Hello friends! Some of you guessed we were traveling during my little blog break last month. Yes we were. We boarded our train early in the morning and started on our journey to NYC. The morning was full of excitement as we began our trip that was only a dream in our minds.
We boarded the train along with our luggage for the easy ride north. A lovely morning greeted us as the train pulled into Penn Station in New York. After visiting the bank to exchange some money for pounds we hailed a taxi for our ride to the Brooklyn Pier. Usually there is no issue, but our taxi driver appeared to get lost. We went through the tunnel twice and then over the Brooklyn Bridge before finally reaching the Queen Mary 2. Yes, we are crossing the Atlantic on our way to England.
Boarding the Queen Mary 2 is so thrilling as we gaze at Lady Liberty.
The Queen Mary 2 is taking us to Southampton where we have a couple days to explore London. Of our previous visits to England we have never visited there. We are more of the country mouse style travelers. We love the countryside of Great Britain. This journey allowed us to take in a few sites there and then we traveled back to Southampton.
Back in Southampton we boarded the Queen Victoria to begin our reason for our journey. We traveled to the Norwegian Fjords!
I wanted to share a short overview/tease of our trip. Soon I'll share our adventure through the North Sea and into the Kingdom of Norway. I hope you will join me!
