Cabin with balcony on MSC Sinfonia

After Florence and Venice, Steve and I embarked on our East Mediterranean cruise on board MSC Sinfonia. The cruise took us from Venice in Italy to Split in Croatia, Santorini and Mykonos in Greece, Dubrovnik, Ancona and back to Venice.

Afternoon tea at Fortnum & Mason in London

InterContinental Marseille – Hotel Dieu, an A-maze-ing hotel

After our stay in Bordeaux we travelled cross-country to Marseille, to enjoy some final days of Mediterranean sun before winter. Our hotel of choice was the InterContinental Marseille – Hotel Dieu, as I was able to book a room last-minute using points.

Tate Modern in London

Danny and I never visited Tate Modern, until August. It was time to visit this landmark across the City of London.

InterContinental Bordeaux le Grand Hotel

During a short coast to coast trip through southern France our first stop was in Bordeaux, a city both Timothy and I have been wanting to visit. As we both like our share of luxury we decided to stay in the InterContinental Bordeaux Le Grand Hotel.
