The Lord will fulfill His purpose for me; Your love, O Lord, endures forever ~ do not abandon the works of Your hands. Psalms 138:8

Trip of a Lifetime

We have been planning this trip for over a year now....and dreaming about it for even longer. 
This is a big deal for us....Bob had been to London last year for the first time. and I had never been across the ocean to anywhere in Europe.  So it was all new to us...and it SO exceeded our expectations...we are so thankful for the opportunity to travel and meet so many interesting people, experience different cultures, and enjoy a part of God's world that we had never seen before.

Grab a carafe of coffee and get comfortable
There are several posts as we were away for a full month and there were several components to our trip.
Cruise/Rome/Paris/London/English countryside

I hope you enjoy travelling along with us on our adventure!

This is where our adventure began....Miami, Florida.  It was stormy and we thought this would be the start of a stormy cruise.....boy were we wrong!
(click on the photos to enlarge)

We cruised out of port into perfect weather....warm and sunny day, after day after day....simply lovely!

This photo is to show the very worst waves we encountered on the cruise....most of the time the water was like glass....gorgeous!

Dressed up for one of three formal nights....our cruise was 15 days long.

Our dinner mates....Zoila and Bill, Eve, Gerry and Carla.  We so enjoyed Gerry and Carla, a dear christian couple from Florida.
Sunset...look at the amazingly calm!
Land-ho!  After 8 days at sea we landed in Tenerefe, Canary Islands off the coast of Africa.
It was great to simply walk the streets of the city and explore the gorgeous parks and gardens.
Back on the ship for another couple of days of sea travel....up and around Africa through the Strait of Gilbraltar into the Mediterranean Sea.
