Shock! Horror! Following Lorraine’s confirmation that she is jumping ship I have decided to follow suit. Prompted by an incident yesterday I have decided to do myself a favour and take a break, heading inland towards the capital, Lisbon.
Despite my honest account of events thus far I think you’ll agree that the last month has been a fantastic experience and great fun. It’s seen a number of ups and downs, as to be expected from sharing 37ft of space with three other adults, but nothing can replace the adventure we have had. I wanted to tell the skipper this, so as I stepped off the boat and offered my hand in thanks, he started shouting at me about a broken cable that he accused me of breaking! So whilst Lorraine received a goodbye hug, I get a rather embarrassing shouting at. To be honest this made for a very sad end to what has otherwise been a great adventure.
