Krakow
I'm eager for the world to open to Americans but until then we will follow your European travels. Krakow is one of those towns on the list. Many people say great things about it. It sounds like you found some quality local food. It seems to offer art, history and more. Thanks for taking us along.

Krakow
I'm surprised it is tricky for Americans to get into Poland; Is it that there is no direct flight, or more around the immigration piece with needing a visa? Krakow is the perfect tourist location as it offers a variety of things to see/do. I'd happily go back just for the food :)

What an extraordinary building Alan...a bit of this a bit of that. I have posted it in out Cathedrals, grand churches, mosques & places of worship thread in the Photography Forum. Check it out.

Hey Dave, good to hear from you. This building's architecture was designed I believe to blend in with the castle and perhaps that is what makes it extraordinary. Thanks for sharing on the forum :)

Thanks for the preview of a short visit to Krakow...
Linda has ancestors from Krakow and the surrounding area, so it is high on our priority list once Europe opens to Americans. We plan to visit Poland in 2022. It's also good to see that you are posting trips from 2017. With Covid shutting travel down, this is a good time to get caught up on past trips!

Krakow
Amazing that Linda has ancestors from Krakow and surrounding areas. I really hope you get to visit Krakow and Poland and meet any distant relations. Yes, I'm focused now so will definitely get caught up with the blogs. I hope you're both keeping safe and well

Bravo for a surprise trip!
Dave and I used to take turns planning surprise get aways. Some of them were very creative and always on a budget. We love staying in B&B's. It is great talking with other travelers and usually a fantastic breakfast. Thanks for taking us along on your exploring.

Surprise trip
Hi Merry-Jo, lovely to hear from you. Hope you and Dave are staying safe. It's great fun planning surprise trips as I love all the planning to putting an itinerary together and Fiona surprised me the following year with a trip. I am so behind on my blog writing but I am going to make time to try and catch up :)

Caribbean Cruising
What a wonderful way to celebrate your Mum's 60th birthday! A lovely family holiday. It seems taking a cruise is a really good way of seeing so many Caribbean islands in one go. A very inspiring read, thanks Alan 😊

Caribbean
Thanks! Yes definitely the best way to see lots of Caribbean islands and I know which ones I'd like to go back and see again :)

The perfect host
What a great host you are Alan. Stefano must have had a fascinating time. I am intrigued by the Round Table. If it was based on the legendary King Arthur is there any reason it was built some centuries after the legend began? It is beautiful.

Round Table
It's a good question. I think the honest answer is nobody actually knows. Winchester is linked with a 9th century King Alfred the Great and some people believe there could be a mix up between the two given the timeline is closer.

You had me at 400 year old pub
Glad Stefano had time to visit. I know you enjoyed his hospitality. Sounds like a great itinerary... I would especially like the ships. Great job. Keep those blogs coming. Love to know more about your area for our next trip to England.

England
If you guys like your ships, then you definitely need Portsmouth on your itinerary. Probably best if you visit in the summer time though as more daylight for sightseeing. You could even take a little wonder to Southsea and visit the amusement park, or catch a hovercraft over to the Isle of Wight. Would love to see you guys again :)

British Travelling
An enjoyable read, thank you! What a great idea to become a traveller and tourist in your own country! Wonderful to see Britain from a traveller's perspective :) And well done on becoming a home owner, in the south east! A very satisfying and worthy investment :)

Good German beer and food!
Good idea to do a weekend city break, though I also understand the differences between travelling solo and in a group... Glad to hear you made the flight, though that must have been stressful - 2 minutes to spare!! Good German beer and food to greet you on the other side though :) Sounds like a lovely weekend :)

Stressful
It was so stressful, especially when I am so used to arriving at the airport early. Just glad I got to have that lovely weekend after all :)
