Short Jaunt…

For my 50th, my friend surprised me with a trip to Prague, she paid for a 4-star hotel bed and breakfast, transfers, flights and 20kg bag in the hold. I am not too sure if airlines about the world are as tight fisted as the UK ones, but Ryanair you have to pay for literally…

Trip To Ireland

It’s fathers day, and we are aboard the good ship Mersey sailing to Ireland to see M’s parents. The dogs are with us and are in the onboard kennels. They are not too happy, to be honest, but it is better there than left in the car or left at the boarding kennels back home.…

Well, I ought to leave but the rain it never stops, and I’ve no particular place to go. Earlier…

Sea Views…

I thought I would share some of the views we had whilst out to sea, however, due to the weather there was not a great deal to see. H&WHarland & WolflifeboatsSamson & Goliathseashiptravel

Homeward Bound

Homeward bound finally. M and I are now in our cabin, lying on our beds (of which we have 4 to pick from) relaxing and eating overpriced chocolates after our lunch. We have been travelling for 7.5 hours so far, and have another 6 hours to go until we dock back home, then just over an…
