It has been a some months since my last post and nothing really specatular happend. Then suddenly my dad called and offers to go on a Cruise vacation in the first weeks of December.

The ship was new and should be christianed in Hamburg October 2019. It sounded somewhat unreal and normally I wouldn't choose a vacation like this, but life is full of uncertaincies these days and I though why not take this opporitunity to see some european cities I actually never seen before in my life.

To The Airport

It started on 2 december 2019 on Eindhoven Airport with Flight HV6787 to Barcelona.
