As I write this we are now approaching the Brazilian coast, having sailed from Funchal eight days ago. The crossing has been very uneventful with not much to say really, our GPSs seem to think its 1993 – apparently its a software fault so we’ve been having to work out required speed and ETA’s the hard way for the past week, but they should be fixed tomorrow when we arrive into Recife.
The ‘Crossing the line’ ceremony was yesterday afternoon and I ended up covered in random food stuffs and in the pool… pictures will follow at some point on FaceBook.
Once we get to Brazil we will be heading south to Argentina and then off to Antarctica for the next couple of months. I am only doing 2 of the Antarctica cruises before I leave to fly home just before Christmas but it should be good fun.
