Anna Maria’s Adventures Abroad

Discover a new skill. Taste a new flavour. Laugh till it hurts. Or just relax and refresh. However you choose…find a new you today. This was our mantra for the 84-day cruise around South America that started 11 January 2017.  We visited around 14 countries, explored 28 cities and went on a 4-day excursion and land tour to Cusco and Machu Picchu. I now have certificates for the “Crossing the Dateline” (twice); “Crossing the Equator”; “Rounding Cape Horn” (twice, the temperature was minus 10 degrees) and one for transiting the Panama Canal. We celebrated crossing the Equator, Australia Day, St Patrick’s Day, Carnival and Chinese New Year.  I took close to 10,000 photos on my iPhone, which I am sure I’ll bore you with when I next visit your facility!
