Can you believe this light, blue sky and view over Lisbon??! We couldn’t be more happier than ending this almost 3 weeks voyage in one of our favorite cities. We say goodbye to Le Boreal, who is leaving tonight again en route to Honnfleur together with 200 Americans on board. And we, we are very happy to be here. “J’ai besoin de la mer, pour toucher la terre.” said our favorite Captain Etienne Garcia when he left the boat after months at sea (and after conquering Antarctica with Le Boreal.) “I need the sea to understand the earth.” I now know what he means. Arriving in a wonderful city after so long at sea gives such a rewarding feeling. Although the feeling when a plane touches down, isn’t that bad at all too. Anyway, it’s Portugal time now! Hopefully with lots of sun, good food and wine and friendly people!
