April 9th – May 12th

Many apologies to my thousands of blog followers (ok, all three of you), for my slackness on the blogging front.

The Africa to Europe cruise on the Silver Wind, finished in a blur in Lisbon, as I met up with a couple of old schoolfriends in Lisbon and had a boozy weekend in the Portuguese capital. On any walk down the street, we were offered drugs an average of once every three minutes - however, we had enough self-administered beer to make any drug taking completely pointless.

After that, we were in the UK for an enormous amount of DIY and a fair amount of catching up with family and friends. By May 12th, we were exhausted and in need of a break, so a three month trip in the camper van round Germany was just what we needed.
