My cousin, Stephanie, is spending four months on a ship traveling the world for Semester at Sea. She is blogging her experiences over at Stephanie at Sea, 2010. Here are...

Jason's Top Ten Fave Lines from Stephanie at Sea, 2010

10. "Fitting four months of 'stuff' in two bags is a very interesting process."

9. "[G]ladly leave behind my designer shoes that could have paid for another plane ticket in Viet Nam."

8. "Facing something new is such a crazy rush."

7. "I like this chair, I like this corner of the room, the light peeking out of the shutters is enticing."

6. "This opportunity to live and be alive is all I need."

5. "We had to pull a mission impossible to sneak all of us into this two person max room. After we settled in, we went to Tim Horton's for Iced Caps...a delicious Canadian must (especially in the Roy family)."

4. "It's nice to get away from the concrete that surrounds Southern California and take a breather on the coast."

3. "Keeping my mind in check really helps when trying to make this trip last for the exact amount of time that it needs to."

2. "Met up with our awesome crew [and] danced the night away."

And Jason's number one fave line from Stephanie at Sea, 2010...

1. "I am Stephanie Roy and I love life."

And the alternates...

"...[W]e run into four executives in dress suits who couldn't help but laugh as we frantically apologized for the hotel not supplying us towels. We made it back to the room out of breath and hysterical...."

"The blue of the ocean is not only blue, it is every shade of turquoise, light blue, dark blue, and blues in between."

"I will be getting the first hand, real experience, of living with a Moroccan family."

"My views on life are manifesting on this ship."

"I am starting to enjoy the rolling."

"We were parallel with the Big was huge! I saw at least four shooting stars. I know Grandpa is up there enjoying all of these experiences with me. It is so humbling to be on a small ship in the middle of the ocean with nothing but ocean and sky until the end of the earth."

"I miss that last hour to sleep in."

"Music is wonderful."

"Obviously by the flow of this post, my 23-hour days are getting a hold of me. Goodnight."
