Oceans and Seas » Mediterranean » Adriatic Sea November 10th 2012

Evening everyone, we have had another wonderful day here on the Adriatic Sea, we awoke this morning to find that we had land in view out of the window and the sun shining it was a glorious day already. As we sailed in we were priviledged to experience the wonderful fjords that welcomed us as we travelled through them into Kotor that is a true gem within the Adriatic Sea. The Captain explained to us re these Fjords and very nicely provided us with a view of this beautiful church that is on an island and is in fact the only thing on that island, it was very quaint and beautiful and I said to Col imagine going to church on a Sunday by boat. We travelled out of that fjord onto another waterway, the water ... read more

Well yesterday I said that Split was beautiful well tonight I have to tell you that Dubrovnik is amazing lots of wow moments again today.. and I was told at dinner time by one of the senior staff on board that tomorrow is another amazing day. Col and I awoke as the ship backed into its parking spot at the pier beside a massive suspension bridge which was most impressive as a first glance out of the window at 8.30am as well as being in front of two other cruise liners... mmm first time we have arrived into a port where there have been two other cruise ships already docked and I wondered what the city was going to be like with so many people trying to get around however I think they must have been ... read more

Well I don't know about Col but I had an amazing sleep last night and even better as we had a sleep in this morning as our boat wasn't docking until 10am this morning so the tour couldn't start until 10.30am. Our breakfast was bought up to us and we decided we would eat it on our balcony, very posh..... the sun was shining the sea was sparkling and we could see the many islands that make up this area as we slowly moved forwards towards Split. A wonderful way to start the day I could get use to this... Having docked we got onto our bus for a trip to the old city of Split, the town of Trogir and then onto a little village for some traditional food, wine and music... I have to ... read more

This morning we docked in Ravenna in Italy about 7.30am and Col and I were off the ship by about 8.30am for our tour. We were off to San Marino a medieval township which is an independant Republic and sits on the top of a mountain top. It was about 1.5hrs drive by bus from the township of Ravenna, it was wonderful as we drove up the hillside to see the turrets of the township sitting on top of the mountain. It was like walking around a town that was in a timewarp, I loved every moment of it, this little republic is the 3rd smallest in the world and has their own coins and holds elections every four years to appoint their political decisionmakers, and if they dont like what they do they can change ... read more
