Kralendijk - Bonaire

8 Night Southern Caribbean Cruise from Port Canaveral, Florida, U.S.A. 04 April 2015 - 12 April 2015:

Day 5: It was an overnight sailing from Aruba. The cruise liner berthed at the Kralendijk harbour 08th April 2015 around 10.30 A.M. and we had time till 4 P.M. on land.

Bonaire is an island Municipality of the Netherlands and an acclaimed diving and snorkeling destination whose reef-lined coast is protected within the Bonaire National Marine Park.

As with most cruise tours, it is nothing but beaches and sea, especially on this tour. While other members of the family are always interested in the sea adventures, me and my wife always preferred to stay safe on the sands :).

After disembarking we hired a van and straightaway drove to the Wind and Surf Beach. The van will vanish for the driver to do other trips to fill his pocket and return by 1 P.M to pick us and drop at the harbour.

Back onto the streets of Kralendijk after lunch at the cruise liner ( All included in the fare. So why miss it? :) )

A refreshing local beer. Usually I am never in the picture (since I am the shooter) but this time I made sure I am seen for posterity.

The Grill house at the harbour we never ventured in - we have everything on the cruise liner. You name it and you have it. Most of the time we don't know the name - only me and my wife - so we just have it.:)

Grand Turk Island and John Glenn - who?

8 Night Southern Caribbean Cruise from Port Canaveral, Florida, U.S.A. 04 April 2015 - 12 April 2015:

Day 7: After cruising for full day since it sailed out of Bonaire, the cruise liner arrived at Grand Turk around 8 A.M. on 10th April 2015. We can have our feet on the land till 4 P.M.

Grand Turk is a British Overseas Territory and the capital of the Turks & Caicos Islands located 575 miles southeast of Miami, Florida and 30 miles south of the Bahamas. GrandTurk is one of 40 islands that form the Turks and Caicos archipelago. It has the state of the art luxury cruise ship center.

It is here that Christopher Columbus first made landfall on his initial voyage to the New World in 1492. Almost 500 years later, US astronaut John Glenn “discovered” Grand Turk himself, after he became the first American man to orbit the earth. We have that depicted at the exhibits at the cruise center.

After Columbus and John Glenn, we have set foot on Grand Turk :). (But they hadn't seen this state of the art Cruise Center that became operational in 2006.)

[ EDIT: Talking of Colombus, this is the statue of Colombus at Genoa, Italy, the birth place of Christopher Columbus, which we visited on 4th April 2012

The Freedom seven capsule in which John Glenn splashed into the sea near Grand Turk. Wait! this is only the replica. The real Friensdship 7, I believe, is on display in the Smithsonian Nationa lAir and Space Museum in Washington DC. Most visitors here believe that this is the real thing :).

^"on the road" ? literally???

My itinerary - vacation trip-31-05-2017-18-44-09.jpg

hmmmm............... I would have done that ten years back - not now.( My wife and daughter do not allow me to drive my car - ever since I side-scraped my daughter's Honda City on a highway while passing another car, a year or two back. My car is just gathering dust in the garage. I still use my two-wheeler in the city - minimal. Had only one fall in the last one year .

Where was I last year on 04th June? Morning we took a train from Seville to Malaga (Spain). Night we had dinner in an ordinary restaurant - a quiet affair.

( Incidentally, z3r010 was also in Spain at that time , but not in mainland Spain but far away Canary Islands - an archipelago of Spain off Western Coast of Morocco, Africa.)
