On both our Thomson cruises the ship had a band comprising of Asian singers and musicians and they were fabulous!

:lol: I did think about it (there was free wi-fi), but don't worry - I took some nice photos from the plane which I'll post when we're a little more sorted. ;)

By the way, we're back!

Especially for Tom... ;)

We had a good view of Dubrovnik from the plane:

I was amazed to see this island scene from 43,000ft:

These are islands off Zadar, and during an excursion we sailed through the part I've circled. Where the islands almost meet, there's a bridge - and here it is as we approached it. :D

I spent the Adriatic coast part of the flight with my nose pressed to the window. 8-)

Welcome home to you both. Really enjoyed reading about your trip, to some fabulous places. We'll probably look for a similar one, in the future. We've got two others to keep us occupied, in the meantime!! providing we can go to Turkey & Greece, of course!!

Funny you should say that Tom, because I did spend some time admiring the logo!

While I'm here, I must say again how much I like Thomson's 787 Dreamliners. :thumbup:
