Cat and company are headed to Brussels tomorrow. Then Warsaw, then Moldova and home to Constanta and later, the home in Brasov after the honeymoon.

As always, she sends her love to all of you!
WOW!!
Now that's the ultimate fantastic way to tour Europe!! I've traveled a lot and the dream of not having to deal with commercial airlines just boggles my mind. I'm so happy for them all.

Thank you for updating us on Cat's travels, CrazyCatLady. Looking forward to hearing about her adventures when she gets back, and gets a few moments!

She's in Brussels now, and she called me. Her Mamma apparently had emails here and answered them, but Cat is real tired. she's having back pain but Carl and Laki and their moms are having a ball over there!

Waaahhhh, I wanna go! I'd love to see Europe one more time.

Gee whiz, I forgot the best part!

Cat and Carl were married on Catina II, and as a treat for the wedding guests, Cat took the controls for the first time for a little run around the harbor.

She was used to the older, slower boat, and so when pulling away from the dock, everyone had to hold on to the railings and Laki threw up immediately.

Carl said that boat took off like a JetSki away from the dock, and Laki has decided she will never, ever set foot on a boat EVER again. Cat said her honeymoon was wonderful, and they extended it for two more nights.

Dang lovebirds.

Now Cat, Carl, Papa, and the crew are out on sea trials. They've had some calibration problems with the fishfinder and the weather radar thingy, but that was fixed. So far, so good!

Cat loves being married, and apparently Carl's none the worse for the wear from being married either. She said, "I used to think of my engagement ring being the most beautiful ring I could ever have, but now it is second. My wedding ring is more beautiful to me now."

Carl chose to be married in traditional Romanian clothes with the tunic and all. He said he was shaking when he put the wedding band on her finger, and he said he couldn't believe such a nerdy misfit as he could have such a wife as Cat. He's not a nerdy misfit; people his and Cat's age don't appreciate a fine young man as he is, who loves his mother, is a stellar student, and makes beautiful birdhouses and birdfeeders. His Mom sells them at a flea market on weekends to make extra money.

Danggitall, I miss them terribly.

Thank you for the update, CatLady. I've been thinking about Cat and hoping all is well. It'll be fun to hear from her once she gets back and settled in.

Yes, thanks for the updates CCL. Been wondering how "our" Cat is doing. Sure do miss her posts around here. Any idea of when they'll be returning to NC, or do you think they'll end up staying in Romania for good? After all, she and Carl probably should be back to finish off their degrees, but there is all that new stuff to learn with the boat and all. Plus they need to come home to be your neighbor again! So many decisions!
