Vigo, Spain

Posted on

Our first port of call on the cruise was Vigo on the 6th May. This was a disappointing and rather dreary destination partly due to the weather but mainly because there was very little to do or see there. It’s helpful if you need to go shopping for things that you have forgotten to bring with you on the ship but other than that, I didn’t see the point in stopping there.

We were greeted by noisy protesters wanting Europe to help their banks or something to that effect. We had a look around some shops and I managed to capture a few interesting pictures. I’m sure there must be nicer parts of Vigo to explore further out but I have to admit that I wasn’t impressed and would have no intention in going back there. apologies to Vigo residents. If you have your own views, please include them in the comments below. Find out more about Vigo HERE on Wikipedia.

7 things for 2013

Posted on

I got the idea for this on ‘Day Zero Project’s’ blog http://dayzeroproject.tumblr.com/post/14316970136/this-year-at-day-zero-were-taking-an-alternative it’s an alternative to new years resolutions. So as 2013 is fast approaching I thought I’d better get myself in gear and start thinking about what I want out of my year.

  1. Learn how to… stay calm when under pressure at work.
  2. Start… working out to tone myself up.
  3. Stop… thinking about the past too much.
  4. Take a vacation to… somewhere I haven’t been in the UK.
  5. Find… a flat and start being a grown up.
  6. Try… and regain the independence I lost when I moved back in with my parents.
  7. Be more… open and personal in my blog posts
