“busy Bus” In Wales
Before I left for my cruise, I did my homework in finding other tours since ship tours are getting pricey. The drawback is that they better get you back on the ship on time otherwise you’re on your own to get to the next port; the ships tours if late,…

Cruising Solo
My biggest love the last few years is cruising. The huge downfall is paying the single supplement. And before you ask, no I don’t want to share with strangers (some cruise line has the share program). In fact, I don’t really want to share with anyone at all. I want…
