Putting aside the disappointment of last weeks results, for in reality what difference do they make to me right now? I still feel the same. I still look the same. And on Tuesday Im going on my cruise !!
Caroline came round yesterday morning and we were filling out our embarkation forms and generally getting all excited and giggly about it. Its been years since we went on holiday together - without some or all of our 6 children anyway.
We fly to Palma very early on Tuesday morning and join the ship there. It doesnt set sail till 9pm so we shall have all day to explore, or laze by the pool, or find all the bars - in fact anything we want to do. Which is the best thing about this cruise. You can do as much or as little as you want, more or less whenever you want. One of the restaurants is open 24 hours a day and there are bars and a theatre and a disco and casino and a health spa and shops.....put it this way, I dont think we will be bored !
Wednesday morning we will wake up in port in Sardinia, somewhere Ive always wanted to go as it looks such a beautiful island.
Thursday and we arrive in Rome. I dont think one day is anywhere enough time to explore the city thoroughly - were going to avoid the organised tours and just potter round on our own at our own pace....and see as much as we can. Oh, and do some shopping ofcourse !
Friday and its northern Italy, La Spezia. Dr P is Italian and I asked what was there when I saw him. Apparently there is a large Naval Base there.......
Hmmmm....Italian men in uniforms !! It doesnt get much better than that does it? haha !
Saturday and we pitch up in Nice where all the rich men with big yachts hang out...and more shops naturally.
Then we have a day at sea to recover (phew) and on Monday arrive in Mahon, Menorca, for the day. Overnight we sail back to Palma and fly home on Tuesday morning. Gosh Im exhausted just thinking about all of that !
So its Spain, Italy and France all in one week - all the food we can eat and quite possibly an awful lot of alcohol too !
What more could you want?
