THURSDAY 1 NOVEMBER
Today we arrived to Funchal, Madeira. Its our first stop after one day and two nights at sea. It was lovely to wake up today, finally a bit rested! We started the day with a short 30 minutes at the gym overlooking the port, then breakfast on the outer deck with more views and warm weather. We got of the boat and walked to the centre where we had some wine and sorted out a few things on the internet. Thankfully this beautiful island has free wifi in the city centre!! I have been suffering from vertigo and after consultation with my sister who went sailing not long ago I was recommended to drink wine. Therefore, after our first wine stop, we moved on to have lunch with a bit more wine. I feel much better!!
I’m back on the boat now, its 16:30 and the journey continues in half an hour. Its pouring down outside now so I’m expecting more waves and a rocky road ahead of us… but tomorrow morning we’re in Tenerife so it’s all good!
