New livery for CONDOR FERRIES

The new livery of the CONDOR FERRIES, looks in my opinion really smart, here is the "COMMODORE CLIPPER" arriving Portsmouth last week, photos taken from PONT-AVEN, 20.10.2015

Cruising the MED on board GRIMALDI's cruise ferry "CRUISE BARCELONA"

Cruising the MED could be just spectacular, most of the times, the sea is calm and the temperature is warm throughout the year, last Saturday I have sailed once again from Barcelona to Civitavecchia on board GRIMALDI's mega cruise ferry "CRUISE BARCELONA", one of the two luxury sisters, the other being the "CRUISE ROMA", employed on this route with daily departures from each port, apart from Sunday, photos taken nearing the end of the voyage, our almost final approach to Civitavecchia, the Port of Rome.

Fishing trawlers at Barfleur

I have sailed recently on BARFEUR, the 1992 year built Brittany Ferries ship, she is named after the village of Barfleur, just round the corner from Cherbourg, the home port of the ship for her crossings to Poole in the UK, after disembark, with some spare time decided to do the 25 minute drive to Barfleur and make a few photos, this is a very picturesque seaside village, with the reputation for being one of the most beautiful villages in France, this "post" is a tribute to the local fishing trawlers, Barfleur my kind of place. 28.9.2015
