About Me

Since Apr 2007

Lives in Tyne and Wear

65+ year old male

We used to do motoring holidays in Europe, particularly France but now we are older and prices are so much higher in the Euro-zone we have virtually given up this in favour of cruising and escorted holidays (not cheap coach tours). We find that the lifestyle on the better mid size ships suits us fine, our favourite so far being Grand Princess. Its just like being in a posh hotel at sea, waking up to something different each day. Popular though Fred Olsen is, we found that to be more like a geriatric Butlins. (We could have gone to a Warner hotel for the same experience without leaving dry land). After years not flying, after travelling for the job, we now tfeel the need to fly to visit new destinations. Our favourite holiday has been a Titan escorted tour of New Zealand which we repeated in 2014 on a different itinerary. Despite loving travel - getting home is even better.
