11 Sleeps to go...

Royal Caribbean Christmas Cruise - featuring Vanuatu, Noumea, Isle of Pines, Mystery Island +++ The Golden Jackals

all seasons in one day 23 °C

So you found us - we ain't been anywhere yet - but this is the place to come when we do - that's assuming that the cruise brochures etc are correct and I get some sort of WWW Access!!
This trip will be different to our last (for those of you who were lucky enough to be on the mailing subscription) 2009 Outback Trip - not only is there water involved, but I (Mum Jackal) have less control over most things.... food, overnight stays, the route etc. I don't profess to have control over the weather and I don't particularly care about it either - I think that this trip has been planned somewhat selfishly on my part - I'm there to do one thing..... relax - so my junior jackals better damm well enjoy it!!
Oh well, will be updating you after departure date - when I can that is....
Mum & Jackal boys 3

PS won't be uploading that many photos through this media for privacy reasons - I will let you know through other means of the Flickr address....
