not only the most cost effective way to see Italy, but it was the most time effective.

Through our time study while planning, it didn't take us long to realize that while cruising the Mediterranean, traveling from port-of-call to port-of-call, our floating hotel traveled while we slept.

In twelve days, of our cruise, we were able to visit a majority of the popular coastal cities of Italy. We left from and returned to Civitavecchia. Italy. We were able to visit Naples, Pompeii, Positano and ride along the Almafi coast, two days in Venice (overnight there was a treat), Livorno, Pisa, Florence, Rome & Vatican City on the mainland. On Sicily, we were able to visit Messina, Syracuse, Tiromina and the volcano Mt. Aetna.

Then, there were bonus cities in countries that we hadn't planned, nor would we have seen if we would not have opted for the cruise as a way to visit Italy. We visited Dubrovinik in Croatia. What a lovely country and the people were marvelous. Barcelona, Spain found us grabbing a taxi and toured the entire city. While stopping at Cannes, France, we were able to visit the area of the film festival. From there, we visited Nice & the ancient walled city of Eze in France and the country of Monaco.

We even had three entire days at sea to relax on this cruise to enjoy our ship and regroup from the hurried tour pace that we had planned.

Although most of us were fairly comfortable visiting a foreign country, it was still nice to come back to our safe haven. Our "home away from home."

With all of the places that we visited, our luggage had gained a good bit of weight. But then, because of the good food available around the clock, so did we.

Enjoy you cruise!
