    Well have just got back from our 2 weeks Med Cruise following retirement.Now I know why I spent that money, on the Van I mean.:BigGrin:
    Day 1 of holiday up at 2am to travel to Manchester to sit around the Airport for 3 hours. Travel to Frankfurt to sit around for another 2 hours before final flight to Venice. Join the fight to reclaim baggage. Return journey dumped at Airport 6 hours before flight.:Angry: 12 hours later arrive home absolutely knackered.
    Walked down the drive and gave the Van a great big hug and kiss.:Blush:

    Oh the Cruise was OK put on another stone and 3 grand lighter as I said to the Boss, hope you enjoyed our last cruise. Off to York next week and neither of us can wait.:thumb:

    Tell me about it this was an American ship, you are charged 15% service charge on anything you buy and then they have recommended amounts you should leave your Room attendants and Restaurant Waiters on top of this which in my case was another $300 for the 2 weeks. In other words we pay most of their wages.:Eek!:

    Oooh am really glad I read your post - we were contemplating a cruise next year for our 20th wedding anniversary but the flying bit always gets to me - so think may just not bother and save the £3k. My parents have just gone on Med cruise on Friday and they were up and off at 3am flying to Frankfurt as well to go to Barcelona. My mum was definitely not looking forward to that bit.

    Makes MHing a lot less complicated when you take ya home on wheels with you.

    Of course its just the weather ... looking outside today .... did it ever get light?
