Summer Holiday

Many thanks all for your guesses! The main man can be a bit impetuous sometimes and as you do know we have really just got back from China, which I am still recovering from! Summer vacation is not until end of June, however it is booked!

We have booked to go on a cruise of the Baltic. Now cruising is not really my thing, however as I try and be frugal, the main man came across a wonderful deal.

This will be my first cruise, and knowing how much I love Ocean Liners I cannot wait.

So we are cruising via Holland America to Copenhagen, Germany, Tallin,St Petersburg, Helsinki and Stockholm, with 3 days in London.


  1. Hello David:
    This sounds absolutely wonderful! Like you, we have never really thought that a cruise was quite us, but this sounds so very tempting and takes in so many places we should like to visit. We are sure that you will have an incredible time and do hope that the holiday will become the subject of future posts.

  2. We'll look forward to many exotic postings!

  3. How exciting! I am a total cruise virgin but would love to get the first one under my belt! I have heard really good things about them...the biggest plus is the variety of sights you get to see since it is like a "tour boat".

    If you are looking for a stowaway...I am here for you :)

  4. I'm so happy for you.
    My friends went on that same cruise last summer and LOVED it!

  5. I got it quite right...what's my prize?!
    Suddenly I want to sing 'love boat' tv theme song, David!

  6. I have arrived late for the guessing game, but the choice would suit me too. I cannot imagine that it has been nothing but perfectly organized with such exquisite passengers. I am looking forward to the tips coming from the trip itself! I have never gone on a cruise myself, yet.

  7. Oh I love Copenhagen- I've been to Helsinki too but in the Spring and it was a bit cold still.
    Sounds like a lovely trip- I am not a cruise person myself although I have done a Greece and Italy cruise and it was fun-

  8. Needless to say, I can't wait to see the travel photos!
