Sunday August 31 – Bon Voyage!
This post will be just a short update to let you all know that we are safely on board our floating home for the next 14 days and just leaving the port at Warwich, England.
Our ports of call will include:
- Paris (Le Havre) where we are booked on a day excursion to the D-Day beaches of Normandy
- Portland (Dorset) UK
- Cork (Cobh) Ireland
- Klaksvik, Faroe Islands
- Reykjavik, Iceland
- Boston, USA
We are all settled into our cabin, unpacked, have completed our safety drill and getting ready for dinner. I have not explored the ship much, so will update with more information and pictures over the next few days.
And just a quick shout out to anyone either living in England or traveling there, if you pass through Ipswich, be sure to stop in at a hidden gem of a restaurant for a meal @ Twenty 5.
Just recently opened, this family run operation provided us with one of the best meals we have had on our around-the-world journey. The food was fresh, deliciously prepared and presented in an artful manner.
Reservations are strongly advised as they do fill up and you don’t want to miss out. Prices are very reasonable, and the service pleasant.
Gratitude Moment: Today I am grateful to be heading back toward the USA. I am missing the comforts of home, seeing my son and friends. Still looking forward to having some fun and taking a picture or two along the way though!
