My family and I are trying something different this half-term holiday. We're booked on a cruise to Amsterdam and Bruges. I have always wanted to visit Amsterdam and I've heard good things about Bruges as well. In terms of the cruise, I like the idea of a hotel that travels with you so you don't have to check in and check out of different places. I'm not entirely sure what there will be to do the rest of the time though. It will certainly be interesting and I will post a few photographs here when we get back. The cruise ships look like enormous floating tower blocks and effectively, I suppose that's what they are. Imagine this steaming up past the small houses of Venice!
