Arriving at the last State in the States, Saturday, May 11th 2019

USA | Sat, 18 May 2019 | By margitpirsch | Views [38]

Florida! Land of the swamps, snakes and alligators, but also of the soft, warm air (at least in May...), the gentle rain, the extreme downpours, the thunderstorms, the lush, tropical greenery and the warm turquoise sea. During several of our ... Read more >

Did you know what Michael did?

USA | Fri, 17 May 2019 | By margitpirsch | Views [42] | Comments [2]

May 4th 2019  ...in Panama Beach, Panama City, Mexico Beach, FL for miles and miles  around? Reaching 160mph winds? Riding our bicycles through these areas for 2-3 days left me in a state of shock...disbelieve! Seven ... Read more >

USA | Thu, 16 May 2019 | By margitpirsch | Views [46]

..we finally left New Orleans on Monday the 22nd....still vibrating from the experience of the colorful, most musical city with the good wishes of the couple we learned to love.   We were buzzing/vibrating down the highway..... Read more >

ITALY | Thu, 16 May 2019 | By krodin | Views [50]

Quick Jaunt to Sicily  I’ve been looking for a house in the Salzburg region and have been incredibly frustrated with what is on the market for exorbitant prices.  In order to escape a cyclone of despair, I looked for cheap flights ... Read more >

Magnolia Table

USA | Fri, 10 May 2019 | By vagabonds3 | Views [23]

OUR AIR ALASKA FLIGHT TO LOVE FIELD was OK despite some rough air over Dallas and a delay getting to the gate.  We were staying overnight at the Baymont where we left the truck, so it hardly mattered.  And thanks to the onboard self-service ... Read more >

Champion of the Grampians

AUSTRALIA | Thu, 9 May 2019 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [41]

A gloomy day it was today though not so gloomy on the sightseeing front. Upon reading a fantastic article about how you shouldn't write off the rain when you're travelling, I must make it a point to see the positives during those days of precipitation.... Read more >

All Ashore That's Going Ashore: San Francisco

USA | Tue, 7 May 2019 | By vagabonds3 | Views [28]

DAYS AT SEA MELDED TOGETHER as we cruised towards San Francisco, the slowly (but steadily) dropping temperature and the every-other-day time change were the only indicators we were heading northeast.  We scanned the night skies looking for the ... Read more >

Crossing the Equator

FRENCH POLYNESIA | Thu, 2 May 2019 | By vagabonds3 | Views [17]

POLYWOGS NO LONGER, WE ARE FULL-FLEDGED SHELLBACKS.  And we have the certificate to prove it.  Somewhere last night we sailed across the Equator — 0° Latitude — neither North or South.  Sailors have a ritual ceremony presided ... Read more >

Nuku Hiva, Marquessa Islands

FRENCH POLYNESIA | Mon, 29 Apr 2019 | By vagabonds3 | Views [22]

NUKU HIVA WAS A DELIGHTFUL RESPITE AFTER 36 HOURS at sea.  No wave-swept atoll this, Nuku Hiva is an honest-to-betsey island with volcanic cliffs falling to the sea, mile-high peaks and sheltered coves.  The people were welcoming without being ... Read more >

Fakarava, Tuamotu Archipelago

FRENCH POLYNESIA | Sat, 27 Apr 2019 | By vagabonds3 | Views [25]

FAKARAVA IS YET A SMALLER ATOLL than Rangiroa in the Tuamotu Archipelago, 429 square miles overall but only 5% of it above water! It's almost nothing atoll.  Couldn't resist it.  It is hard to imagine life on an island isolated in the Pacific ... Read more >

Rangiroa, Tuamotu Archipelago

FRENCH POLYNESIA | Fri, 26 Apr 2019 | By vagabonds3 | Views [28]

THIS IS THE FIRST DAY I’VE FELT WE WERE REALLY in Polynesia.  Rangiroa is an atoll, a lagoon encircled by coral reefs.  But not just any atoll — Rangiroa is one of the largest atolls in the world.  The sun is shining, ... Read more >

Moorea, Society Islands

FRENCH POLYNESIA | Wed, 24 Apr 2019 | By vagabonds3 | Views [27]

DUE TO A SCHEDULING CHANGE WE DOCKED AT PAPEETE before Moorea.  The islands are so near each other that it hardly matters but this way works out better for us.  Instead of spending our 25 th anniversary looking at the Papeete mall we ... Read more >

Tahiti, Society Islands

FRENCH POLYNESIA | Tue, 23 Apr 2019 | By vagabonds3 | Views [31]

IMAGINE A THOUSAND FOOT CRUISE SHIP pulling up right downtown.  That’s pretty much how the Maasdam docked at Papeete — just across from the mall!  And wouldn’t you know it, there wasn’t a taxi in sight. ... Read more >

USA | Mon, 22 Apr 2019 | By margitpirsch | Views [117]

April 15th - 18th of April Patterson, Kemper Williams Park Peaceful!  A campground for $18. We never spend that much money to pitch our tent, but then, we were here because James felt poorly on that bumpy road what would not leave him ... Read more >

Bora Bora, Society Islands

FRENCH POLYNESIA | Mon, 22 Apr 2019 | By vagabonds3 | Views [23]

WE SPENT EASTER AT SEA.  CRUISING AT A STEADY 15 knots (about 20 mph) Maasdam covers roughly 500 NM on a cruising day, which brought us to the Society Islands.  Once again we anchored off shore, relying on the orange and white tenders to ... Read more >

Work Permit Paperwork for Vietnam

USA | Sun, 21 Apr 2019 | By mwollak | Views [87]

The bureaucratic hoops have by far been the most frustrating part of the process thus far.  I had to collect, notarize, and authenticate too many documents to count and the process has been so confusing that I have oscillated between "I've ... Read more >

Rarotonga, Cook Islands

COOK ISLANDS | Sat, 20 Apr 2019 | By vagabonds3 | Views [19]

WE ARE HAVING TROUBLE GETTING BACK ON SCHEDULE.  Somewhere in all this water we crossed the International Dateline.  In addition to skipping Good Friday, we also skipped our port call in Nihue — it seems a resupply ship beat us to the ... Read more >

I know it's been a long time - too long - since I've written anything but sometimes life comes at you fast and you just have to do everything in your power to keep your head above water.  Professional Life: I've stayed at the same school and ... Read more >
