Since I retired I've taken to cruising and flying to European capital cities. I go away at least once a month and especially like Nice which I visit a lot at different times of the year. I also like the architecture and culture of Eastern European cities like Ljubljana, Budapest, Kraków and Prague. I particularly like Budapest and its stunning Parliament building and thermal baths but I also like the rugged coastline and beaches of Biarritz. I travel independently and don't generally book packages apart from cruises unless I fancy some sunshine in the Canaries, Greece or Northern Cyprus. I went on a world cruise in 2014 and it was spectacular so I'm saving for another in 2016. I've been to Rio twice and loved it, cruised back from South Africa and been on an Alaska cruise followed by a drive through the Rockies. My latest venture was a trip to Lake Garda taking in the opera at Verona and a water taxi along the Grand Canal in Venice. Travelling is a wonderful experience!
