7 Days

Hello there...
I'm home from a 7 day cruise in the Mediterranean and thought I'd share some photos of our trip just in case you are interested...Feel free to move on if not

Day 1 
We flew to Majorca to board the ship - The flight was late and we were kept standing in a very hot room and then in a queue on the tarmac for well over an hour...
Day 2 
Was a day at sea which gave us time to explore the ship and every evening we returned to our cabin to find a cutie waiting for us constructed from our towels

Day 3 - Sailing into Sicily

Due to me having sciatica my legs were pretty bad, fortunately we booked mostly coach tours for the whole cruise and here we visited a winery and had a mini cruise on a lagoon

And our cutie that night

Day 4 

We arrived in beautiful Sorrento to take a drive along the Amalfi coast... I've done this before but my hubby hadn't and truthfully you couldn't pay me to do it again ... It's stunning but terrifying for a gal who doesn't like heights!

But Amalfi, with it's little streets...'s stunning coastline 

And where lemons grow freely, is not to be missed

And this nights cutie...

Day 5 we headed for Rome
I have always wanted to see Rome, even if it was on a coach with a little free time for exploring but my legs got so bad I had to visit the ships medical center and thankfully they made sure I didn't miss a thing by giving me daily injections for the pain...
I made Rome, and instantly fell in love

Excuse some of these photos, they were taken through the window of a moving coach with my jaw on the floor Lol! Never did I think it would be so green and lush with flowers and trees everywhere

Seeing the Colosseum for real was really hard to comprehend

You may be wondering about all those holes, well the original Colosseum was studded with gold and jewelled embellishments that have all been removed leaving those holes.
I even got to taste the amazing sorbet

All too soon our visit was over...That night's cutie

A frog?

Day 6  I managed to capture the sunrise as we sailed into Corsica

What a gorgeous Island this is

These photos don't do it justice... It's so pretty and like a picture postcard
...and funny how my schoolgirl french came tumbling back - well enough to order drinks etc. Lol!
This was supposed to be our last cabin cutie 

But the lady who looked after us was so concerned about my health and wanted to make me happy that she managed to leave another before we left after Day 7 - Menorca

We'd never visited here before even though it's the next Island to Majorca and it's so lovely but very hilly... Just to get from the ship to where I took this photo was over 100 steps - Thank goodness for those injections

... And huge tree roots to rest on.

Our last cutie was E.T.... Yes ... "Home" was beckoning

I hope you enjoyed seeing my travels...

Have a lovely weekend

I'm moving on all right -- from picture to picture! My jaw was dropped the whole time. What gorgeous sights to see. Sorry about your sciatica, though. I hope that's improving. Sure can put a damper on things. Those towel critters are so cute! Quite a craft! I had to pin the lemon photo for color inspiration. Love those citrusy colors with the blue and white. I'm so glad you shared these photos, Ros!

Greta said...

Thank you so much for sharing the pictures, Ros! Love seeing the world through your camera lens! Love your outfits & at least it looks like you were enjoying the sights--so glad they could give you the injections. Those towel cuties are absolutely amazing! Bet you were glad to get home & see your son & the kitty cats! Hugs, Greta

Hi Ros.....thank you so much for taking me on your cruise with you...thoroughly enjoyed looked amazing. sorry you were in pain...I sympathise...I know how hard it is to walk when every step hurts.......but you bit the bullet...well done! Lovely photos and I adore all the creations made from the towels...someone with a different artistic talent! So is the washer whirring yet?

Davi said...

What a fabulous trip Ros! So many beautiful places to see. So sorry your were having sciatica problems, I know it can be SO painful! Glad you were able to get some relief and still enjoy your trip :)

Darlene said...

OH WOW! For a person who will probably never see the Mediterranean and it's surroundings, I truly enjoyed the tour you shared ... what beauty! But I too have a fear of heights so probably would be having heart palpitations through much of it in person! LOL What cute little 'towel creatures' to come 'home' to each evening! Thanks so much for sharing your cruise! I enjoyed the trip and thankful they could help you with your leg pain so you could enjoy it too!

Darnell said...

It was over all too soon! Thank you for sharing, Ros! I'm sorry you had to have injections, but thank goodness for them so you could get about as much as you did and see the gorgeous scenery ~ and enjoy the sorbet!! Great photos of you and that sunset shot is prize-worthy!! Take it easy and rest now. Hugs, Darnell

Mac Mable said...

So loved the photos. You went to some really interesting and fabulous ports of call. Sorry about your back but a you say thank goodness for the injections. Loved the fun towels (wasn't sure if the Frog was a Fox??). The weather looked kind for you and hope you had a restful time and managed some time on those loungers? Thank you for sharing x

Inkyfingers said...

Your trip looks fabulous Roz and I'm glad your poor legs didn't spoil it too much. You certainly saw some lovely places and those cuties bring a smile to the face don't they? They would have taken me longer to do that cleaning the room would have done lol! I hope your legs are better when you've had some rest.

Yout ook my breath away with these lovely photos. I'v e been to Rome once and promised myself to go back. Maybe we can go together:)
I am wondering what your docotor said about the pain in your legs. Hopefully there will be medication to solve it. If not I hope that at least you can go through the day without pain.

Maria said...

Oh, your photos looks so lovely, Ros! I do hope you had a wonderful time! It looks like you had great weather! The towels each day shaped in animals are too cute! I so hope your sciatica improves. I get that at times with the right leg. I do piriformis exercises and it does help. Take care and have a great week!

Tracy said...
