Sounds fabulous. Is this your first time in ICN? Especially looking forward to the Asian instalments.

Will be following with interest. When I am in Southern England in August I hope to have a steam hauled train trip from Swanage or Nordern to Corfe Castle. The castle in Dorset is reputed to be the inspiration for Kirin Island in the famous 5 books.

I learnt the other day that the founder and owner of Viking Cruises, Torstein Hagen, is a lifelong friend of Manfredi Lefebvre d’Ovidio who founded Silverseas, and who subsequently named the speciality restaurant onboard all Viking ships, Manfredi.

Looks like the makings of another epic report. Looking forward to your photos of the wisteria-have a bit of a fascination with them-Dads family house was a Cobb & Co stop & this wisteria dates from those times
