People keep asking where and when we will be on our trip! So we have put together a simple version of our itinerary for you to follow. You can find it under the OUR ITINERARY tab on the top menu or click on the following link: help to find us.
I hope this helps you discover where we are for the next eight months.
Well with only two weeks to go it is getting pretty exciting. On Friday last week we heard from Cunard that we have been upgraded and now have a cabin with a balcony! This will make the trip even more special.
On Saturday our Audley paperwork arrived by special courier. It is all held in two Filofax folders and looks very professional.
So now its the time to start checking we have everything we need before the mass panic (or as Kim says, the orderly departure) next week.
Tuesday and Wednesday this week we went to Oxford to celebrate Izzy graduating from University and being 21 (big week!). As you can see from the photo’s we had a great time and we are both so proud of her. In fact, we are proud of the whole family for everything they have achieved; especially mum!
We have also received the paperwork for our USA rail tour, New York to Vancouver via Chicago, Glacier National Park and Seattle. It looks like we are going to be busy.
We had a great weekend in Shaftesbury and caught up with some old friends. Mark and I had to watch the sport on Saturday, while the ladies went into town. We did not spend all our time in front of the TV, we visited two National Trust sites, Stourhead and Montecute. These are two fantastic places and well worth a visit if you are ever near them.
Yesterday we heard from Cunard about our voyage. We have received our tickets and instructions to be at the port at 15:00 on 17 July for embarkation. No news yet on what time we sail but as high tide is at 22:37 I expect it will be quite late. We have also received our tickets for the Princess cruise as well.
