Arriving in Style: A Luxury Transportation Blog

Hello, my name is Kristie, and I have traveled all over the world. I have traveled in a range of roles from the dishwasher on a cruise ship to the nanny on a private yacht. Now, years after my early adventures, I still travel often on cruise ships but as a passenger rather than a worker. I love the travel and transportation industry, and I love telling others about it. To give myself a place to explore that passion, I decided to create this blog. I hope that it attracts like-minded people and that you enjoy what you read. I plan to include posts on everything from taking cruises to booking private yachts to buying your own vessels. I hope this blog helps you arrive in style!
