Las Palmas- get ready for us!

Last night we passed the Cape Verde Islands off the coast of Senegal. We tried to convince the Captain to make a little detour- but no luck... But maybe on one of the next crossings there is a slight chance...

We have now been at sea since the 13th of March- and still have to go until the 28th of March evening when we reach Las Palmas where we will stay for one day only before continuing towards Lisbon. The sea has been really great to us with not too much wind- today was the first day when we experienced some more swell. And if you thought it is a boring time- hopefully your mind has changed by reading our blog!

Today, we are happy to introduce our "DJ":
