little ship of horrors
and here I have you all thinking that life on board is simply wonderful. Now don't get me wrong, it is. EXCEPT for sea-sickness, which struck me as soon as we sailed out of Sydney Heads. Sitting being served dinner on that first night, trying to be very elegant and worldly, I went green and started feeling very odd and clammy. So I raced to my stateroom ( oh they don't call them cabins on this ship!) and grabbed the ginger travel tablets and downed them with a glass of water - waited an hour or two and still felt absolutely dreadful. So Joe went and got some sea-sickness pills from the main desk. Which promptly put me to sleep. They did help but unfortunately I had to take them for the first two days, so I spent most of my time sleeping or in a dazed and confused kind of state. But I wasn't the only one who felt like this - walking on deck the next day, I saw many green people asleep on the deck chairs. Poor things. It is such an awful feeling, let me tell you.
