Sep 23, 2016 10:00 PM Relaxing in style

Relaxing in style My first day at on board and its a sea day. I really wanted to try out the Carnival Vista as I have never been on a really large cruise ship. They boast of some really nice things like the sky ride, waterslides, IMAX, 4D thrill theatre. So I spent my day trying out them all out.



Sep 22, 2016 10:00 PM Finally the time has come

Finally the time has come I booked this trip back in February after talking about it for a year after getting back from my last cruise.

I had to work half day, well that was the plan but I ended up working until after 3pm then I had to make a made dash for the airport.

The shopping is south terminal seems to have gotten better and I really enjoyed meandering through the shops.

I didn't have much choice so ended up travelling with Norwegian Air and it was really nice. I was quite surprised that they advertised free wifi on the flight. The plane felt brand new and had lots of space. Unfortunately the wifi didn't work but the flight was really cool.

I decided to take a picnic onboard and I can honestly say this was the best mean I have had on a flight. Lol



Sep 22, 2016 10:00 PM Barcelona, Spain - La Ramblas

Barcelona, Spain - La Ramblas It should have been an really start. But I just wanted to relax and not do too much.

Over night I had a email from the cruise saying we should turn up an hour later as the liner would be arriving into port late. That is the first time that has happened to me and as we already had transfers arriving at 12pm we couldn't;t change it. So we got ready for that time.

I decided not to wait for the transfer and walked down to the port. I initially head for the La Ramblas and enjoyed some other minute sight seeing and shopping. From the top of the La Ramblas is a cruise ship shuttle for 3 euros.



Sep 21, 2016 10:00 PM Barcelona, Spain

Barcelona, Spain Got to the hotel really late last night and was really luck that I had transfers included. It was great seeing someone with my name on it so that took me straight to the hotel.

Today my group split into two: half decided to join the hop on and off bus tour and the others to cycle the city. The rent a bicycle is only around 12 euros a day which I thought was very reasonable. I should have really done a bit more research and chose one the the boris bike equivalent. But the thing which was cool was there were plenty of electric bikes and I enjoyed riding these. I know it was cheating but so much fun. When it kicked in I was just propelled forward. Really cool.

Barcelona was really warm. For late September I was so shocked. I havent explore the city in nearly 20 years - wow I can't even believe it's been that long.

Aug 28, 2016 10:00 PM Adventure to Leeds Castle

Adventure to Leeds Castle Leeds Castle is only around 50 miles from central London and it is located in Kent as opposed to Leeds which is what you would think.

Whilst it is easy to jump in the car, we left early around 7.30 and cycled. I followed a route Google provided and went through Essex and crossed the Thames at Tilbury. I didn't even realise that there was a ferry service at this part of the river but it only take around 15 minutes and costs £3.50.

I checked out the tickets online the night before which saved 10% as I was due to pay £24.95.

It was a great location for all the family and was a really enjoyable day out. I took a picnic as there wasn't much shops in the area. I throughly enjoyed the day and need to find something else to do next yr as this was the last of the bank holidays before Christmas.



Jul 01, 2016 10:00 PM Wimbledon - I so love this time of year.

Wimbledon - I so love this time of year. I had a great day at The Championship. Yet another year I got Centre Court tickets really good seats.

There was so much rain which was in line with how much rain occurred the week before. So the schedule was up the spout, so the players I saw as a little different.

But none the less it was a fab day starting with a picnic on Henman Hill, then on to Central to watch Andy Murray.



May 31, 2016 10:00 PM Still not happy

Still not happy It always amazes me when people cheat and steal. We have a world whether people try to get ahead by any means necessary and that really is a crying shame.
The way I see it now I just bought a Skoda in Romania, or at the very least I'm part owner.
But to my fellow travelers I would be wary of renting a car from AMS in Bucharest as they will conspire against you or as they said "drive safely!".



May 30, 2016 10:00 PM Bram Stoker's Count Dracula

Bram Stoker's Count Dracula My last day and I can't wait to get home. When bad things happen it is sometimes so hard to shake off.
But for my last day, I must enjoy myself as I will never, ever, ever, ever go back to Romania and I would go as far as saying to my friend never to do the same. It's not worth t. There are far nicer places to visit without someone trying to cheat you.
I booked a tour and headed for Peles Castle. And the castle was well worth the visit. The carved wooden pieces into were really nice.
After that I went to Bram's castle and it was fun uncovering the story of count Dracula and the reference to Vlad the Impaler. Really from my understanding is that the two are very different and Bram didn't even visit Romania before writing the book. And Vlad didn't even stay in the castle so it was all lies. But a great story.



May 29, 2016 10:00 PM A bad feeling

A bad feeling The antics of yesterday just left me feeling down. I can completely understanding paying more is I had caused a problem while driving but to be scammed is just not one. The car was hit on both sides and that just seems more than coincidental.
Any way I put it out of my mind and headed to the old town to take in some of the major sites. I saw so churches but all of them were being renovated so they were boarded up.
Still not happy with that silly car rental firm.
