REFLECTIONS

OF NORTHERN EUROPE

EUROPE & THE ISLES DELIGHTS

Sample the famous port wine of Porto at the Ferreira Caves, one of the oldest port wine cellars in Portugal. Stopping in Honfleur, you come to the famous Normandy region, a stand-out destination for foodies with its local Camembert, Livarot and Neufchatel cheeses, as well as other delicacies. Discover the local folklore of Guernsey in St. Peter Port, heading to a mysterious fairy ring known as Pleinmont. Very few ships visit the Isles of Scilly, making St. Mary’s an ideal remote getaway. Whiskey lovers can rejoice, as Cork is the site of the Old Jameson Distillery, a beautifully restored and self-contained industrial complex taking you right to the heart of the cherished whiskey-making tradition. Staying overnight in London there’s time to venture beyond the historic city and explore sites like Hyde Park or Kensington Gardens.

World Navigator

May 07    Lisbon, Portugal    Depart: 6:00PM
Lisbon, Portugal

Portugal’s capital Lisbon comes alive with a rich history seen in every nook and cranny of the city. From the resting place of famous explorer Vasco de Gama at Jeronimos Monastery to the impressive turrets of São Jorge Castle dating all the way back to second century B.C.E., Lisbon offers a deep dive into the past to satiate the most curious travelers.
While Western Europe’s oldest city boasts an array of Baroque and Neoclassical architecture, that does not mean it has remained stuck in the past. On the contrary, the colorful culture and vibrant life that runs throughout the city’s restaurants, shops, and rooftop bars make it buzz with infectious energy. Taking a tuk tuk through its hard-to-reach passages allows you to experience Lisbon as the locals do.

May 08    Leixoes (Porto), Portugal   Arrive: 9:00AM Depart: 5:00PM
Leixoes (Porto), Portugal

Along the Douro River in the north of Portugal lies Porto, the country’s second-largest city. It may be renowned for its port wine – the Ferreira Caves being one such famed cellar and one of the oldest port wine cellars in Portugal – but the city contains so much more for the explorer spirit to discover. Starting in the port of Leixões, your journey takes you to the Dom Luis I bridge, a direct link to Ribeira, Porto’s oldest district. One of Porto’s most significant sites, the Livraria Lello, is filled with historical, architectural, and literary importance, containing a world of books that any bibliophile traveler will find exciting.

May 09    La Coruna, Spain   Arrive: 10:00AM Depart: 6:00PM
La Coruna, Spain

A province of Galicia, La Coruña (also known as A Coruña) holds a great deal of history that attracts the intellectual traveler. Home of the Spanish Armada and second-biggest port town in the country, it’s a city that invites explorer spirts to rediscover all its lost secrets and hidden gems.

About an hour away lies Santiago de Compostela, a beautiful cathedral to which many make a pilgrimage spanning 500 miles across the top of Spain. If you seek the beauty of nature within the splendor of historic architecture, La Coruña offers the Garden of San Carlos and the Gardens of Mendez Nuñez with verdant patches of bushes and palm trees sprinkled throughout paved paths amid cultural landmarks.

May 10    Santander, Spain   Arrive: 12:00PM Depart: 1:00PM
Santander, Spain

Within the historic region of Cantabria lies its capital, Santander, a port that’s believed to have been in existence since ancient times, dating as far back as the 11th century. For a glittering first impression, stroll along the famous Paseo de Pereda. Monarchs and fishermen alike both resided in this seaside town once upon a time. That history comes alive at the Magdalena Palace, built between 1908 and 1912 for the Spanish Royal Family. Heading into Puertochico, you come across Santander’s Old Town area, the original fishing pier. Although the Great Fire of 1941 destroyed most of it, there’s still much to see and experience.

