The internet Nightmare continues. We use 3G on the phone, with a portable wifi hostspot to the laptop. Works sometimes, for a few minutes. We go to a cafe, useless. We use the Marina wifi. Can’t even connect. So that is why you haven’t heard from us in a while. Finally, today, I put the phone’s SIM card into the Orange Airbox and, lo and behold, it works!
So, first the pressing news. We expect to be leaving tomorrow for a 850 mile sail to Dakar, Senegal. This should take us about 6 days, give or take. We will be mostly out of contact during that time, though we may send a message to Facebook through our inReach satellite device. Once there, we will have to sort out internet again, but being Africa it will probably be better than Spain.
So, what have we been up to?
In brief, we had a great visit in Tennerife, and are now in La Gomera which is spectacular. We will put together a full post on the islands as soon as we can, but what I can say is that this Island is our favorite. If only they could sort out the internet…
Anyway, first priority is to get this message up for you, then we will work on the photos in the next post.
In the meantime you may, or may not, get a mid-ocean update from us on Facebook by using our new inReach satellite device.
Bye for now!
