    We went out last night again but I managed to get to bed around 0500 ... I think. So well hung over I'm now leaving Bayona heading for Viana Do
    Castelo in Portugal.

    Last night was a warm and sad goodbye. I'm going to miss every single one of them. I wish I was able to tell them how much they mean to me ... but it's very difficult to explain those kinds of emotions with my lame Spanish abilities.

    Goodbye Spain, hello Portugal

    I'm now crossing the border between Spain and Portugal. So far the ride is like being trapped in a roller coaster with hangovers. There is a lot of swell but not a lot of wind.

    I feel like pizza and video!

    Got safely into Viana. 7 hours in the roller coaster ... where's the pizza.

    Sailing alone with hangovers needs to be on the never-do-again list.

    The weather is beautiful. I'm heading for Leixões near Porto.

    Last night I was met by a very confusing Portuguese official. He told me I should go to the office with my passport and papers right away. But
    take it easy - no rush, he said, just quickly and then he just stood there waiting for me, stressing me further while he kept saying, no rush ...

    After about an hour of no-rush-paperwork (just one form) I searched the city to find pizza and oh, I'll just grab a burger and some fries with that pizza and mind you the look in my face when I realize the burgers in Viana comes without bread? What's up with that?

    I fuelled up about 30 litres.

    I decided to stop in Povoa instead of getting into Leixões late. It's been sunny all day but I had the wind right in my nose so I didn't move very fast.

    This looks like a nice place and I'll be able to get some laundry done with and continue tomorrow.
