It has been a busy week; so busy that I haven’t had time to blog really 🙁 AND also because I couldn’t get on here – computer problems. But it’s fixed now, and I have been told that I don’t write enough about myself on here (even though it is basically for my work) so I’m gonna tell you a bit about the week I spent on a Cruise ship!
Me and my sister caused QUITE a stir amongst the staff… we got royal treatment(you know when the Queen is walking into a room and everyone stands in lines at the sides? Yep, everynight at the restaurant!), made some of the waitors giggle like teenage girls, and also got a bit freaked out that all the staff knew our room number :S
Friday 15th May 2009 – Luton, England
We flew to Kerkyra airport, Corfu which is a Greek Island! The sky was b-e-a-utiful 🙂
I’ve always wanted to a decent picture of the view from in an aeroplane 🙂
In the morning we went to the lifeboat drill… and we attempted to make lifejackets look cool….
Hmn. What do you think? 2009’s Autumn/Winter trend? hah
There was plently of time for some posing… and getting lost on the ship. There were 9 decks and so plently to explore.
This is a mirror pic from the night of the Captain’s Cocktail Party. There was a bit of a joke about this with my Nan. She always gets lost (gets in the lift and ends up on a completely different floor to where she wants to be) and on a previous cruise she was lost and asked a lady where she was. The woman replied: ‘I haven’t got time to talk to you; I’m off to the Captain’s Ball.’ Haha 🙂 My Nan was not impressed! She is such a laugh.
Sunday 17th May 2009 – Aghios Nickolaos, Crete
A bit of posing on some steps that looked pretty. Later on we found this exact place on a postcard! Maybe I have a future in location scouting?
I was having a bit of trouble with the hand sanitiser machines… they didn’t like me!
Monday 18th May 2009 – Kusadasi, Turkey
We went on an excursion to see The ‘Virgin Mary’s’ House and Ephesus.
I kept my Graphic Designer eye open and spotted this small remains of writing in the Library at Ephesus.
I love their honesty 🙂
Tuesday 19th May 2009 – Thira, Santorini
I got to try some different cocktails in the evenings and am now addicted to Pina Coladas! They are tropical heaven 🙂 Cosmopolitans are nice too…
Wednesday 20th May 2009 – Piraeus, Greece (Near to Athens) and Thursday 21st May 2009 – Katakolon, Greece
These two days we didn’t really do much apart from a bit of shopping and sunbathing. If I’m honest, I was absolutely knackered by this point. We had been getting up at 7am and going to bed at 1am everyday and even though I usually do this at home, we was always on the go!
Friday 22nd May 2009 – Corfu and Flight home
We lazed about on the ship until the evening when it was back to Kerkyra Airport and back to England!
One thing I must say is… I love England. Being abroad just reminded me of how lucky we are to live in a nice clean, modern society with technology at our finger tips… and good shopping centres. I never understand the organisation of foreign shops, and they have naff fashion too lol
But all in all… I had such a great time. I was even too busy to miss college (when I went to Portugal with the ex I just wanted to be at college the whole time)! I would deffinitely go on another cruise!
