    Eastbourne

    May 21, 2015

    Und das ist die aktuelle Position von unserem Auto:

    Dover to Calais

    May 9, 2017

    So.. after a lovely few days in Buckingham for new godson William's Christening - save for our bicycles being stolen 😫 - we're now on a very quiet ferry to Calais (sadly sans velos).

    It's a beautiful sunny day, hopefully it will follow us for the next few months.

    Will update when we are settled in Switzerland 🇨🇭

  • Day268

    After two unnecessary nights in Jersey we are on our way to France, at last. First delayed by bad weather then a stevedore strike in France then bad weather again we are now half way there.
    We had a mooch round St a Helier and did the Railway walk from Corbiere to St Helier in the wind.
    Will be glad to get down south to the sunshine and a little more warmth.
    All the best for 2018 everyone, health wealth and happiness all roundRead more

  • Day12

    I awoke early and, went to breakfast, and took a few photos of a passing container ship. Glenda is still sick. The crew has advanced our U. K. passport check by half an hour. I guess bureaucrats must always find something to do to stay busy. After a light lunch of spaghetti, we got an ice cream cone at Swirls. We passed between Southampton and the beaches of Normandy, and I went up to the sky deck to take some photos just to remind me of D-Day on June 6, 1944. Since we had a late dinner planned, I brought back to the stateroom a fruit and cheese plate around 4:30 pm. We dressed for formal dinner and ate with Hal and Sharon Miles and two of their friends, Stella from Long Island and her daughter-in-law Jamie from Dallas, Texas. I photographed the group; our waiters, Nole and Leila; Vincent Paul and his companion Naomi Cornelius; and Lee and Sandy Patkus from Orlando. We went down to the piazza to watch the dropping of all the balloons. I wanted to photograph the event, but when one of the entertainers began to drag people out onto the dance floor, I decided it was time for me to leave. So we're ready for bed now. Glenda is feeling much better and we're looking for a good day in Amsterdam tomorrow.Read more

  • Day1

    After a nice drive down to Southampton with Maz and Sue, we boarded the new and improved Independence of the seas.
    I must say that they have done a great job with the refurbishment.
    Nothing that I can see has been done to the cabins, but the public areas have been greatly improved.
    With one or two brilliant additions, first being the new Suites lounge, which replaces the old concierge lounge on deck 10, that, is now cabins.
    The new lounge is on deck 14 opposite the diamond club lounge. It is brilliant, with a wall of windows and very nice furniture.
    The other addition is the new Playmakers Bar on deck 4. This is a cracking sports bar with what seems like 100s of tv screens, showing all manner of sports. There are pool tables, and bar games on the tables, along with some basketball machines if you want to shoot some hoops.
    Outside at the back of the ship are a new water slide, a kind of kids climbing setup and The Skypad, which is apparently a bungee simulator, where you get strapped in and sort of bounce on a trampoline, while wearing a VR headset.
    All in all from what I've seen upto now, they have given the Indy a great new lease of life, and imho, they are definitely on to a winner, especially with the younger cruisers and families.
