  • Day 12 - Ponta Delgada, The Azores.After five days at sea it is strange to awaken and look out of the cabin window to see land.

  • Rocking and rolling all night long!!We left Ponta Delgada last night and headed to the open sea. And I think this was one of our top three nights of sleeplessness due to pitching and roiling seas. Even the crew was not happy today - Posted by eurovicki in Euro Vicki | Apr 27, 2017
  • Getting old!So last night after dancing a couple hours I was so ramped up I couldn't sleep! I answered some emails around 3 am and probably fell asleep at 4 a.m.-ish. So we slept until 11:40! Just enough time to Posted by eurovicki in Euro Vicki | Apr 28, 2017

  • Leixoes (Porto) PortugalThis time, instead of the hop on hop off bus, we got a taxi with a driver who spoke English. We found him near the sculpture of the fishing net that brought to mind the Sardinia fishermen. And the Posted by eurovicki in Euro Vicki | Dec 5, 2015
  • LisbonThis time we decided to take a taxi/guide around the city. Alfama is the top of the city and we had a lovely overview. Our guide told us that in the old city the exteriors were tile before ww2, marble Posted by eurovicki in Euro Vicki | Dec 6, 2015

  • Porto, PortugalSo. Since we slacked off our tourism the last two days we thought we would get back on the horse - at least, the hop on hop off bus. What a disappointment!! We headed to the top and plugged in. Posted by eurovicki in Euro Vicki | Nov 28, 2015
