Hi from Spain!
Posted on Jul 02, 2013 by
We`re on the cruise now, having a great time. Venice was as exciting as expected. The weather was cool which is normal there at this time but it didn`t rain so we got to see tons of sites. No amount of days is enough in Venice!
Malta was lovely. We travelled around on their `antique` busses, quite an experience, lots of fun. The islands are really interesting, lots of history. Our hotel was another one of Bill`s treasures, called The Victoria, which describes it well, very stately, large room, excellent service, and food! We really enjoyed our 11 days there, lots of walking, beautifull promenade along the waterfront 3 minutes downhill from our hotel. This is definitely a place to return to. The cruise has been great as always. The weather has been good.
Naples, Livorno, Genoa, Cannes, Barcelona, and today Cartagena. Favourites so far: Genoa and Barcelona, both beautiful cities, also places to do again for several days.
Next: Gipaltar, Cadiz, then Madeira island, and then the transAtlantic voyage.
The weather has become progressively warmer as we`ve moved south. Today the forecast said 20C. degrees, but it felt warmer under pilliant sunshine, as we sat at the pool after a morning stroll around Cartagena.
Hope all are well.
