Highcliffe, UK

Signing off!

Our welcome home.

Well, that’s it, our round the world adventure has come to an end and we are back home in Highcliffe. Our journey home took us via Brussels to London on Eurostar and then home from Waterloo. We completed our circumnavigation when we crossed Southampton Water and could see across to the docks where we boarded Queen Mary 2 last July. What an adventure it has been, we have memories to last a lifetime and hope you have enjoyed following our journey through this blog.

  1. Welcome back. A very expensive way to lose weight – I think I’ll have to find other means!

    Enjoy the house hunting.

    Best wishes


  2. Thanks to you both for the blogs – they have been brilliant! Made following you really enjoyable. I´m sure you will really enjoy re-reading them all in the future.


  3. What a brilliant trip – have we seen ALL the pics you took or can we look forward to more when we see you! It has been really great to follow your grand tour and also to hear about all the delicious meals/snacks …
