A Tale of Two Ships and The Big Apple
About this blog
It started with thinking about a trip to Cuba, then Sri Lanka became another option, soon The Gambia, Ethiopia and Senegal where added to the mix and, if that were not enough, backpacking adventures in any or all of Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos and Burma all sounded brilliant. There was however one common thing they all shared, the year end supply and demand resulting in near tripling of flight prices!
Less than a week to go until we were on holiday without a destination and a search if "last minute cruises" changed everything... what started with a cruise that sounded good but without flights, a discussion with Patrick our cruise guide giving many suggestions during which I said I could decided between hot or cold weather, ended with us booked on not just one cruise but TWO! The Queen Mary 2 would be taking us across the Atlantic and the, after a stay in NYC, the Carnival Splendor will take us to The Bahamas for some sunshine. A far cry from all the backpacking adventures we have been looking at :-)