May 10    Bilbao, Spain   Arrive: 6:00PM Depart: 7:30PM
Bilbao, Spain

On the northern edge of the Iberian Peninsula lies Bilbao, a city with historical ties to Basque country. Its best-known museum, The Guggenheim, stands as a shining example of some of the most innovative 20th-century design from renowned architect Frank Gehry. Strolling through the central neighborhood, Indautxu, you’ll come across the picturesque Doña Casilda Iturrizar Park. This English-style garden, with its enchanting pond, verdant trees and decorative fountains adds a touch of refinement and romance. From the Arenal Gardens, the gateway to Casco Viejo (the Old Quarter), to Miguel de Unamuno Square, where a statue of the famed writer stands sentinel, Bilbao’s everyday life holds an extraordinary magic.

May 11    Port Medoc (Bordeaux), France   Arrive: 9:30AM Depart: 6:00PM
Port Medoc (Bordeaux), France

Port Médoc is where red wine is king. Bordered to the east by the Gironde estuary and to the west by the vast pine forest that separates it from the Atlantic Ocean, the soil of Port Médoc is where France’s most coveted grapes are grown. As the gateway to the Bordeaux Wine Route, you can reach the town of Blanquefort to Saint-Vivien-de-Médoc, near the Pointe de Grave, and indulge in samplings of renowned wines along the way. There is also quite a bit of French history to be appreciated here as you witness three of the 12 Fortifications of Vauban.

May 12    Le Palais, Belle Isle, France   Arrive: 8:00AM Depart: 6:00PM
Le Palais, Belle Isle, France

About a 5.5-hour trip from Paris, Belle-Île has long been the secret summer getaway for Parisians and it’s easy to see why. Its jagged coastline rises out of the Bay of Biscay and has everything experienced travelers could want on an island, from beautiful beaches to a placid pastoral interior. The first landmark you may spot on your entrance to Le Palais, the capital of Belle-Île, is the imposing 17th-century Citadel Vauban. Sunworshippers and beachcombers can find a spot on the sand at Plage des Grands Sables, while surfers may prefer to catch waves at Plage du Donnant on the west side of the island.

May 14    Honfleur (Paris/Normandy), France   Arrive: 7:00AM Depart: 8:00PM
Honfleur (Paris/Normandy), France

Located along the southern bank of the Seine River, the charming port city of Honfleur is characterized by its picturesque houses with slate-covered facades, a captivating aesthetic that has been many the subject and inspiration for painters through history.
Known as the fashion capital of the world and the City of Lights, Paris has gained many monikers throughout its long history. Iconic tourist attractions like the Louvre, Versailles and the Eiffel Tower make it easy to see how the city has enjoyed such lasting power in the minds of wanderers and locals alike, but its smaller neighborhoods like Montmartre and Le Marais are where everyday life truly shine.
While France is world-renowned for its cuisine, Normandy stands out as a foodie destination. Local Camembert, Livarot and Neufchatel cheeses are delicious enough to entice travelers to stay, but a trip to Normandy is not complete without sampling the tripes à la mode de Caen, a French stew combining tripe with ox feet, vegetables, herbs and spices, cider and apple brandy.

May 15    London, England   Arrive: 6:00PM OVERNIGHT
London, England

London is a fascinating city with storied landmarks, iconic attractions, and countless hidden gems. Photographers often want to head toward central London near the Westminster Bridge. With Big Ben and Westminster Palace on one side and the London Eye on the other side of the river, it’s the best spot for the ultimate picture of the English capital. Among the lesser-known highlights of London is the British Library, where you may see a scribbled page of Beatles songwriting or a Leonardo da Vinci notebook. There are some stunning illuminated scripts and landmark-scientific items too. If you’re looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city, head to Hyde Park or Kensington Gardens.

May 19    St. Peter Port,( Guernsey) Channel Islands   Arrive: 8:00AM Depart: 6:00PM
St. Peter Port,( Guernsey) Channel Islands

Legend has it that the enchanted land of St. Peter Port was invaded by fairies once upon a time. For proof, head west to the edge of the island to find a mysterious Fairy Ring known as Pleinmont, walk around it three times and make a wish. Aside from local lore, Guernsey is charmed as the second largest of the Channel Islands ideally situated in the bay of St. Malo, a mere 30 miles from the coast of France and 80 miles from the coast of England. Speaking of England, while Guernsey is considered part of the British Isles, it is not a part of the United Kingdom, as it constitutionally owes allegiance to the English Crown, but has its own separate legislature.

