Sometimes I’m surprised but not often as I have become used to strange and erratic behaviour in the political arena. this time I have been very pleasantly surprised. About two weeks ago I published our Douro Kayak dates for 2017 with one 9 night trip in both June and Sept. I sure didn’t expect to get people signing up 15 months in advance. I just wanted to get the word out since many people like to dream and plan ahead. My surprise is that we have already signed up four people for our trip starting in Porto on June 16th. 2017. This is a really special trip because we finish in Porto on St John’s Day and have a front row seat for the rabelo boat regatta which takes place only once a year. Here is a picture of some of the rabelo boats that we can see sailing on June 25.
