Angel of the sky

16 of 16 in the Jemverse ‘Venetian Vistas’ series

Holidays are exciting
in lots of different days
For when you’ve finished cruising
then you take to the airwaves

And our Tui flight this morning
is the ‘Angel of the Sky’
From Dubrovnik in Croatia
to London Gatwick we will fly

It’s been a lovely holiday
but no regrets we’re homeward bound
as we have all the memories
of new places we have found

Leaving Blighty

Part 1 of 20 in ‘The Aegean Shores’ series

It’s getting quite exciting
watching big planes come and go
Sitting in Departures
and going with the flow
It’s quite warm here but warmer still
in Corfu where we’ll be
Waiting for our flight to board
My wife here (Sal) and me

Leaving Blighty for a week
for a cruise the Grecian way
Island hopping in the sun
on our summer holiday

[Today marks the start of a 20-part series charting a seven-day cruise with Tui travelling from London to Corfu, then Kalamata (Greece), Santorini, Rhodes, Crete, Piraeus (Greece), Kefalonia, Corfu and London]

Like snow

Up here at thirty thousand feet
the clouds look just like snow
and I can see for miles and miles
when looking down below

We’re high above mid-England’s green
and the sky is tinged with blue
The sun is out there somewhere
but it’s not within my view

And I’m content to sit and watch
as we continue on our flight
For this really is a special treat
and the view’s a lovely sight

Excited

I’m on my way to Gatwick
to board a big jet plane
which’ll take me up to Glasgow
on my travels once again

It’s quite a way, four hundred miles
and sixty-six point two
so I’m pleased that I am flying
from home to my venue

And I’m really quite excited
as flying is a treat
First come first served at check-in
Hope I get a window seat

I’ve never been to Glasgow
so I’ll be writing there for sure
the experience to share with you
when I’m at home once more

Sometimes I can fly

Sometimes I can fly
High above like a bird I soar
and look down to the sea
and the rolling waves
and the white horses galloping there
And I sing

Sometimes I can fly
High above like a bird I soar
and look down to the earth
and the rolling hills
and the green of undulating downland
And I smile

Sometimes I can fly
High above like a bird on the wing
and look down from a mind’s eye
and a different world
and a peace born of contentment
And I am

Malaga I

Boarding our Dreamliner
Thompson did us proud
For we had extra legroom
and the engines weren’t too loud
The outbound flight as always
thrilled us to the core
England disappearing
through the window there we saw
And just two hours later
as we woke up from a snooze
The wheels touched down in Malaga
for our Iberian Treasures cruise

Departures

We’re sitting in Departures
waiting for our flight
We’re feeling quite excited
just like we were last night

We’ve sprayed expensive fragrance
from the duty-free display
and have had a lovely breakfast
to tide us on our way

We’ve even brought some presents
in case the gift shops when abroad
don’t have what we’re looking for
or are too pricey when on board

We have about an hour to fill
before we get on board our plane
then just over two hours flying time
before we land in sunny Spain
