As soon as we arrived in Lisbon we went with friends and a car and driver to the beautiful village of Sintra. On the way we paused to photograph the 1749 Pálacio de Queluz.

Sintra is a UNESCO World Heritage site because of its 19th century Romantic architecture.

The World Cruise ends in Southampton, England on April 18th and everyone is busily packing, hugging and saying good-bye. 5000 balloons have been prepared for a balloon drop. It has been a wonderful World Cruise. We are packing as well, but – just to change cabins. We will be staying onboard to lead Easter worship. Happy and Blessed Easter everyone!
