I don't know at this point just how many photos I have taken of Inga, but what I do know is that it is only a fraction of the time that you do not see her true beauty. Travel suits Inga very well. Her curiosity about the world, her openess of spirit towards the people she meets, and her ever-expanding sense of adventure make her the most amazing travel companion.
[and Inga is beautiful too!]
So here is what is has been like for the last two and a half months of travelling: have an idea; figure it out; smile a lot (actually, have a permanent smile in your heart); follow your passions; have an experience and delight in it for days (and days and ... always).

This part of the journey is yet another type of experience. Neither Inga nor I have been on a boat trip of this nature. We have a cabin with a window and a bathroom. Although it is a cabin for four, we only have one cabin mate, Claudia from Switzerland. She is considerate and friendly and makes for a fine cabin mate. Inga and I brought wine and we plan on sharing it with Claudia tonight. Tomorrow night might not be the night for wine, given the wave predictions. Hopefully it will be a non-issue for Inga and I, and for everyone on the boat, for that matter.
All is well at the moment. I am sitting comfortably in the pub having a cappuccino and listening to the various conversations and the various languages being spoken. What is the common factor amongst all of us who choose to take this voyage? Is there one?
