In mid July, I'm heading out on a Baltic cruise. SO excited! We go in and out of Copenhagen and have ports of call in Warnemunde (Berlin), Helsinki, Stockholm, Tallinn, Kiel (Hamburg) and St Petersburg.

It will be nice to go back to Copenhagen (used to go there every month for business and still have a bunch of friends there). And I'm looking forward Tallinn as I am half Estonian and Stockholm as I'm one-quarter Swedish.

If anyone has any suggestions for Tallinn or Kiel, I would greatly appreciate it. Decided not to go into Hamburg from Kiel, so I'm looking for any particular suggestions near the port...

We recently spend nearly a month there. Where are you headed? There's a huge variety of things to experience.

Be sure to take Xifaxen (if your MD approves), it saved us 3x, you only have to take it 3 days, it works in 24 hours, it is not broad spectrum, and it's cheap. I'll never travel without it again.

Be aware the Budapest can be quite hot in August. I thought we'd melt. Be sure to take a river cruise, preferably at night when you can see the bridges and the town lit up. Really wonderful. That's lots of other things to do and see on both sides of the river and most guidebooks can clue you in on that. We rode the subway and it was very nice.

Turkey, Romania and Moldova in for seven weeks this summer. Romania has been a dream since 2005, Moldova (specifically Transnistria) became an obsession last year, and Turkey is a spur-of-the-moment thing to visit a friend who eloped!

Stats: Female, 5'4", 28 years old.

Goal: From 152 (07/24/2011) to 125 by December, 2011. DONE! December 4th weighed in at 124. In 2012 I've been maintaining around 122, which is a thirty pound loss. My BMI has gone from 26.1 to 20.9 since following the Spark plan!

Groot Constantia - Winery & Museum - the oldest vineyard in South Africa (+/- 350 years) about 20minutes outside Cape Town on the way from Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, and en route to Cape of Good Hope Nature reserve. Stop off at the Boulders to see the Penguins. Go up to the Point to see the convergence of the Two Oceans - Atlantic & Indian - you will be told it's the tip of Africa - folklore - it is really Cape Agulhas but never mind that.
Come back north along the Atlantic coast and over Chapmans Peak toll road to Hout Bay. Call in at Mariners Wharf for a rest and then head back to Cape Town via Camps Bay and the V&A Waterfront.

Lovely restaurant - steaks, fish, good veg, my favourite - walking distance from home :)) - Barristers in Newlands.
Five Star hotels - Mount Nelson in the City.
Vineyard Hotel in Newlands - walking distance to Barristers.

Then a daytrip out to Stellenbosch - history galore. Wonderful wineries - Blaauwklippen also has museum of old carriages, and they grow mushrooms there. Plenty of others.
Also Paarl (Afrikaans for The Pearl) - plenty of wineries - especially Nederburg
Then there is KWV - brandy, wine
Also a tour of a brandy still - senior moment - have forgotten the name - on the way back from Stellenbosch, past Spier winery - tourist trap but they are into conservation of leopards etc and wild birds.

All these places are within 50miles of Cape Town.

Go north up the West Coast to the Cedarberg Mountains thru wheatlands and other wineries in the Malmesbury /Darling region. Pass thru Piketberg - up on top of the mountain to the west there's loads of citrus farms.

The Western Cape is magnificent - have a look at my blogs - lots of pix of places I have mentioned!!

Let me know when yu are coming - maybe we can have coffee somewhere

Sounds like a great excuse to go to Paris! Enjoy your weekend.

Any specific restaurants or shopping ideas for Cape Town? Or a favorite vineyard to go tasting? I think we are scheduled for 4-5 days there. There's too much to see around the country to be able to do it all...
