I am just off the Holland America Line’s Zuiderdam after a magnificent ten day Vegan Cruise to Panama!
We visited Half Moon Cay, Bahamas, Aruba, and Curacao, and we sailed through the Panama Canal, where I experienced the surprise of howler and capuchin monkeys jumping onto our little motorboat. In Costa Rica, my group visited the Jaguar Rescue Center, saw baskets of baby Sloths, infant monkeys, and so many other injured or orphaned animals being cared for lovingly. After a vegan lunch in the center’s cafe we had a guided tour through a bit of the rainforest. I’ve got to find photos of the Walking Stick Trees (they actually move!) the Red Eyed Frogs, all sorts of lush forest. Everything works together, and there in the Rainforest, we all marveled at and thanked mother nature. We must protect these natural ecosystems.
Cooking demos by The Vegan Zombie, Vegan Black Metal Chef, and raw Chef Laurel Anderson, and me were well attended and fun. The culinary staff of the ship went out of their way to make stunningly delicious vegan meals for the 100 or so of us. We were joined at several dinners by trainers from the gym and a guest relations specialist from Germany, who are vegan and were so thrilled to spend time with us.
As I have to board my plane and have limited wifi, I’ll have to stop here but expect more photos on my social media accounts soon. We are awaiting the announcement of the dates and Itinerary that Franci and Curtis Kettman will share soon. Believe me, you will want to sail with us.
I’ll be checking into the Rouxbe course dashboard soon as I arrive home in great anticipation of tomorrow’s Essential Vegan Desserts course launch. It isn’t too late for a few of you to join us! http://rouxbe.go2cloud.org/aff_c?offer_id=6&aff_id=1498
