Once upon a Time we made Plans…….


Evening as we left Isafjordur in Iceland.  It had been another grand day of discovery for us on our first tour of Iceland.   Like many folk used to travelling, we have over the past few months been wondering if we ever will get to go wandering again.   Despite the best efforts of our favourite cruise line, who assure us that there will be more happy days to come, tales of new ships, changed itineraries ready to drop into place….’sometime’ …. it all seems a little like fantasy to dream.

Hard to be positive, but without that ability to travel, near or far, without meeting new people, new cultures, new adventures, we will miss those opportunities to learn, to be stimulated.  Who knows what and when things will get back to some kind of normal, let alone days like the ‘Old Days’ 

Only glad we were able to make so many memories…

Please Remember ….

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other

  1. I suspect it will be a very long time until things return to the way we so easily accepted them as being the reliable norm–if they ever do. This has been–and still is–a long-overdue wakeup call to seriously re-think our complacency.


  2. Firstly they will need an effective vaccine for the Covid-19. Next, they will require a medical certificate from all passengers before boarding and probably reduce the number of passengers in order to leave more room to move about. Possibly serving meals at different times a.s.o, but that will increase the costs . . .
