On the Yangtze…..

Whilst on our tour in China we had a 3 night River Cruise down the Yangtze – it was fantastic!

The tour was 12 days in total so after seeing Beijing, Pingyao, Xian & Chengdu we headed off to Chongquin to board the MS Kararina which is one of Victoria Cruises ships.

2019 so far…

2019 hasn’t been kind to me & my family so far but I’m hoping it can only get better.

Not looking my best but hubby took this as I’d finally fallen asleep.

Bigger is better or is it?

Does size matter?

It does when it comes to cruise ships for me anyway but all cruisers are different.  I have customers who will only sail on small ships and some that want a big ship.

High Seas or Rough Seas!!

Last weekend we headed off onboard Cruise & Maritime’s ‘Marco Polo’ ship for our annual Christmas Conference.

I love going to conference as working from home you only speak to colleagues so lovely to meet up and spend time with them.  We always have a really good time.

Family time – happy & sad!

I love my family to bits and do miss them as I’m in Coventry and they are up North so can’t just pop round for a brew and a catch-up.  I go as often as I can to see my mum who is in a home and stay with my sister for a few days.

Summer in October!

I have just returned from a little jaunt to Torquay with my husband Adam and some friends for a birthday celebration.

There were 6 of us, our friends & my colleague Teresa & her husband Paul and Tom & Sue our friends.  It was Sue’s birthday hence the reason for the trip.  Adam & I and Tom & Sue went last year for my birthday for a couple of nights and loved it so Sue wanted to go back for her birthday on 25th October.

Fast as a Bullet!

On my trip to China in August this year, we went on 3 bullet trains to get around China.  This was a great experience and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Our first one was from Beijing to Pingyao after our 3-night stay.  We had an early start as the train was at approx 08.05 am but with Beijing traffic, it can take over an hour to get to the station.  We left at 6.15 am to make sure plenty of time. Check-in was pretty smooth as our guide Andy came through with us to the platform to ensure we got on OK.
