San Diego

We found a reasonable priced cruise from San Diego to Victoria, BC and ending in Vancouver, BC. Thought this would make a nice short cruise and to visit family in both places. So yesterday we flew in to San Diego, and booked into a hotel within walking distance from the cruise terminal.

In December 2010 we cruised from Barcelona to San Paolo, Brazil. We met Linda and Rainer on board and had a great time. After the cruise, we’ve stayed in touch and visited their home in Laguna Niguel, about an hours north of San Diego. They drove down last night and we had a very pleasant reunion.

Our travels have allowed us to see some amazing sights, but just as important make new friends. We enjoyed our cruise 12 years ago and to follow up with Linda and Rainer. And had a great dinner thanks to the recommendation of Filippe’s from our our RV friends Susan and Ted…..

We cleaned up pretty well too

Cadiz, Spain

Our first stop of our cruise was in Cadiz, Spain.  This historic city is on the far west side of Spain, on the Atlantic ocean.  Not only is it one of the oldest cities in Spain, it has a rich history of sending explorers to the “new world”.  The city is small, with narrow streets and very walkable.  Lots of parks to visit.
