The Cruise Show at Olympia, London

Well I had a lovely visit to the Cruise Show at Olympia on Saturday 26th March. Entered lots of competitions to win some cruises, and subscribed to a couple of good magazines, one of which is Food and Travel. Looks a great combination for a magazine, with different recipes from around the world and lots of hints and tips for eating when visiting various places.

Hubbie found out where we are going now for our anniversary. Initially he didn't know we were going on a cruise, until he found the bank statement! Now he found the Royal Caribbean brochure and sussed out the day we were going and found out the itinerary. We are going to be visiting, Malaga, Valencia, Rome, Florence, Pisa and Ajaccio in Corsica. I am really excited as I haven't cruised for many years.

After our trip to the show, we took a side trip to Harrods in Knightsbridge and treated ourselves to a lovely fattening, chocolate sundae. Expensive but it was lovely!! Luckily we missed out on all the rioting that was going on in London. Nothing to do with the real protestors, but the cause of the "rent a yob" gangs.

Well off now to continue my reading in bed with my Kindle.
