Day one of my travels. The new transport ships are far faster, and are able to get to Mars in ten days. It amazes me that we can travel such vast distances in such a short time. When I was young it would take months to get to Mars and it was extremely dangerous. There were numerous people that lost there lives making the journey. Now that I think about it, it's incredible that we even have a colony there. And, it's a thieving one at that.
The accommodations on the ship can only be described as very similar to that of a luxury cruise back on Earth. The rooms are not huge by any means, but they are about 600 sq ft. There is a bed with the finest linens, a place to sit, a small kitchenette, and a very nice bathroom. Each room is equipped with a port hole and the view of the stars is spectacular. The food on the ship is also wonderful. It is all prepared by hand, and with the freshest produce, and meat if you want that credits can buy. I could get better from my own garden. And, I certainly couldn't prepare in a better fashion.
I met someone today as well. His name is Ted, and we were able to talk for some time. He is from London, and also has a passion for growing his own food. He will be living not far from me in the colony. I hope our relationship will grow into a friendship. Also, I have to say that he is very good looking. Yes, even after 700 years I still have strong drive for that sort of thing. He has just the most stunning green eyes and large frame. Listen to me. I sound just like a school boy.
