    ... turn is it to pay? I've grown accustomed to the first words I speak for the day being my coffee order! But we seem to have re-adjusted pretty quickly, and it's really nice to sit somewhere watching the world going by, and discussing your analysis with a comfortable companion! Taormina is set on a terrace of Monte Tauro, overlooks Sicily's Ionian coast, and is the Sicilian equivalent of the Amalfi coast, with much more of a resort feel than the places I've visited ...

    If we thought there were plenty of steps in Venice we soon discovered there are plenty more in Valletta. We are at the top of the hill near the national war museum. At 12 o'clock they set off the cannons. Today we walked around to get acclimatised. We found Michael's map very helpful. The streets are narrow and go up, up, up. There are cathedrals on just about every corner. We walked to the gardens next door for breakfast. When I say next door ...

It was cold and windy and steep and difficult with the ash being slippery underfoot. Once at the top it was incredible to look ...

    We had decided we would have a relaxing day at the resort today. Turned out I didn't feel so well so after breakfast we returned to the room to read, write emails, etc. While I had a nap G did some study.

By late afternoon I was feeling better so we still managed to have dinner at the terrace restaurant and knock off another bottle of ...

    ... a fantasy ballet/ musical that included some Cirque du Soleil type acrobatics. All good... PS As I have no photos today, I attach samples of 'towel art', an integral part of cruising culture. Each night when your steward turns down the covers, he leaves chocolates and a piece of towel art!! So if origami is ho-hum for you, this art-form could be the challenge you need. They even sell the Holland America Towel Art Book. (Seriously! This is not a ...
