“Home from the cruise finding it hard to get back to the real life; cooking, washing, ironing etc. But I suppose all good things come to an end. George thanks so much for your wonderful tour and for being you. We all had a great time. I’ve been singing your praises with each phone call I get from friends asking about our trip. Thanks again.”
