Two weeks at work in the new job and need a holiday already. Oh! Good we have booked one

Two weeks into the new job and I already need a holiday. Fortunately we have just booked the next cruise. It is a while away though, we set sail on the 10th October 2008. We are going somewhere a little warmer than our last cruise which was to to Canada and Alaska.

It will be a great trip for both of us as Lyn will be going to somewhere she has not been to before. I have already visited several of the places we are going to, however, this was quite a few years ago on a back packing expedition but it will be nice to see what changes have taken place in the various destinations.

The cruise itinerary is as follows:

Day 1
Friday, Liverpool - UK
Day 2
Saturday, Ship at Sea
Day 3
Sunday, Ship at Sea
Day 4
Monday, Lisbon - PORTUGAL 08:00 - 15:00
Day 5
Tuesday, Cadiz - SPAIN 09:00 - 20:00
Day 6
Wednesday, Malaga - SPAIN 09:00 - 20:00
Day 7
Thursday, Gibraltar - GIBRALTAR 08:00 - 19:00
Day 8
Friday, Casablanca - MOROCCO 08:00 - 19:00
Day 9
Saturday, Portimao* - PORTUGAL 09:00 - 15:00
Day 10
Sunday, Porto - PORTUGAL 11:00 - 18:00
Day 11
Monday, La Coruna - SPAIN 08:00 - 18:00
Day 12
Tuesday, Ship at Sea
Day 13
Wednesday, Dublin - IRELAND 08:00 - 20:00
Day 14
Thursday, Liverpool - UK

Yes, this is a long time away but before that we have Christmas at Rothley in Leicestershire - see here then in May/June next year a week at the Derwentwater Hotel in the Lake District. I think we may also be going to Northumberland before the cruise. Might throw in a couple of days in London as well.

Just before I go here is a photo of a Robin taken at the same time as the post for ABC Wednesday "Q".

Wow! The cruise sounds good!
We have booked our holiday for next year...possibly touring Scotland but definately doing the TT in June. Had confirmation of ferry & accomodation bookings. It's our 20th Wedding Anniversary & Jon's 50th, so we should have a good time.

Thanks for comment, enjoy your holiday too.

Wow is right....14 days?! I am impressed...the only time we have been gone for 15 straight days was our honeymoon and that was a long time ago....we go on vacation but since my husband is in business for himself...if he doesn't work...he doesn't get paid....so 5 to 7 days is what we do. I am wishing you a great vacation even though it is next October!
Love the bird.
