    Thank you Sally, we are happy to be included in one of your favourite posts for the month. We are often asked about what happens when you board a cruise ship and was a fun post to write. I loved all the other posts too, especially Dean’s Road Trip food (we were actually travelling similar places, eating similar foods at the same time) and also Vicki’s top 15 bloggers who didn’t quit their job to travel, as we were one of the bloggers featured. I love reading your picks each month.

    Hi Sally – A great round up of your favourite posts from April. I must admit, I’ve been very slack with my blogging (and reading) for the past 4-5 weeks, so I can’t tell you my favourite post from the past month. I’ll try to do better next month! 😉
