Fascinating story about passage of the Panama Canal...
I only sat at the Captain's table as one of twelve passengers on a freighter crossing the Pacific...he was not pleased as I was not wearing a shirt! Earlier I cruised from Singapore to Colombo to Bombay to Karachi to Aden through the Suez Canal to Naples. In the Suez Canal a gully gully man came about to entertain us with a cobra. I was not aware that the Egyptians had closed the canal from 1967 to 1975. You were fortunate not to be trapped.

Gully gully men
Gidday Bob, Thanks for the comment. The gully gully men must have been everywhere in those days. We had one come on board off Colombo, and I was the poor bunny selected to go up front so he could demonstrate how he could pull live chickens out from behind my ears. I had no idea how he was doing it. I'll be writing about this post after next! Cobras sound a bit more scary!! Glad I didn't have to ensure that. Cheers, Dave

The beach is really amazing, but you should have tried more Portuguese food. The food here in Albufeira is great and we feel you missed an opportunity!

What a gorgeous photo
I really enjoyed this post Dave. And as a child who was 'renowned' for speaking my mind, I have certainly sat through many an icy trip with my parents too! p.s. Nice shorts :)

I was surprised that you only ate at Tivoli...
and didn't ride the amusement park attractions. I was also there in 1964. I wonder if we passed each other!

Tivoli
I might have seen you if I hadn't been too busy eating..... I think I did go on some of the rides; just don't have any photos to prove it.

Thanks for your kind words. Blogging was my wife's idea, as she thought it would be good to have some sort of record of our travels. I now love it. I just write whatever comes into my head, however stupid.....

Great blog! Name of your accommodation on Redang?
Hello! My 16 yo daughter and I are planning on travelling through Malaysia including the east coast islands. We've heard that the places to stay on Palau Rendang are mainly local group tourist bookings where you need to plan your day from breakfast to dinner with snorkelling in between... I loved reading your blogs and would love to know the name of the place you stayed on Redang and whether you would recommend it? Thanks! Shell & Mia

Pulau Redang
Hi Shell and Mia, Many thanks for your message. We stayed at the Taaras Beach and Spa Resort. It was a bit pricey but we really enjoyed it. The beach that it's on is absolutely spectacular, and the beach in the next cove around (about a 15 minute walk) was even better - probably the best beach I've ever seen, and we've been to a lot of beaches. It never seemed to have any people at it, and we still don't know why. It was the end of season coming into the monsoon which might have had something to do with it, but the weather when we were there (early October) was fine. All we wanted to do was relax at the end of a couple of months away, so this place suited us just fine. There's probably not a lot to do if you wanted a really active holiday, so depends what you're looking for. Good food and service (service apparently used to be terrible based on the reviews we saw, but they've now imported a whole bunch of staff from Lombok and they were excellent), and very nice rooms overlooking the beach. The resort is all on its own with no others anywhere near it; all the other resorts on the island seemed to be on Redang Long Beach which is on the other side of the island. The beach there was OK but not as nice as the Taaras Beach, and the resorts didn't look as nice either from what we could see from the outside. There would however probably be a bit more to do there if that's what you were looking for. We loved Pulau Redang and would highly recommend it. Good luck, and please don't hesitate to get back in touch if we can help more. Cheers, Dave and Issy

Melhor lugar turístico de Portugal
Albufeira não só é uma cidade fantástica em termos de gastronomia, cultura e diversão como também aglomera algumas das melhores praias que já visitei. Aconselho muito a visitar este local turístico e a conhecer o que de melhor ele tem para oferecer.
