We've talked about this ever since we got back from our first foray together, in 2010, so it's been a while in the making. We're including a cruise in the trip, too. Originally we were wanting a Viking cruise that went from Bergen to Istanbul but the sailing dates for next year have been cancelled. I don't see why the fact that three of the ports of call were in DFAT No-Go zones is enough to cancel a cruise, but there you go. *g*. The one we've selected now is shorter, at seven nights, and sails from Southampton to Copenghagen via Belgium, Holland, Germany and Sweden. I can see we'll need to rewatch Danny Kaye's Hans Christian Anderson, just to get in the right frame of mind for our destination.
I can barely sit still I'm that excited, and my sister is already making lists of clothing to take. The countdown has begun!
