This Blog serves as two things: a photo-diary of our lives between 2007 and mid 2011, when we saw some incredible things and met some amazing people; and a reflection of our more normal lives since then.

Land ho!

2.30am, Saturday 19th December: We could see the light pollution from Tenerife and Gran Canaria at about 8pm last night, but still continued to rock and roll violently...until I awoke just before 2am to an almost calm ship. We are now on the leeward side of Tenerife, and slowly sailing up the east coast. The sea is like a mill pond, and I am enjoying watching the island's villages go by as we move slowly to meet the pilot at Santa Cruz around 7am. Hopefully we'll be berthed by 8am, and all the vehicles will be unloaded by early afternoon...then we can take a well deserved break ashore. The last 3 days at sea have been the most trying we have ever experienced. Olly
