Seeing Europe by sea

Our holiday started at Southampton....on a rather large ship....so no flying involved.......yay.
and took us down the coasts of Spain and Portugal.......before entering the Mediterannean en route to the Balearic Isles........and then back up the Atlantic coast towards the UK.....with a variety of ports of call as we journeyed.
The 'Tour of Spain' in Vigo
The tram in Lisbon
Feeling at home in Gibraltar
Ultra modern buildings in Valencia
The wonder of Gaudi in Barcelona
Relaxing in Palma
Castle viewing in Ibiza
Admiring the policeman in Cadiz
Pop back for a more detailed look at where we went

It looks fabulous Jacky. There'll be plenty of scrapbooking to be done now then?!

I love your vacation pictures---all places I've never been. I had to smile at your mailbox picture because I took one when we were in London a couple years ago. I think they are so cute!

Sian said...

ps..I'll be interested to know what you think of the Cruise Line. It's great being able to go from Southampton, I think

What a trip! I'd be interested to hear about your cruise. My parents are contemplating going on one but aren't convinced yet so I am working on persuading them as I think they would love it!

A very enticing view of the vacation! Can't wait to see the details. These are all unfamiliar places to me.

Amy said...

Excellent! I love seeing your holiday snaps!

I recognize a few of the places there, but there are still some that I haven't that are on my wish list.
Never tried a cruise - although my friend is a huge fan of holidaying that way. Maybe one day ...

Looks like it was a wonderful cruise and on of our favourite cruise lines. Think I've finally got DH talked into a Med cruise. :)
