Willkommen an Bord!

This is the view from my sofa, where I'm resting my feet after toiling up and down Frankfurt Cathedral's 328 spiral steps, as well as prowling all around the Old Town/CBD - very neat, pretty, historic, relaxed and well-used by the Frankfurters. The people, naturlich, not the sausages.

The boat, Avalon's new vessel, Panorama, is just lovely. It's literally brand new, so I'm the first person to stay in my room. It's actually a suite (they're all suites on the top two levels) with marble bathroom, Occitane toiletries, desk, big television, FREE WIFI and sliding doors that open almost all the way across, so it's like turning the whole room into a balcony: clever idea. Can't wait to get into the inviting-looking bed tonight with its fine sheets - but there are still miles to go, figuratively speaking, before I sleep. The city to explore some more, then cocktails, fancy dinner, wine...

Hard old life, eh?
