Boat Back to Blighty

8/4/17. With a fair degree of sadness, later today we start on the final leg of what has been a two year journey when we get on the Crown Princess here in Fort Lauderdale. The cruise will take us to Southampton via The Azores, Lisbon, Bilbao and Le Havre (which they call “Paris” for goodness’ sake!) arriving on 22 April.

As internet access seems to be even more extortionate than on other cruises ($70 for 2 hours!!) we will be “off the grid” for the next two weeks unless we find free access at one if the stops.

See you on the other side!

    1. Hi Raymond. Madam has been planning all the time. She is lining up at least 3 more trips to foreign parts for the rest of the year alone! (Long weekend in France, visit to her brother in Spain and trip to Bahrain to see our son & d-in-l plus one other which is a secret at the mo.) She is incorrigible.

  1. Congrats on a great trip. I really enjoyed reading about your adventures. I met you one day cycling in Melbourne Beach, FL. As I told you, one day I will plan a similar cycling trip in Europe. I will definitely give you a shout. Have a great cruise and be sure to sample the “carne de porco alentejana” (pork and clams) when you are in Lisboa.

    PS – I give Trump no more than two years before he is impeached.
