Life moves pretty fast, …if you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it. Ferris Bueller
We just reached our second port of call on our transatlantic cruise, Malaga, Spain. The above quote probably sums up our last year. We have been moving pretty fast for years and last year and this are our years to stop and look around. We kicked off last year with our first transatlantic and spent great weeks in Rome and Umbria Italy, spent great time with friends in Palm Springs, road-tripped across the US to Utah and then North through Yellowstone and Montana and wintered in Florida. Great times and great experiences. Thanks to all of you who hosted us or helped us during our travels and gave us the time to start checking off some great bucket list items.
If you can find the time, I highly recommend a transatlantic cruise. They are typically two weeks across to Europe in the Spring or you can catch them in late fall coming back to the US. These entail repositioning the cruise ships for their high seasons either in the Caribbean or the Med. Our cost for all inclusive passage, meals and entertainment was less than $500/ person and a perfect vacation from the phone, email etc.
Attached a few pics from Funchal (our first stop). Best to all, G&P.
