May 27, 2017 12:00 AM Riga - A step back in time in the present

Riga - A step back in time in the present Another bank holiday another country. This time its heading to Riga. On first impressions it reminds me of Tallinn, Estonia, but the old town of Riga has an amazing modern feel. So many bars and restaurants.

Known as the capital of the Baltic, Riga is tiny, with an amazing amount of churches to visit, but enough stuff to keep me busy all day.

A MSC cruise ship was in town, so there were a lot of tour groups around town, but once they left is was much nicer walking around.

May 26, 2017 12:00 AM Riga - Something for the weekend

Riga - Something for the weekend On a recommendation from a friend, I headed to Riga, kind of excited.

I was told that the nightlife was really cool and wanted to see for myself.

My flight arrived in around 9.15 and ordinarily I would have thought it was too late. But being so far north, it was still light outside and I was able to travel down and find a bar before it got dark.

After a glass of wine I started to relax and had a fun night.

Apr 27, 2017 12:00 AM Caribbean Sunshine

Caribbean Sunshine I seem to be really enjoying visiting the Caribbean at present. In the last six months I've traveled to 7 islands as well as Cozumel, Mexico and Key West, Florida.
Each of the island are really so different. I mean they have the essentials which are the same - sun, sea sand. But each have their unique features and I suppose doing each of the islands once, makes enjoying so much more pleasurable.

Apr 26, 2017 12:00 AM Gozo and Comino

Gozo and Comino Taking a cruise out of the city is a great way to spend the day. Boats depart around 10am daily its all about choosing which company to go with; I chose Luzzu Cruises and it was alright. They took us to Gozo and Comino and provided free drinks on board.

Leaving Valletta the sea was very choppy and I have to say I would have preferred to have been on dry land, but all in all the day was great. Lovely whether for April. I can only imagine at the height of the summer how hot it would have been.

Apr 26, 2017 12:00 AM Strange happenings.

Strange happenings. I had an incredibly strange cruise with something different happening at each port. A man went overboard from another vessel (NCL) and we ended up searching for him; I believe a celebrity vessel picked him up however it was so unfortunate that he wasn’t found alive. Then they had to airlift someone from the ship, when we got to Labadee, which closed the path back to the ship causing huge delays getting back on board. Finally a passenger was taken off the ship in our last port of call delaying our departure as we watched them removing their luggage. I feel for all the people involved as it isn’t nice to be sick while away. But the staff and crew were really great and they looked after us all.

I had an amazing time, cruising the Caribbean and wish I could do it again.

Apr 25, 2017 12:00 AM The walled city of Valletta

The walled city of Valletta A lovely break in a beautiful city. I really enjoyed being there and had a great time walking around. There is a great feel for the place very quaint.

Apr 24, 2017 12:00 AM The largest city in Malta - Sliema

The largest city in Malta - Sliema I have a lot of clients who work here and was wondering what was the draw. I suppose this is the business centre of the country.

I hadn't done much research before I came so wasn't sure to expect. The first thing that struck me was the beach or lack off. Apparently there are only two sand beaches on the island. After just coming from the Caribbean there was no desire to take a deep into the Med.

Apr 19, 2017 12:00 AM Beautiful little St Kitts

Beautiful little St Kitts St Kitts is a wonderful little island. But it was so funny every time I asked a local for direction they always said they didn't know. It was the strangest thing I'd ever seen. But I had a nice journey around the island and would like to go back. I did met this nice guy who cut down a coconut and gave me some water to drink he was so nice and it was a really nice gesture.

Apr 18, 2017 12:00 AM Philipsburg

Philipsburg This is a really nice place to stop. I didn't do anything cultural but I so enjoyed the beach life. I didn't realize that a lot of people go there to shop, but that's not what I wanted.

I was walking along the pier when my hat blew off and into the drink. I can’t believe. It just bought it, what a waste of money.

I'm still yet to visit the French side but that is for another journey.

Apr 17, 2017 12:00 AM The island city of San Juan Puerto Rico

The island city of San Juan Puerto Rico I didn't realise that San Juan was situated on an island, and that they have a series of bridges which joins it to the mainland.

We actually got into the city 2 hours late because a man went overboard from an NCL vessel and we were ask to help in the search for him. We spend two hours looking but it turned out that a Celebrity vessel found him. It was the first time I had been involved with a search and rescue and it left me with an odd feeling as someone choses to end their life that way.

But in reality it didn't effect my day that much and we soon made up the time lost and it really allowed me to do everything during my day which I would have actually had to chose.

I would love to come back to the island and visit the beaches.
