WiFi is very expensive on the boat, which is why there hasn’t been an update of our journey for some time.After Portugal we headed for Ibiza overnight and Juli and I spent the day on the deck in the harbour, soaking up the rays and painting. Leaving Ibiza in the late afternoon it took us all night, the next day and the following night before we arrived in Malta.
We took a boat cruise around the two big harbours in Valletta, in beautiful weather, before having lunch at the Saluting Battery, with some magnificent views. Afternoon was spent on the boat before we left Malta in some style with the resident band playing in fine style on the aft deck as we left.
Today, Sunday, after two nights and a day at sea, we are in Piraeus, the port for Athens and we have decided to stay on the boat. This morning was sunny, but with a breeze but at the moment it is cloudy.
Some people have been into Athens and said how grubby it is, with graffiti everywhere and one of the crew had 60 Euros stolen!
The food on board is terrific and we have lovely waiters that look after us – the trouble is, we’re now having to look after our waistlines!
