Cadiz, Spain

This was our final destination on our Mediterranean cruise. We really enjoyed this small town in Spain, again like most of the places we visited the architecture was beautiful, I never particularly cared much for the details in buildings before we visited some of these places but there is so much to appreciate and see in this world. I adored the green brick building in the photo below, would have loved to know who lived behind those doors but that may have been a little bit stalker-ish!

We had a walk around the city and stopped off at this quirky cafe called 'top coffee shop' which was recommended on trip advisor. It was around the corner from the main square in a small hidden away street so it felt nice to be tucked away from the crowd, sit on a patchwork sofa and relax a little. It was the first time I tried bubble tea. I had a milk based jasmine tea with mango flavoured pearls. Out of this world delicious! I need to find somewhere local that does bubble tea. I highly recommend trying it even if it does look totally weird. It's pudding in a cup!

After of course a local draught beer we headed back to the ship for the great British sail away party. Each time we left a port they would throw a sail away party but this was the big one because it was the last one. We were all given British flags to wave, pimms to drink, good songs to sing-a-long too and as the ship moved we all belted out 'land of hope & glory'. TOTALLY cheesy right!? But good fun all in all.

For the last few days of our cruise we were joined by stars from 'Strictly Come Dancing' including judge Craig Revel-Horwood. I would have been more excited if I watched the show but it was good fun later on in the cruise when they recreated the show in the theatre with some of the dancers. Anyway, here are the last few photos:

We really loved this time away, it just confirmed to us how much we love travelling and how much more of the world we want to see. We'll never stop seeing more of the world, even when our family grows. It's too much on our hearts to let anything stop us. I can't wait to see where our next adventure will take us!
