So….Cruise vs DIY?

So did we do it better than taking a cruise? Well, if you take out having to lug our suitcases everywhere, on and off trains, to and from airports and up and down all the steps we ended up having to navigate, then we obviously would have had a better time of it on a [...]

Home?

Our flight is at 9.30 and we are so close to the airport, it literally takes us 10 minutes to get to the check in counter.  And we didn't even have to get up at some stupid hour to get here. I can't believe this trip is over.  At times it's felt like flying by [...]
