  Hi friends and welcome to Day 46 of this monumental, inconceivable and definly memorable blind sightseers tour….!

 Buenos días (Good Morning) 😀  

The ‘Blind Sightseers’ have arrived in Minorca! I love the way we’ve had 3 different languages in 3 days..Italian, French and now Spanish! 😲    

Today was a beach break on one of the south coast beaches. Let’s hope it’s a relaxing one but you never know, lol! 😨   

On the dock…🛳  

After another lovely breakfast 🥓 we headed out onto the dock to get the coach.

The beach…🏝

This beach was much easier to find (unlike the one in Corfu) and Sarah instantly walked across the sand and into the sea, yay! 😀

 Sarah then came back and found a place to put our towels, sit and put our bags…Then walked straight back into the sea! 😀

 Although it wasn’t really a hot sunny day and it was very windy and cloudy, i still was boiling and had to go for a cooling off. 😀

 We had a lovely time although sand blasted and totally covered in sand. it was a lovely place and it was good for me and Sarah to chill out for a while. 😀

 Back at the dock…🛳  

After a quick refresh on the ship we were sand free and ready to explore. The main street ran parallel to the ship so we couldn’t get lost. We found a few shops and in one of them Sarah found a lovely necklace, yay! We continued walking up the street until we reached the end. “Ooooohhh palm trees” i said. 😀

 The cafe and the storm…☕  

 The black clouds were moving in quickly so when we found a lovely cafe i said “As these tables are 3 deep and completely covered, if we sit in the middle the rain will never get us here”. We sat down and waited for the waitress.

And then…😨  

I’ve never witnessed rain like this ever. It gave no warning and came down (sideways) very hard, very heavy and very fast! Even though we were sat a long way from the end of the shelter we were getting soaked. The waitress ran out collected something off the tables and ran in. Sarah then grabbed me and we flew inside. 💪🏼  

The whole point of coming to a cafe in a Spanish country…Was we wanted to ask for ‘Patatas Fritas’. Sarah’s dad and brothers spent a lot of time in Spain and can speak fluent Spanish, so when the waitress came over to ask us what we wanted…Both Sarah and i said ‘Patatas Fritas’. The waitress looked at us and said “So you want chips!” ☹️ Although we didn’t get the Spanish language…The chips didn’t disappoint. 🤣  

We could still hear the thunderous rain storm outside and we had to get back to the ship soon…I think we were going to get soaked….We did! 😀  

On the ship…🛳  

Wow what a beautiful sunset…  

Beautiful sunset over Minorca

 Yay we finally have a photo of my lovely wife Sarah in the evening restaurant and she’s wearing her new necklace! 😲

 Now we know why this ship is called the Thomson Majesty..Such a beautiful piano set in a lovely part of the ship…And with no better way for keeping with the royal setting…My lovely wife Sarah (her name means Princess). ❤️

Lovely wife Sarah and the piano

 The Blind Sightseers have had another lovely day exploring yet another island…And although it’s the end of this ‘Treasures of the Mediterranean’ Cruise it’s not they end of our monumental tour during this lockdown. 

So let’s jump from this Thomson Majesty ship onto the Marella Discovery. Thomson were also bought out by Tui and now the ships are called Marella instead of Thomson.

I wonder where this ship is heading?? 🤔

We’ll meet tomorrow…Same time…Same place for another adventure! 😀

Wow…What A Rollercoaster Of A Trip!!

Sarah  i in Caribbean

⇧ Sarah & i at St Kitts ⇧ 

From stunning, breathtaking views, horse riding in paradise, dancing with dolphins, River paddle boat trip, various island bus tours, 4×4 volcano ride, cable cars, OH…. and Sarah’s medical emergancy in the middle of the Atlantic ocean, it’s been an unbelievable few weeks on our cruise holiday to the Caribbean, Azores & Spain. 

Sarah & i arrived back on Saturday, but after going to our local A&E on Monday, we both have been suffering with respiratory tract infections for a couple of weeks now.

So please be patient with me as i’m trying to import all of my photos and sort them out ready for posting here for a daily tour of our trip. But the computer is burning my eyes at the moment so is slowing me down a little, also the headaches, coughing and loss of energy is not helping, but that won’t stop me! lol. 

I’m not sure how long each post will take, and still not sure whever to post on Rebus Photography & iChristian or just on Rebus Photography…I don’t want to duplicate, but i know i have different friends on each blog, so also don’t want anyone to miss the posts. What do you think??

Please join Sarah & i on this incredible journey:
