Cruising, Sunshine On A Cloudy Day


Last Fall we took our first and hopefully not last cruise from New York. For September in “The Big Apple” it was an usually cloudy, windy and cold afternoon as we boarded the Carnival Sunshine.


Adios New York“Adios New York” is just not the same as “Adios Miami”. However, saying good-bye to the New York City Skyline and then later sailing under “The Verrazano-Narrows Bridge” was a delightful thrill.



Although we only had one port of call, a half day or so exploring New Brunswick, Canada by car turned out to be a scenic wonderland and lots of fun. We drove towards Fundy National Park but not before making a few detours and a stop to climb the St Martin's Lighthouse during high tide.

A few hours driving and hiking in Fundy National Park and by the time we past back through St Martin's it’s low tide.The world's highest tides occurs here and on this particular afternoon our timing was just right to experience it.

Uganda, Ride On Entebbe


After over an eight hour flight from Amsterdam we land in Kigali, Rwanda. During this scheduled hour or so stop many passengers disembark and their seats are cleaned before we take on new passengers headed back to Amsterdam and beyond.

A short less than forty five minute flight and I arrive at my final destination in “The Pearl Of Africa”, Entebbe.


EBB AirportOther than parting with US$50 (which I did not need to pay) for a Visa On Arrival, the airport arrival process was straightforward.




A comfortable night sleep at Alison & Dave's Guesthouse followed by a wonderful homemade breakfast and I am off to explore Entebbe on a set of two wheels. TIA.
