Making Wishes and Living Dreams

A travel blog entry by rach_travelbug


... people joining in to tell them to shut up, the smoochy couple sitting behind myself and Ciara, the man with a dog a couple of seats back, the lack of sleep, eating strawberries dipped in chocolate yoghurt at what must have been 5am, wearing 5 layers of clothes, chatting to a French lady while waiting on the toilet and cocooning myself in a scarf covering the front of my person and one at the back.

... was a soccer ball. The guy who gave us a ride to our hostel the day before, a construction worker who was working on the pier, called up the ferry crew and the ferry turned around!!! Yay!
