When we decided to write a blog for Salsa and Salsa, we sat down and story boarded ideas, concepts and themes. We weren’t sure we wanted to keep a day to day log of every ship, people’s names and funny events/situations that occurred during shows. We see a lot of people each week and keeping track of everyone seemed like a daunting task. But what we have come to see, is that people, their stories and their personalities speak for themselves.
For example, today we had Mariner of the Seas and the Sapphire Princess docked in port. Both fun cruises, both with a good mix of ages and origins. We had some Cowboy fans, as well as gals from Chicago (CHI-TOWN!), boys from Brisbane and a couple from Alaska…to name a few. Not to mention the family of 6, traveling together, enjoying each others company! (Tom the dad, Tyler and his partner, and Tony aka Cody and his respective other also). We had another two couples from Brissy, who btw, did not know the boys from Brisbane! (lol).
It’s amazing to think so many nationalities, let alone ages, and walks of life, can come together and share such fun times in such a small amount of time! Leonique and I get so fired up every morning, with the excitement of seeing those first passengers arrive through the doors…we always love the fact that they have no idea how much fun they are about to embark on, and we feel honored to be able to provide you guys with awesome memories, great photos, fantastic recipes and unforgettable moments! Not everyone loves their jobs as much as we do…we love getting up in the morning, picking up our morning coffee from Starbucks and heading over to the Hotel Las Flores to help set up for the tour. How many people can say their job is located in a 4 star hotel, with beach views, sunny weather, where you get to cook, dance, laugh and sometimes (if you’re lucky) sing! We are truly blessed, and best of all, your TWO DANCING CHEFS are best friends, so we joke around A LOT and make fun of each other at any given opportunity! A real recipe for greatness is working and surrounding yourself with people that make you feel special, and we were both lucky enough to find each other. 🙂
I’ve been playing around with the Salsa Camera the last few weeks, with the intention of putting together a fun You Tube video to share with you all. It’ll be made up of snippets of clips from the show. I plan to start on it as soon as I finish this entry, so fingers crossed I don’t get angry at my Windows Movie Maker (what is it with that thing?! How has Microsoft NOT come up with a solution to fix the annoying bug that program has?!) In the process of getting all the IT stuff for Salsa and Salsa up and running, we started our own Salsa Channel on You Tube <CLICK HERE to subscribe> ! or simply click on the photo above to see the Salsa video.
As I mentioned in our first post, we will be sharing video, recipes and more, but we would like to hear from you…Have you been to our tour? What did you think of it? Got any cool pics you would like to share? What recipe would you just kill for?!
Looking forward to hearing from you,
