Around the world in 80 Days - Please post your steps/miles/kms for Saturday 6 February (Part 2)

Dear Travellers,

The steamer is leaving shortly. We are heading to San Francisco, which will take us 22 days. Don't worry plenty of fun and relaxation on our journey to USA.

Scheduler for this afternoon including Zumba on the upper deck, Pilates on the lower deck, massages and pedicure behind the waterfall at the bottom of the volcano and wine tasting by sommeliers who looks very much like Daniel and Idris :D :D

This evening there are foxtrot lessons on the dancefloor. Then we have two special guest appearances - Ricky and Jon :D :D :D Finally your favourite cocktails served all night.

Happy Travels everyone

:) :) :)

Heard your plea for us to post daily as you have difficulty tracking lost travellers down. Can well understand! A big thanks to you for running this trip for us - we really appreciate it and it motivates us all sometimes to go that extra mile! I haven't finished today but will definitely make at least 15.3 k before I get home late tonight. if I go over - or under - I'll adjust tomorrow's figure (promise, no cheating). Will be a tiring day tomorrow as we're going hiking in the Alps. Assuming the weather doesn't spoil our plans.

Hope the lost travellers are slowly slinking back.

Hi all

Wow what a floating island you have chosen for us to travel on, to San Francisco. Not very good at the foxtrot but will enjoy those cocktails. 18.5 km for me today including 10k on my exercise bike (just dusted off after being unused in the garage for a couple of years). Have a great weekend everyone🚴🏽

Sorry to be late checking in. Last night with Daniel.......well, what can I say!!

Only managed 8.1 kms today, Saturday, 12132 steps. Hoped to do more to save some calories for tonight's curry but it didn't quite go according to plan.

On the plus side I chose to drive so no wine, shared a starter, main meal with a spoonful of rice and one bit of naan. No desert so damage limitation I hope.

Looking forward to enjoying all our cruise to San Francisco has to offer. Happy days!!

5.1 miles for me yesterday. It sounds a lot but my Fitbit measures every step I take in 24 hours. Actually the weather was so foul yesterday I only managed a hour's walk in driving wind and rain with my dogs. We were all soaked but they loved it. love my dogs. πŸ’¦πŸ’¦πŸ©πŸ©

Oh I'm ashamed to say that we had an awful day yesterday due to the weather. Lots of wind and rain all day down here and really miserable :-( Consequently we did nothing except sit in front of the fire and watch a St Trinians film !! I guess we need to put something down so Mr L and I probably managed a km each going round Sainsburys in the morning !!

However, I've just thrown Mr L out the door for a run, and I'm going once he gets back, so we should be back on track for today's kms ! (I need to, ate too much food yesterday !!)

Morning! Don't think I gave you Friday. So here are both!

Ok so firstly apologies again, I am planning to return to work tomorrow. I am not quite right yet nor 100% fit so am terrified about having enough energy to last the day. I have therefore been reaΔΊly resting and getting plenty of sleep. I also watched rugby all afternoon yesterday. πŸ˜•

So all these excuses because my kms lower than most of poorly days. I know when I am back at work and well again I will be back to hitting target.

Friday 1. 2km

Sat 0. 9km
