I Remember When: We Went Cruising

 

“Humans cannot discover new oceans unless they have the courage to lose sight of the shore.” – Andre Gide

I have sailed on the ocean for years in big cruise ships and small yachts. I have worked for Princess Cruises, Royal Caribbean Cruises and Renaissance Cruises. I have traveled on the inaugural of NCL Bliss with the artist, Wyland, on Fathom Adonia to see the philanthropy projects in the DR, on Viking Cruises to visit the Christmas markets, on Avalon to scuba dive in Cuba and on Ecoventura’s Theory in the Galapagos to see the blue footed booby.

I have always loved to be on the sea and during this time of COVID19, I miss sailing, I miss traveling and I miss people. I wanted to share the stories and videos from some of my past adventures. I hope we can cruise again someday.
