Norway 2019

Standard

I am so happy to be back in Norway for the third time. Life is good! I’m fortunate to be working my passage by teaching crafts! How good is that?

Moored off Flam on a Lazy Sunday Morning

This particular cruise is just seven days long so we have just three planned projects. In some respects it’s harder than planning a longer cruise as there isn’t a lot of time to start a bigger project. I’m not complaining however.

Then there is always the gym!! I’m on a pre surgery fitness plan so am working hard. I need a new hip and don’t want it to affect my current wonderful life style!! “Sadly” there is also the food! And don’t forget Wine! But aren’t I a lucky girl?

Sail away Party with Cocktails

By the way I am enjoying the ship Boudicca one of the wonderful Fred Olsen fleet.

I will tell you more about our crafts in a later blog so watch this space!

Cruise Crafts Crete

Standard

I do like alliteration don’t you? As you may guess today I’m in Crete. Apparently the fifth largest Greek island and a great producer of olive oil. I did a tour around rural Crete. Field after field of olive groves and beautiful vineyards.

We visited a winery and sampled the local produce. We had a snack lunch in a Taverna which was lovely with the exception of the herbal tea. I’m a Morning Breakfast sort of a girl.

The weather was hot but with a gentle breeze. Perfect touring weather. I am told that September is the best month to visit. I haven’t , however had chance to see any beaches. So there’s nothing more to be said I will have to return. If it’s only to get some decent pictures.
