Výlet loďou po Stredomorí
Už ani neviem, ako presne mi napadlo pozrieť si na toto leto plavby luxusnou loďou (zrejme to bola nejaká reklama na internete, ktorá na mňa vyskočila) a nebolo treba veľa surfovania, aby som sa nad touto, zatiaľ mojou osobne neprebádanou formou dopravy nadchol. Kamarátom som poslal hneď niekoľko odkazov na plavby spoločnosťou MSC Cruises, ktoré vyzerali byť najlacnejšie a skúšal ich lanáriť, aby sme tento rok išli do toho.
