Congratulations on passing!

It seems like you've been working on your accounting qualifications for sometime now and i'm sure you're glad it's all over!

And another big YAY for paying off the balance on your cruise!

Sounds like smooth sailing for you right now

Thanks everyone! I had my work experience signed off this week too, which means I'm an 'offical' chartered accountant lol - it's not really sunk in, no more studying ever!
I've treated myself to a new ipod nano (pink, of course!) to celebrate being qualified today


Also today, I've bought Red Sox tickets for our trip to Boston!! We've never been to a baseball game before, so really looking forward to it




Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

Congratulations on passing everything! I'm pretty jealous about your Boston plans too! Boston is my favorite city (apart from my own, Chicago). There are so many things to do there and a lot of them are free or cheap. If you have time make sure to walk the Freedom Trail. It's a bunch of landmarks around the city that were important to the independence cause. There is also a Holocaust memorial across the street from where part of the trail runs. It is really powerful and chilling. The Red Sox should make for an awesome baseball game too! My second favorite after my White Sox you're going to have so much fun!

Even though I'm a San Francisco Giants fan, you're going to love it! There's nothing better than being surrounded by thousands of people cheering for the home team, while drinking a beer and eating a hot dog. It's quite an experience and love doing it every year!

Hi! Thank you so much for the sight-seeing ideas in Boston, we're so excited to be visiting a new US state and city as part of this vacation

Hi Lesha - I'm really looking forward to the baseball game! I've been to a lot of football (soccer) matches with DH, but never baseball.. I'll have to learn the rules of the game before we go, there's a game here called 'rounders' which is similar, I think!





Hi everyone!
Just realised how long it's been since I posted on this PTR... I guess it's been quite a quiet time for trip planning - however, yesterday we reached the 90 day mark before we sail away on the Fantasy, which meant ... time to book cruise activities

As it's our second Disney cruise, we're now in the Castaway Cay Club, silver level, which lets us book activities at 90 days rather than 75 Unfortunately for us, due to the time difference, the booking window opened at 4am (12am EST)... so which crazy Disney/planning fan got up very early Sunday morning to make our bookings hehe

I managed to book everything we wanted though!

The plans so far are...

Day 1 - set sail

Day 2 - at sea - 3pm 'Couples Choice' spa villa at the Senses Spa

Day 3 - Grand Cayman - Island Tour (we visit the turtle farm and 'Hell'!)

Day 4 - Costa Maya - Chacchoben Mayan Ruins (adults only tour)

Day 5 - Cozumel - ... something very cultural.... 'Tacos and Tequila experience' - it sounds like fun, although I don't really like Tequila.. maybe this will be a good way to try it?!

Day 6 - at sea - Palo Brunch

Day 7 - Castaway Cay - dinner at Remy


I also did our online check-in yesterday, nice to know all the paperwork is out the way already!

I'm going to make a start on cruise/vacation clothes shopping soon - the weather has been so cold here (we had snow on Saturday!) that I really can't wait for our summer holiday

I'm so jealous, would love to do another Disney cruise this year but DH wants to go somewhere different blah, blah, blah....

The 'Tacos and Tequila' tour sounds very interesting lol

The snow here in Nottingham is ridiculous, I'm really fed up of it now!

All your plans sound great! I'd love to visit some Mayan ruins, tour Grand Cayman island and have a romantic time at the spa.

Hi! Thank you, I'm really excited about our tour excursions.. should be a good mix of culture and fun
I think the Disney cruises give us a good mix of the Disney experience while visiting new places... it's funny to think I wasn't sure if we'd like the cruise when I booked it for our honeymoon, and now we cannot wait to get onboard the Fantasy this summer!

Thanks Mel - soooo excited for the cruise, just under 10 weeks count down now too!




English sweets/candy

Hi everyone,

I'm putting together some little gifts bags to give to our servers and room steward on the cruise (along with the tips on the last night), and I've been buying things that say 'England' or 'London' on them (soaps, key rings, note pads etc) and would like to get some candy to put in them to.

I just wondered what candy/sweets you all think of as being very English?! I probably won't be able to bring chocolate (Cadburys mmmm!) as it will melt in the suitcases... so anything sugar-based?


Thank you!

Thanks Sara!

I'm so pleased to have finished my exams, still getting used to having free weekends with no accounting studies

Great ideas for the sweets... thank you! I'm hoping to get some sticks of rock from Brighton before we go on holiday too

Hope all is well with you & the family x
