Leaving Porto Santo - Our Hotel California

15 December 2023 | Porto Santo
Nichola Wright
Porto Santo has become our Hotel California, the place from where however hard we try, we just can't leave. Or for fellow fans of The League of Gentlemen, it is now our Royston Vasey. But at long last the day had arrived where we were finally leaving Porto Santo for destinations south.

We'd arrived 18 months ago with a broken engine. Now after a rollercoaster ride of emotions as we'd rebuilt the engine, we were finally ready to leave under our own steam.
