Travel Blogs from Worthing
The urge to travel again becomes a reality as I take a short trip to Amsterdam to check-out the Sailing Barqantine "Europa" while it is being refitted. All being well "Europa" will be our home for almost three months when we sail it from Argentina to Antarctica in February 2015.
I will post my first travelblog when I arrive in Amsterdam.

Eventually went back to Guest House, and collapsed on bed for a sleep - worn out - aaaah!
Thankfully, Laura-Jayne didnt mind spending another evening entertaining me, and we had a lovely pub meal, and an early night for me! Everything crossed for the morning.
