But now we are here in Barbados. The good news is that we are out of our cabin and able to wander the streets of Bridgetown. The bad news is that I am booked on a flight at 5.10pm and my holiday is over.
We've made the most of it though, wandering the city, buying presents for the grandkids and enjoying the gloriously hot sunshine.

So, I set off another journey of planes, trains and automobiles to get me home. This time I experienced the automated monorail that gets you from one side of Gatwick Airport to another, which looked and felt very futuristic! Then there was the tube strike in London, which meant I had to get a bus across the city to Kings Cross. This took ages cos the bus didn't stop where it was supposed to, and of course it was freezing at 6 o'clock in the morning. But it wasn't a bad journey all in, and then all of a sudden, I'm back at home and getting myself ready for work in the morning, almost like I'd never been away.
So that's it for a while. The end of another wonderful Amazon Cruise. I have loads of photographs and this blog is my diary, all of which will remind of the fantastic places, people and wildlife I've seen. I am looking forward to the next cruise already.
