We are off on a Cruise ..........

We are off on Monday on the last Mediterranean Cruise on the QE2 before she leaves for Dubai to become a floating Hotel. We leave home tomorrow (26th) for a stopover in the New Forest - just so we don't miss the boat on Monday!


We leave Southampton at 5.00pm and call in on Lisbon, Portugal; Cagliari, Sardinia, Italy; Naples, Italy; Messina, Sicily, Italy; Dubrovnik, Croatia; Zakinthos, Greece; Athens (from Piraeus), Greece and on the way back Girbraltar and Vigo, Spain, docking back at Southampton on the 11th November.


If you fancy a ride on the Bridge click here - the picture changes every sixty seconds.


I'm hoping to get lots of inspiration from this trip, so I'm loaded down with sketchbooks galore to fill up .............!


Hopefully I'll be blogging again in a few weeks time, but then maybe not. I may decide to stow away and go to Dubai ..........!

Oh Val you lucky girl. I got some photos of her when she stopped in Liverpool a few weeks ago but that was as close as I got. I always dreamt of going on her but too late now, can't wait to see Queen Mary 2 when she come here next year. Have a great time ..... can I stow away in your suitcase!!!!!!

Have a great time Val as I know you will.
I could say I'd like to be going with you but I get seasick even before the ship leaves port.
I would spend the whole time in bed.
Enjoy me friend.

Welcome Home - hope you have had a wonderful time. I love the photos of your garden in October. I had things in flower then that I had been waiting for weeks to do their stuff. The summer weather really had the plants puzzled this year.
