Noordam 2013 - Day 19: The journey home

We got up at 5 am. It was not as crowded at the breakfast buffet as the other days. No wonder, who gets up this early when on vacation. Well, we do because our flight leaves in a couple of hours…

So this is going to be our last post for a while. If you want to read our whole blog, please do so at We blogged about the preparation, the first day in Barcelona and the rest of our cruise on the Holland America Noordam.

The same driver that brought us to the hotel was there to pick us up. We were a bit early, the luggage drop-off was not open yet. We had to wait quite some time.

Waiting at the airport

We were on the plane with a lot of nuns from Cameroon. They were touring Europe. Finally we also saw a familiar face, a colleague of Joost was on the same plane.

When we arrived in Brussels we were very disappointed in the weather. Only 17 C (62 F) while we left Rome at almost 30 C (86 F). And it was raining, something we had not seen since Monte Carlo.

Brussels has a great airport. When we arrived at the luggage belt, our suitcases just arrived. We walked to the car that was parked just outside the terminal. Before we knew it, we were on our way home.

We hope you enjoyed reading about our cruise and the days before. More to come, next cruise !
