2017 Grand World Voyage, Day 209, At Sea

Well, the end of this 7 month voyage is quickly drawing to a close….  Fortunately, we have been blessed with sunny weather so far.  It has been nice to relax poolside and enjoy these final days amidst the pain of getting all the packing done.  Last night we had the Mariner’s Appreciation night and our final Ball after dinner.  Lovely evening….  This voyage has had so many amazing moments that it’s hard to put into words.  Our Overland journeys were spectacular.  It will take some time to let it all soak in when I arrive home.  As I go through all the photos (thousands upon thousands) when I create my book it will be nice to relive the adventure once again.  Just a few more days and on the 26th I wing my way home…..  Many more adventures are coming up but my blogging future is up in the air…..

2017 Grand World Voyage, Day 204, Funchal, Madeira

Well….  We are visiting our last port!  Where has the last 7 months gone/  It has truly been an amazing adventure…..  I went into Funchal by myself this morning without much of a plan, I have visited here numerous times. I still loved walking the cobble streets, admiring the gardens, traditional black & white mosaic sidewalks, the forts and everyday people going about their business…..  It was a lovely walk and a relaxing way to finish out this Grand World Voyage.  It has been great!!!!!
