Report on Mediteranean Cruise

f

I went on a cruise with my family in October and thought I'd post up my blogs on the trip. I'm quite loquacious, so you can skip to the pictures if you want: I took over 1000 and still have two days of Istanbul and one day of London that I haven't processed yet.

I'd say that the first half of my trip was not so successful in finding local fare, but it gets better, culminating in my last vacation meal at Restaurant Gordon Ramsay in London on my way back home (I'm not counting the hideous AA pizza as a meal).

Hope you find it interesting...
