CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR PATRONS Marco-SAN, Riz and Maya, and Kerry Porter!! Can you make it to Florida? Send us an email. Thanks so much for the support. Meanwhile, Elayna who was waiting patiently for my arrival in Malta thought I was alone at sea. Houmaid (a man I had just met and asked to come along with me last minute) and I take La Vagabonde from Greece, across the Ionian Sea through to Malta. Very typical of the Mediterranean there was wind, then no wind, then lots of wind, then no wind again. We struggled through our night watches managing to stay awake through a very busy shipping lane. Negotiating the inconsistent winds and managing to get into Malta in short time I was then reunited with Ilyana (this is Romanian for Elayna.) It was great for us to spend a little time apart and for her to be able to hang out with one of her besties from home but it was even better to be back together again.
Nota Bene: If you have heard me calling Elayna “Buukie,” Buukie Pants,” “Pants,” “Panties” or particularly when we were in Italy “Pantaloons” it is a long story that we both think is hilarious but when we tell other people its pretty obvious that it is only funny to us. Like a bit of a cringy couples joke. So just as a small explanation that is why you may have heard me calling Elayna different names.
In case you missed part one of the trip….
