cruising with olivia

traveling for a week on a cruise ship with 1800 lesbians is well … interesting::

it’s nice to hold hands or kiss and know you won’t get sneered at, spit on or pornographied;
strange to grasp how many lesbian stereotypes exists because of truths;
and humbling to realize how much others have endured to pave a smoother road for us.
it’s delightful not to feel threatened by a conversation with or compliment from a stranger.
it is absolutely entertaining to watch a room full of lesbians dancing … whether laughing at hip thrusts, or admiring old school waltzing.
it’s wonderful to be in an environment where women are free to do whatever they want; and beyond puzzling what some choose to do with that freedom.

the trip was phenomenal fun. but, it is really, so very good to be back home.

anyone else ever been on an olivia trip? what did you think?

The pictures are fun! I don't know, a cruise with a bunch of lesbians sounds like a hoot. And at least Amy couldn't wander off too far...

ooooh! time to go look at pictures, now!! We're glad you're home too--our jealousy was getting a little out of hand.

BTW--were any of the lesbians clapping while they danced?

it was the "western caribbean" cruise with olivia, on a holland america ship. it's definitely worth the experience.
