Today is my 5th wedding anniversary I thought I would share my story. I know I do not normally write about my life, just my travel life, but it is travel related as I met my husband while travelling.
I met my husband ten years ago, while we were both working onboard a cruise ship. I do not know the date we officially got together, but I can tell you we were in Barcelona and it was in 2007!
When you work on ships, days and dates mean nothing as your week becomes port days, sea days and turn around days (disembarkation and embarkation) and there are no weekends to look forward to, so every day is a Monday!
Getting ready for the big day
We met ashore in Sorrento, Italy at a friend’s birthday party which was a speed boat party. Then we met again onboard and started seeing each other. It was interesting in the beginning as were not always on the same ship, but in the end, we managed it.

Fast forward a few years and we got engaged in Lima, Peru and then got married in 2012 in my home town in England. It was a lovely sunny day, we were so lucky as it rained for three weeks solid before the wedding day! It was perfect day surrounded by all our friends and family from around the world.
We are celebrating 5th wedding anniversary and ten years together. We have travelled the world together and sailed many seas! It has been fantastic to see as many places as we have together.
Now I just travel with my husband onboard hence my tag line ‘The Travelling Wife – Cruising Around the World’. The most important thing is to be together, travelling is just a bonus (but I love it!).
