Well, here's something I never thought I'd say, "today, we sat on the This Morning sofa and had a chat with Amanda Holden and Ben Sheppard." It all started last week.

It's been a day of firsts for Isabelle. For a start, we're currently somewhere between North Shields and Amsterdam on a big boat in a very small room. They've even managed to provide you with the ability to sit on the toilet whilst showering. Not quite what I'm after when looking for somewhere to stay, but hey, we all have our preferences.

Today we almost had a similar experience. When it comes to travelling, I don't really like too much planning.
