Bill, Margie & Katie - We'll be traveling to UK, France, Italy and Croatia for 5 weeks from May to July.
Spending about 7 days in UK traveling around a bit - nothing really planned cept have Oyster passes and britrail passes so we'll go with the flow, visit family, look at the so-old-so beautiful history, shudder at the prices. From there we train it to Paris for a couple of days before jumping on a plane to Milan - Italy (1 day). From there we train our way to Lucca to meet up with the mad manurheads and their offspring / partners / minders etc for 7 days in a Villa just outside of the walled town. Then we all go our separate ways for a week (to recover).
For our part, we're teaming up with big bro Richard, Feathers and Kit where we'll train our way to Ancona, catch the o/night ferry to Split in Croatia, jump on a Lagoon 38 Cat and sail around bits of the Adriatic - learning the local sailing customs and trying not to bump into superyachts. Richard has put me down as skipper for that bit. Thanks....Then.....the rest of the mob (well nearly all) will meet us back in Split, we transfer to two larger Cats and we do it again for another 7 days. (Can never have too much sailing).
And that'll be about it. So We'll see how I go keeping this updated??!!
Well we're home now and it was a wonderful trip. Hopefully I covered it in summary in the blog. It's a handy record to remind us of how fantastic it all was.
