    Home time

    September 15, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    We had some time before we caught our plane so headed to the naval museum. Very interesting as a lot of the history of Venice is linked to the sea. Heaps of great models and actual large boats from the past. Then is was off to the airport for the journey home.Read more

    Venice

    September 14, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    Back on land! We dropped our bags and headed off for Murano and Burano. Burano was an absolute highlight - less busy than Venice with brightly coloured houses! In the square some fresh seafood was being cooked up! Later on, we met up with our fellow cruisers for dinner before going our separate ways tomorrow.Read more

    September 12, 2019 in Greece ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    We thought about jumping ship and staying here..... highlight so far! We ditched the tour groups and hired a scooter - found some beautiful beaches, swam and had a delicious lunch overlooking the water 😊Read more

    Santorini

    September 10, 2019 in Greece ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    We were tendered in to Santorini early in the morning as we had a tour booked. We were met by Dimitri and as we drove to Oia he gave us a geological lesson on Santorini and surrounding islands which make up the volcanic crater. We wandered around Oia for a while, catching a glimpse of the famous, well photographed blue dome. On to Santo Wines which is a cooperative winery. Here we tasted three wines with nibbles. Then onto Fira, the village with the steps and donkeys! We had lunch and a wander with many others doing the same (six cruise boats were in port 😮) We then dodged donkeys and hopped on board the ship.Read more

    Kotor, Montenegro

    September 9, 2019 in Montenegro ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    We sailed into the port very early this morning so were able to leave the ship from 7am. It is a lovely old city also and as it was so early it was lovely and quiet. We headed up to the climb the city walls again; more of a challenge than yesterday! The view was amazing 😊 After some wandering and shopping, we headed to a restaurant one of the waiters on the ship recommended. We had local fish and wine which was so fresh and yummy 😋 Philip swum at the little beach and then we headed back to the ship for formal night!Read more

    Dubrovnik

    September 8, 2019 in Croatia ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    We docked after lunch in Dubrovnik and left the boat to explore. The old town is all made of beautiful light stone and is set around a harbour. We walked part of the city walls and then explored the streets.Read more

    Venice

    September 7, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    As we wandered the streets we came across some great shops! Philip bought some great linen and then we continued on to the Jewish Ghetto - a small island all the Jews were contained on during the war. A final Italian lunch and then off to board our ship!Read more

    Venice

    September 6, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    I was feeling a bit seedy so missed the tour of Doges palace and met the others at Cafe Florian, the oldest cafe in Europe! The rain set in for the afternoon so we stayed in and relaxed.
