Day at the Port of Ponta Delgada during a transatlantic crossing

The crossing from Miami to the Azores in Portugal was great. Calm seas and sunny weather, it was however not as warm as the more southern crossing route via the Canarias. Our ship the Celebrity Equinox is docked against a sky of grey clouds. It almost rained the full morning but we still decided to visit the island.

Alongside the port you see many historical buildings. Above the houses there is a lot of smog. This is not from the pollution but low hanging clouds. There is an outdoor Olympic pool, even though it is cold, people are swimming. Some houses and walls are very colorful, sprayed with graffiti.

De trans-Atlantische overtocht van Miami naar de Azoren in Portugal was uitstekend. Kalme zee en zonnig weer, het was echter niet zo warm als op de meer zuidelijke crossing route via de Canarische Eilanden. Ons schip, de Celebrity Equinox is aangemeerd tegen een hemel van grijze wolken. Het regende bijna een volledige voormiddag maar we besloten toch het eiland te bezoeken. 

Langs de havenlijn zie je vele historische gebouwen. Boven de huizen hangt er heel wat mist, dit is niet vanwege vervuiling maar de laag hangende regenwolken. In de haven is een Olympisch zwembad, niet tegenstaande dat het zeer koud is, zijn er toch enkele zwemmers. Sommige huisjes zijn heel kleurvol door graffiti.

    1. Hello, I am Theresa Williams After being in relationship with Anderson for years, he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I mailed the spell caster, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem. His email: {} you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or any other Case.

  12. You should see how my friend Wesley Virgin's autobiography starts in this SHOCKING and controversial video.

    You see, Wesley was in the military-and soon after leaving-he unveiled hidden, "SELF MIND CONTROL" tactics that the government and others used to get whatever they want.

    THESE are the exact same SECRETS many famous people (notably those who "come out of nowhere") and top business people used to become wealthy and successful.

    You probably know how you utilize only 10% of your brain.

    That's really because most of your brainpower is UNCONSCIOUS.

    Perhaps that conversation has even occurred INSIDE OF YOUR own head... as it did in my good friend Wesley Virgin's head 7 years back, while riding an unregistered, beat-up garbage bucket of a car without a driver's license and $3 on his debit card.

    "I'm absolutely frustrated with going through life paycheck to paycheck! Why can't I become successful?"

    You've taken part in those conversations, am I right?

    Your success story is going to be written. You need to start believing in YOURSELF.
