Greetings from sunny San Diego! We’re currently packing our bags, ready to begin another adventure that we’re excited to fill you in on. It’s been a relatively slow start to our sixth year of full-time travel. We’ve only roamed around three countries in 2019. Although we’ve been exploring many new […]
Roaming Around the World is at Sarychev Peak.

Land ho! It’s not every day you wake up to a massive Russian volcano outside your window. Yet, this surprising sight was exactly what we awoke to this morning amidst squawking sea birds.
On this 7th day in-a-row at sea, Russia’s Sarychev Volcano is now the first sight of land since pulling away from Alaska!
But you had to be up at 5am this morning in order to see it. Thankfully, that’s easy to do on westbound voyages.
We’re typically not early risers. But there’s a funny side effect when taking a westbound repositioning cruise. Nearly every day on this transpacific itinerary, the clocks turn back while crossing subsequent time zones. So each day is a 25-hour day, giving passengers an extra hour of sleep every night!
As a result, it feels completely natural to rise and start the day bright and early. It’s possible to net a full seven hours of sleep by going to bed at 11pm at night and waking up at 5am in the morning! So we’re always naturally wide awake by sunrise. 🌞
Perhaps the best bonus of the gradual time adjustments is ultimately arriving to the destination with no jet lag. Speaking of which, there’s just one final time change left here on the Millennium until we reach Japan!
Rather than only watching such exotic scenery pass by outside the window, we’re growing excited to get back on the ground to go roaming around the Land of the Rising Sun! 🇯🇵 ... See MoreSee Less
What a spectacular sight!
So beautiful! Can’t wait to see pictures from Japan.
So beautiful! Heather, your hair is so long!
Gorgeous...but why on earth would you be up so early!
What an amazing site to see, beautiful💖
I’d love to take a repositioning cruise but the first cruise my husband and I ever did together was so horrible that I don’t think I could get him back on a cruise ship.
You're such a great photographer. Love all these clicks.
Your cabin is way too neat 😱 who has OCD? 🤣🤣🤣
You guys are the young Rock Stars of travel. Love it!
I don't do mornings but for this I would have gladly gotten up at anytime
That sight is worth waking up to even if you don't get much sleep (but even better you got a good night sleep)!
Isn't 11 to 5 only 6 hours of sleep? Lol.
What a view. Your hair is so long!
