Having left Vigo the Captain informed us that we would be steaming ahead at 20 knots to our next destination. This may not sound too fast but it feels bad in our cabin at the back of the ship - the vibrations are deafening! Brian is still accompanying me to our Spanish lessons but I'm not sure how much longer he will stand it - he keeps telling me that he is not ...
First formal 'doo' last night, it was an excellent night, we have Bob Champion on-board at the moment and had drinks with him in the Crows nest late last night and we are having dinner with him tonight, a really nice guy and full of great stories.

Lots of bars are open especially around town squares but the restaurants start opening about 8.30pm and don't really get going till after 9pm. A late dinner leads to a late morning and you are out of kilter again!!! We have yet to get it right.
Having said that we have has a couple ...