May 20    St Mary’s (Isles of Scilly), England   Arrive: 8:00AM Depart: 6:00PM
St Mary’s (Isles of Scilly), England

While you might think you’ve landed in the Caribbean, the gorgeous oasis of St. Mary’s is very much in England. The Isles of Scilly enjoy a climate that is among the mildest, warmest, and sunniest in the United Kingdom. And very few ships visit, making it an ideal remote getaway. Among the smattering of islands strung off the tip of Cornwall is the thoroughly enchanting St. Mary’s with a population of almost 1,800 and covering an area of about three-square miles, the largest island of the five and the gateway to the rest of the archipelago. While St. Mary’s is laid back, you’ll find you can still enjoy an active day, whether you rent a boat or go paddle boarding. Hugh Town, St. Mary’s central hub, holds plenty of shops, restaurants, galleries and cafés to spend a leisurely afternoon. Nearby lie three beaches – Porthmellon, Town Beach and Porthcressa – for a relaxing beach day.

May 21    Cobh (Cork), Ireland   Arrive: 7:00AM Depart: 6:00PM
Cobh (Cork), Ireland

Cobh (pronounced Cove) is a favorite destination among history enthusiasts, especially those who have an interest in the world-famous Titanic. It’s also the gateway to wondrous County Cork, a land filled with rich heritage. A visit to Blarney Castle requires a quick kiss as here is where the famous Blarney Stone is set in the wall. Whiskey lovers can rejoice, as Cork is the site of the Old Jameson Distillery, a beautifully restored and self-contained industrial complex taking you right to the heart of the cherished whiskey making tradition. Near Cork lies the picturesque sailing town of Kinsale with vibrant streetscapes and delicious restaurants.

May 22    Holyhead, Wales   Arrive: 9:00AM Depart: 6:00PM
Holyhead, Wales

From the charming architecture of St. Cybi’s Church to the monolithic structures of Trefignath Burial Chamber, the city of Holyhead in Wales contains a spectrum of landmarks that invite you to explore. Take the South Stack Lighthouse tour for breathtaking views along the rocky coast. Sitting within the RSPB Reserve, the surrounding heathland filled with wildflowers, various species of birds and grazing sheep creates a bucolic scene to stir a sense of awe. Along the coast at Breakwater Country Park, discover scenic paths with audio trails, themed walks and even a gallery in the old brick shed. With plenty of restaurants and pubs near the port, it’s easy to dive into authentic Welsh cuisines, such as Conwy mussels or Welsh rarebit.

May 23    Douglas, Isle of Man   Arrive: 8:00AM Depart: 6:00PM
Douglas, Isle of Man

Between Ireland and Great Britain in the Irish Sea, there’s a small dot of land called the Isle of Man. Douglas is the capital and your gateway to the incredible treasures that this lesser-known Crown Dependency holds. Not only is Isle of Man culturally and historically different from its surrounding islands, but also linguistically diverse, among the many languages Manx, a Gaelic language similar to some types of Irish Gaelic, but unique to the island. Douglas’ lovely seafront can be traversed by horse-drawn trams, but if you prefer speed, this town also delivers with winding roads made for a thrilling motorcycle adventure. After all, this is the home of the International Isle of Man TT (Tourist Trophy) Race.

May 24    Dublin, Ireland   Arrive: 8:00AM
Dublin, Ireland

Ireland’s capital, Dublin, is bustling, cosmopolitan, ancient, and young at heart all at once. It is one of Europe’s liveliest cities, where medieval and 17th-century buildings stand comfortably amid all the trappings of a 21st-century community. Marvels like the incredible Book of Kells, one of the most beautifully illuminated manuscripts in the world, call out to the curious. A gentle and relaxing cruise along the River Liffey immerses you in the capital’s colorful history, from the first arrival of the Vikings to the rapid development of the city during the 18th and 19th centuries. When in Dublin, the Guinness Storehouse, located in the heart of St. James’ Gate Brewery, invites you to raise a glass at the Gravity Bar with a 360-degree view of the city skyline.
