It's been a curious week.
On Thursday (and Friday) I was in Dublin. Now I'm on Cunard's Queen Victoria.
It’s Day Two of a three-night mini-cruise that began yesterday in Southampton.
Technically we're “at sea” all day today. In practise we’re at anchor in the North Sea waiting to enter Zeebrugge harbour I don't know when. (I've been far too busy eating and drinking to check the schedule.)
Tomorrow we'll face a difficult decision: get a taxi/train to Bruges and spend the day shoulder to shoulder with thousands of other sweaty tourists, or stay on board the world’s most
luxurious expensive cross-Channel ferry.
Barring unforeseen developments normal service will resume here on Tuesday.
