Seabourn Odyssey I

This time we decided to experience pristine Rainforest(Terra Rica my granddaddy's place, The Fordian Belterra, the beautiful Alter-do-chao and my dear friend Saba.
SEABOURN ODYSSEY!! Thank you so much mates!!

Hi Gil

We would like to say a big thank you for 2 of the most wonderful days we have ever spent ashore from a cruise ship. We lovedddddd! every minute of it. You were so knowledgeable, entertaining and funny and we are still smiling today. A few photos you may like to see are attached. People on the ship have asked how we managed to be so few on our boat and they were so many - you remember we passed 2 or 3 Seabourn tourists boats. We have told so many people on board about our super guide and the days you planned for us.

We have already looked on Amazon to buy the books you were involved with and hopefully these will arrive in England when we arrive home.

Thank you again - we just loveddddd it.

Kind regards
