We will be sailing off sometime this weekend for Gambia which should take about a week and then I will set off on my new biking venture.
Yesterday was my farewell party in Moynihans Irish bar in Funchal, with my work colleagues from the Savoy Hotel in Madeira. It is not so often that you meet so many nice and sometimes crazy people in the same place. I had such a nice time working there and found myself among a lot of new friends. Everyone there were so nice. They were from a variety of previous professions from doctors, artists, an ex bank boss, even a millonaire, all of who now work there for fun.....and money of course! As well as them there are people who don't like their own country very much, adventurers, ex army who have fought in Iraq, Afghanistan and Sierra Leone as well as people who have some health problems. Right combination so that you can imagine that all of the time it was interesting and fun times. They are really nice people who I will miss immensely and remember fondly during my travels.
