St Petersburg is spectacular. We took a guided tour (day one of two) today with SPB tours. Although SPB had already sent our passports to customs as part of their procedure, it still took 1.5 hours to clear customs today. Our early arrival of 8am on the docks seemed to be not much advantage for […]

Yesterday we enjoyed a ‘sea day’ on our cruise ship. Unfortunately, I’ve picked up a cold and so I have not been very energetic. The kids have made up for it! They tackled table tennis, the rock climbing wall, a death defying trip around the ropes course at the top of the ship (Tim chickened […]

What an action packed day we’ve had! Whisked around at lightning speed from one historical site to the next, almost all of us are asleep again on the way back to our floating palace. Our tour guide was fantastic. Full of knowledge and humour, he did a great job of telling us a little about […]

After coffee in Starbucks, the kindly shop assistant phoned a maxi taxi for us to get to our cruise ship. There is only one way to describe the NCL Getaway – enormous. I […]

It was very strange to see the high quality paintings and sculptures on display with virtually no other people fighting to see them. Artists ranged […]

Our pace has been a bit frantic, so we opted for a low key day today. The weather has not been kind to us- most days it has been foggy with showers, and today it’s been raining for most of the day. The boys and I walked around our little town to see the remains […]

We had thought we would venture to Switzerland today, however the weather forecast was for snow at our destination. Instead, we did a drive through the National Park just up the mountain from our valley- the Parc Naturel Regional Des Ballons Des Vosges. Unfortunately, the weather proved to be against us in this as well. […]

We decided that we’d spend our day in Germany today. What a luxury to be able to choose that! It was a short 20 min drive over the Rhine to Breisach am Rhein, and from there we wound our way around pretty little villages, stopping occasionally to wander. We were even lucky enough to find […]
