Our Magical Mediterranean Adventure 8-18th June 2011 *Completed*

I have finally plucked up the courage to try to sort through my navigators and the thousands of photos to try and do my first trip report. They were so helpful to me when planning for this trip so hopefully someone will enjoy reading it. Who am I kidding, it's actually because I am so unbelievably miserable it has ended that it's all I have left to look forward to!

So this is our first cruise, first Disney holiday and am sure it wont be the last. I'm actually surprise how easily I have been so sucked up by a corporate giant!

We booked the trip in January this year after I pursuaded my husband he would enjoy it. He actually admitted today when we were chatting to some friends that he loved every minute

So once I have worked out how to upload a photo, my report will begin.....

Ha ha Janey, I know what you mean! We accidentally got sucked in on honeymoon 16 years ago, we are now DVC members at 3 resorts and have been every year for 16 years, now with 3 kids! We are off on the 20th July on the med cruise. On points! I am completely obsessed, we have made so many fantastic memories which will last a lifetime, have you booked Florida yet?!

Hi! Good luck with the postings! We'll be watching with a lot of interest. We were on the 11-day just in front of you and also had a superb time (also on DVC points as noted by another poster)

We have gotten a bit more than halfway through at this post: http://www.disboards.com/showthread....post&t=2738882

Looking forward to your pics!!

I can see how easily it is done! I went to the DVC presentation but obviously for us being in the UK it wouldn't be of much benefit (really I just wanted to win the $300 onboard credit)

I can get started as soon as someone tells me how I can upload a photo! It is wanting a webiste address but the photos are on my computer. Did a practise facebook one but it didn't load

Load the photo up to imageshack or photobucket beforehand, then take the link from there and use that one

I'm about halfway through my report of the cruise - link is in my sig if you're interested in comparing - but good luck! I know sorting through my photos just made me want to take off for the Med once more..!

PS: I also went to the DVC presentation.. definitely mostly for the $300 credit

Janey we live in the UK and buying into DVC was the best thing we ever did! You can use your points all over the world!

Not sure how I missed that?! I could see how it could be of benefit if you go regularly. They mentionned something about the points for the places other than the US being less, is that correct?

Thanks wandergirl. I'm owkring so cant use those sites but will have a try shortly and hopefully get started!

Day 1 - London to Barcelona

We flew out of Luton with EasyJet mainly due to the low cost of the flights. It was only a 2 hour journey and Georgia loved the bad patch of turbulence (Mummy was sweating!) . We arrived in Barcelona at about 1700 local time and decided that we would hop on the Aerobus instead of taking a taxi. It was easy to find and cost 10.40 Euros. We got off at the second stop and stepped into the map to find our hotel… and then the rain started! Our hotel was a short walk and an absolute bargain! I still don’t know how I managed to find such a good deal. We paid £42 for a triple room with kitchenette and breakfast! The kitchenette meant I could cook a quick and cheap pasta meal as Georgia was ready for dinner when we arrived.

Coffee stop number one of our European adventure - the USA!


Doggie enjoying the flight


I had planned to head over to Casa Batllo but due to the torrential rain we didn’t get far. We purchased some wine at a bargain price from the local supermarket and had customary sangria at a local bar. Despite my degree in Spanish the waiter had thought I had asked for an apple for Georgia (instead of an apple juice) and had almost sent one of his lads to the local supermarket before the confession was discovered! The rain was so bad we all got drenched.
