Blind Luck

A travel blog entry by drudell


... 145,000 people, moving further west and up again to the Sete Cidades Massif. Roads are winding but good and we soon come across the start of the lagoons that dot the area. To Donna's chagrin I pass RIGHT BY(!) the first off-road to a parking area. We are not at Sete Cidades yet, and I am on a QUEST! When we get to the next road to the Lagoa Canaria I can resist her urging no longer and turn in. Not much to see but we keep on. Past the sign for Lagoa Canaria, past ...

Atlantic Crossing

A travel blog entry by sheilacruise


Well what a night that was, so glad the stabilisers were working!!! We were pummelled from all sides. Clocks changed back by 1 hr so more time in bed. Haven't slept right through yet so the extra hour was great. The sea is much more calm today (thank God) guessed it would be I stocked up on more travel pills yesterday just incase. The weather has improved as well blue skies overhead which is great. No water in the swimming pools yet though and as some of my friends know I ...
