Catana I need to tell you, you’re turning into a shitty boyfriend. I thought as your girl who has said I do, sold everything, cried and kissed loved ones goodbye to live the dream that you are selling, that I was important. Yet now I think Catana you don’t know how to treat me right.
So many nice things about being home over the summer including the chance to organise a new site. Never knock the joys of fast internet! Since we have been travelling I realised I needed a better gallery feature as well as easier blog access. Hope you like it…. let me know! Being home over the Australian
This week a museum story. Are you not excited? The Bardo Museum is recognised as the number one tourist destination in Tunis, so we were keen to visit.

I can’t throw in steak knives but this recipe is not only delicious, easy to make, can be stored in the freezer or long term on a boat or in a pantry. This is the sauce I mentioned, was a great success for the Catana workers’ lunch. Toulee has handed over his secret recipe after a request

Our boat was sailing on a piece of silk, the water so calm it looked like one massive piece of glistening cloth. The boat rose and fell as though the ocean was breathing. No faster than a walking pace we inched further away from Canet de Rousillon and toward our planned escape. For the past seven
I won’t complain about giving the car a wash again. I now have our boat out of the water and cleaning her. Moving Miss Catana The reason we were taking our boat out of the water was to install two new sea outlets, one for the watermaker and a second for the saltwater pump. At the same
