And so back to Oz. They were filming "Border Security" at the airport and all the Customs people had their best smiles on. Even the Beagles were smiling. Mercifully they didn't want to trawl through my dirty washing, and I didn't have ... Read more >

Hong Kong

HONG KONG | Friday, 24 Jul 2009 | Views [400]

The trip back to Hong Kong was ... well it's over. I was "lucky" enough to be sitting in front of a group of young Russian men who were determined to prove that the word "yob" applies equally to all nationalities. Russian men seem ... Read more >


Mama Mia! Land of Ikea

SWEDEN | Saturday, 18 Jul 2009 | Views [565]

If you didn't know better, you could think that Ikea and Nokia are two Norse Goddesses. Maybe they were... Our last port on the Cruise is Stockholm and I've been looking forward to visiting Sweden for some time. Partly because one of my great grandfathers ... Read more >

Land of Nokia

FINLAND | Friday, 17 Jul 2009 | Views [447]

In contrast I really do like Helsinki. It's calm and peaceful and just seems sure of itself. And it has a church that I really like - called "The Rock Church". Originally it was a hill of granite and the hill was hollowed out. The grantite ... Read more >

Babushka

RUSSIAN FEDERATION | Thursday, 16 Jul 2009 | Views [320]

I'm going to be a spoilsport and say that I wasn't overly fond of St Petersburg. There are amazing buildings and museums and castles full of paintings and gilded things and furniture, but it somehow feels like someone has bought a whole lot of stuff ... Read more >

Medieval Treasure

ESTONIA | Tuesday, 14 Jul 2009 | Views [351] | Comments [1]

The highlight of the Cruise for me so far would have to be Tallinn - about which I knew almost nothing. But the "Old Town" here is an exquisite Medieval Town with turreted walls and medieval houses, churches, restaurants and even a Pharmacy ... Read more >


Life is a cabaret my friends

GERMANY | Sunday, 12 Jul 2009 | Views [388]

I'm writing all this on the same day but splitting it up so that I can add each country separately. Next destination was Germany. We docked at Warnemunde which is about 2 - 3 hours by train from Berlin. I know because the ship hired a train and took ... Read more >

I hope everyne appreciates the effort I'm going to to keep this up to date as I'm on the "Norwegian Jewel" and they charge an arm and a leg per nanosecond for the slowest service possible! So I'm typing really fast while I still have my hands.... Read more >

Cheese and Chocolates

SWITZERLAND | Monday, 6 Jul 2009 | Views [421] | Comments [2]

The flight from London to Geneva is about 1 hour 20 minutes. Security and check in plus immigration adds another 2 hours; the train to the airport outside London adds another hour or so and the Tube to the train station ... Add that the Internet tells ... Read more >


Searching for Avalon

UNITED KINGDOM | Monday, 29 Jun 2009 | Views [340]

I've just finished my Celtic Pilgrimage to Devon and Cornwall. If there is such a thing as past lives, I'm sure I've lived one in this part of the world. The standing stones - Stonehenge and Avebury as well as the hundreds that just dot the landscape ... Read more >
