As we set off for our cruise, we weren't looking forward to the twelve hour flight but it wasn't as bad as expected being slightly shorter than we had been told. However, after watching four films, I was beginning to feel tired but as we flew into the early sunshine and new time zone, the cabin was flooded with light and so I had no time to get some sleep; so time then for another film!
Arriving in Langkawi, boarding the ship was the quickest we had ever experienced, as arrivals were spread over two days. After a quick meal, our cases had arrived, so we got changed and went for a walk.
The port was very pleasant and we walked as far as the nearby beach, passing a hotel with open Wi-Fi, an added bonus! However, after not sleeping for 24 hours, the heat soon got to us, so we went back for a short sleep before the evening meal and the first of the nightly shows that are popular on cruise ships. We did a little exploring, as this was the first time on the Discovery. Then time for an early night, after two long tiring days.
Lots of small Islands. This reminded me of a skull.
We set sail into the Sunset. Our adventure begins.
