Rachel's Random Reads is going on holiday....

.... well at least the person behind the blog is jetting off in the morning. I'm flying into Rome to board the Norwegian Spirit for a 10 Night Greek Island & Med Cruise taking in Mykonos, Athens, Santorini, Rhodes, Crete, Valletta, Messina & Naples.

Currently my plans involve an excursion in Naples to take in the Amalfi Coast, including an hour of free times in Sorrento, Positano, Ravello and Amalfi, so hopefully will have some gorgeous pictures of that part of Italy.

I don't have any concrete plans for the other ports, although may stay onboard in Athens as I know how hot that city is at this time of year and would rather take advantage of a relatively quiet/empty ship. If anyone has been to any of the other places and has suggestions that don't involve history, religious buildings or ruins, then I'd love to hear them!

As a result of this trip have nothing scheduled for the blog while I'm away, sunning myself and generally pottering about the ports.

Then once I'm physically back in the UK, I will be moving house a few days later. As I mentioned in a post at the start of the month, it means that from tomorrow until probably end of August the amount of content on the blog is drastically reduced.

I do have some blog tours coming up, and I have got some reviews scheduled and dotted about, but need the break to give me a chance to get into new routines in the new place, and also to spare a bit more time to work on an exciting new project for me....all will be revealed hopefully in September!

I'm taking four paperbacks with me on the cruise but often find I run about the ship taking part in many activities, and then doing excursions or exploring ports that I don't have huge amounts of time to read. I hope to have some mini reviews for you as always once I'm back but it may not be possible just due to the above demands on my time.

Anyways, I'll miss all of you that read the blog while I'm away, and hope you will still want to see what my random thoughts on books are when I return!
