Blind Luck

A travel blog entry by drudell


... we're just kind of following the road figuring there must be some reason the road keeps going. Just saying, some roads keep going because 600 years ago this was the route the asses took to get to the fields, and now 600 years later it's sometimes the EXACT same reason!
Not today though. We finally come to a parking area near the end of the road and see a path going 'up'. So off we go, and it's pretty steep, but still walking, not climbing, and after a few ...

... practice so hope there will be water tomorrow. As we arrived in La Coruna 2 says ahead of when we should have been in the Azores we will now have 6 days at sea before we get to Antigua, still when the pools open that will give me more time for swimming practice before we get there. Found out about a photo group on board, a light hearted competition is underway so that's something else to do on sea days and luckily I had already planned to try and take some photos around ...
