Since Flames has his own holiday thread, I thought I'd have mine. :P This summer is huge. It's a special birthday for my Dad and myself, so guess what we're getting? A Mediterranean cruise with the family!!!!! :opost-21394-1208438102.gif

On Monday, July 14th, my husband and I are flying out of Orlando to England, and my parents are flying out of Toronto. We will meet in Manchester within 20 minutes of each other, where my sister and BIL will pick us up and take us back to their house in West Yorkshire for some visits with family and some sightseeing. On July 19th the six of us will fly to Venice, where we will meet my son and daughter post-21394-1208438102.gif, and then board a ship for a 12 day Mediterranean romance cruise. Following the cruise, myself, my husband, and my kids will fly to London for a couple of days, and my parents and sister and BIL will head back to West Yorkshire. Then we'll all meet up again for a couple of days before flying home on August 4th.

I am beyond excited. In fact, I am so excited I am nauseated. :lol:

Thanks guys! :) I am now in a mad rush to lose a ton of weight. :help:

Oh! And we have arranged with the ship's captain to do a surprise renewal of wedding vows for my parents. It was their 50th wedding anniversary last year, but my Mom was a mess with all of her surgeries and her sister dying, and then her minister retired and she didn't want anyone else to do it so we shelved it. I am VERY excited we are going to get to do it now. :)

Sounds like an exciting trip!!


Canadians Visiting the USA while undergoing the visa process, my free advice:

1) Always tell the TRUTH. never lie to the POE officer

2) Be confident in ur replies

3) keep ur response short and to the point, don't tell ur life story!!

4) look the POE officer in the eye when speaking to them. They are looking for people lieing and have been trained to find them!

5) Pack light! No job resumes with you

6) Bring ties to Canada (letter from employer when ur expected back at work, lease, etc etc)

7) Always be polite, being rude isn't going to get ya anywhere, and could make things worse!!

8) Have a plan in case u do get denied (be polite) It wont harm ur visa application if ur denied,that is if ur polite and didn't lie! Refer to #1

First: I hate you :angry: ... you get to go on a European vacanza while I won't :angry:

:lol: Yeah, sorry about that. :blush: I almost posted in the vent thread when we were trying to coordinate the thing. (Do you know how incredibly difficult it is to schedule and arrange flights and timing for 8 different people living in 3 different countries flying into and out of 6 different places? :blink: Lemme tell ya..... it's difficult.) Anyway, I didn't bother whining because I knew there'd be minimal sympathy. :lol:

Thanks Jun, Flames, and Len! I will definitely take pictures! :dance:

I feel the same way just reading it. :lol: That really does sound like a once-in-a-lifetime undertaking. :wow: Even Donald Trump is saying, "it's huge." :lol: Throw in a visit to the set of Corrie and a wedding at Old Trafford and you've done it all. :thumbs: Really like the surprise wedding vows on the ship, it truly is the piece de resistance. As for a lack of sympathy for your plight from the hoi polloi, don't worry about it, it's just a Minorca problem. :lol:

Ooooooooh. Done the set of Corrie TWICE! :lol: My favourite picture is of my uncle (who just passed) lying on the sidewalk in front of the Rovers Return pretending to be drunk, and me trying to pick him up to take him home. It is priceless. I'll have to dig it out of the archives. :lol:

I'm so sorry about the passing of your uncle, I was hoping that you'd tell us that he'd improved enough to go on the cruise. You have my deepest sympathies and condolences. (L) If it's not too upsetting, I'd love to see the picture. :thumbs:

Full tank of petrol for the Vauxhall Victor... £30.50

Family pass to Granada Studios Tour... £8.50

Having a photo of your late uncle in front of the Rovers Return.. PRICELESS.

Sounds like your trip is going to be amazing, and I know you will all have a ball. I also know how hard it is to schedule it as we are trying to get a family (3 big birthday's this year) trip sorted out for Christmas with 12 people out of 4 places and it is ugly, hopefully we will get it done before Christmas though lol. Do take lots of pictures while you are away and show us all.
