30/10/16. Later today we will be getting on board this beast for the next two weeks.
We will be leaving Southampton to cross the Atlantic in 7 days before spending a week visiting a number of islands (St Kitts, Sint Maarten, US Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico and Haiti). We arrive in Fort Lauderdale (just north of Miami) on 14 November. While on board we will be “offline” as wifi is ridiculously expensive but we will see if we can hook up when ashore to post an update or two.
The last few weeks have been spent very pleasantly visiting family and friends in and around Oxfordshire, Bristol, Surrey and Hampshire and girding our loins about us for the next stage of our travels. Although we are not exactly going off the beaten track, we are both experiencing a degree of nervousness – more a case of “What have we forgotten?” than “What is going to happen to us?”
We’ll see you on the other side!
