11 night Southern Caribbean cruise – Celebrity Equinox (May 15-26)

We booked our 11 night Southern Caribbean cruise with Celebrity back in July 2016 via http://www.crucon.com during one of their big sales. Celebrity Cruises and Crucon.com had an amazing deal for this cruise onboard the Celebrity Equinox because it was originally supposed to sail around Europe. So, when Celebrity canceled the Europe route, they had to … Continue reading 11 night Southern Caribbean cruise – Celebrity Equinox (May 15-26)

Dutch or French? St Maarten or St Martin? 🍺🍻🥂🍷🥃🍸🍹🍾

Gambit and I were in St Maarten in 2008. During Hurricane Omar. We visited the island with Gambit’s parents and stayed at the Royal Palm Beach Resort (I think – I mean, it was almost 10 years ago!). What I did remember from the trip, apart from buying a lot of ice cream, watching the … Continue reading Dutch or French? St Maarten or St Martin? 🍺🍻🥂🍷🥃🍸🍹🍾

🚤 Sailing around St Lucia (with No Links tour)

We docked at Castries in St Lucia with the plan to get a tour from a local operator so we’d see parts of the island. We had decided to look for a tour with the Welsh couple we made friends with on board the ship. Once inside the terminal we had many options. Hmmm… that’s … Continue reading 🚤 Sailing around St Lucia (with No Links tour)

Trekking around Barbados 🚌 🏖 ⛰

We docked at Bridgetown, Barbados. The terminal was a bit more developed looking compared to the other ports we’d stopped at. The terminal featured a lot of little stores selling duty free items, souvenirs, cigarettes, ice-cream, and alcohol. The taxi and tour operators were available once we stepped out of the small shopping area. At … Continue reading Trekking around Barbados 🚌 🏖 ⛰

In love with Valley Church Beach, Antigua ❤️

We arrived at St John’s, Antigua without much of a plan. The Fodor’s guide suggested that if we didn’t want to travel too far to a beach to go to Dickenson Bay (10-minute taxi ride). Gambit and I decided that we didn’t want to travel too far from the ship so both agreed to go … Continue reading In love with Valley Church Beach, Antigua ❤️

Our tour of Virgin Gorda Baths – British Virgin Islands 

Our Celebrity cruise docked at Tortola, British Virgin Islands and went on a shore excursion booked through Celebrity. The tour was called the “Tour of Virgin Gorda Baths” which was 4.5 hours long, and advertised as strenuous but the photos I found on the internet made it look appealing enough for me just do the … Continue reading Our tour of Virgin Gorda Baths – British Virgin Islands 

DIY Beach Hopping on St. Thomas – Coki Beach, Sapphire Beach & Magens Bay Beach 🏖

St Thomas has two cruise ports. Celebrity usually docks at Havensight port however we docked at Crown Bay port the day we arrived.

When we docked, we walked off the ship to … Continue reading DIY Beach Hopping on St. Thomas – Coki Beach, Sapphire Beach & Magens Bay Beach 🏖

TBT: Breakfast at Cafe 63 – New Farm Park, Brisbane

I promise this will be the last Throwback Thursday to Brisbane. I understand not everyone loves Brisbane as much as I do. It's not hard to guess that I still have a soft spot for my hometown, right?

TBT: Lunch at Dandelion & Driftwood, Brisbane

Gambit and I popped into Dandelion & Driftwood for lunch when we were in Brisbane. I found Dandelion & Driftwood online when I searched for places in Brisbane that had excellent coffee. Upon our visit, we were not disappointed. I ordered a mocha and it was the waiter's suggestion to have the Driftwood Blend. For lunch, Gambit … Continue reading TBT: Lunch at Dandelion & Driftwood, Brisbane

TBT: That time we went to Yatala Pies, Brisbane

On our last visit to Brisbane in March, Gambit and I stopped off at the famous Yatala Pies. I love a good meat pie and Yatala Pies are great.

The menu is quite extensive and feature flavours from the … Continue reading TBT: That time we went to Yatala Pies, Brisbane

A beautiful … Continue reading Throwback Thursday: Our Honeymoon aboard the Celebrity Century

3 nights in Vancouver (is not enough!)

Day 1 We docked into Vancouver port early Wednesday 14 September. We opted to walk to our hotel instead of lining up for a taxi because the queues were super long and Google maps said our hotel was only a 15 min walk away. I immediately took to Vancouver. It might have been because of … Continue reading 3 nights in Vancouver (is not enough!)

Cruising Alaska on the Island Princess (Sept 7-14)

On our most recent trip we went on a cruise to Alaska, and then spent a few days in Vancouver. I must say that this trip was one of the best holidays in my life (it didn’t beat my 30th birthday extravaganza or honeymoon, but I’d say it would make my top 3). Below was … Continue reading Cruising Alaska on the Island Princess (Sept 7-14)
