Yesterday morning we left Cusco and flew firstly to Lima, then straight to San Jose in Costa Rica. The flight to Lima was fine but the one to San Jose was not good, there was a lot of turbulence and the fact we were flying with Taca Airlines didn’t help! We picked up our luggage… Continue reading Hola Costa Rica
Last night was our final night in Rio, so this morning we packed up our things and headed to the port to catch our cruise.

We got up at 8am and watched the highlights of the Royal Wedding. Everyone has gone crazy for Prince William and Kate and apparently 2 billion people are tuning in to watch the event.

Today we went… Continue reading Two Days Off

We checked out of our hotel this morning and took a short taxi ride to Honolulu’s port to board our cruise ship; NCL’s Pride of America. The ship is pretty big (holds 2,146 passengers) but not quite as big as the one we went on for our honeymoon (NCL Jade). The ship wasn’t due to… Continue reading Pride of America Cruise Ship
