Krakow, Poland. It’s a little bit awesome.

Late November 2015, my brother and I spent 3 days / 2 nights in Krakow, Poland. Krakow is a beautiful city and the second largest in Poland.

I had also never been on one of...

The second stop on my P&O Oriana cruise was Malaga. We docked early today, when I woke up we were already in port and ready for disembarkation. I could get used to waking up with a new destination to explore each day. It is a very easy process exiting the ship. You are directed to which part of the ship the gangways are located, you then have your cruise card scanned which keeps a register of who is onboard and ashore, and then...
