Vacation Time

I’m in the middle of a 24-week chemotherapy cycle. I’m on chemo (FOLIFIRI with Avastin) for three days every two weeks. This is to treat stage-4 cancer in my lungs that started as colorectal cancer. It is really hard and it has taken quite a toll on me. The good news is I’m going to take a 5-week break from it. Three of those weeks will be traveling in Europe.

We are off to Rome for 5 days. I’ve never visited it but Eddie has. We are mostly going to play tourist there and see the historical sites and museums. Then we are boarding a gay cruise from Rome to Istanbul. The cruise is charted by Atlantis Events on the Celebrity Equinox ship. This promises to be fun. We have done quite a few gay cruises (the last one in February in Cuba) but none this big. The itinerary is:
Rome, Naples, Catania, Chania, Mykonos, Santorini, Bodrum, Kasadasi and Istanbul.

We will spend a few days in Istanbul and then finish the 3-week vacation in London to visit friends and catch some theatre. More details and photos when we come back.
