A day in the life of a traveler in Cartagena. Visiting places like this never grows old.
Downsizing my living space in 2015 started a journey that I'm still on today.
One can get into a lot of stuff in a week in Cartagena! Colombia is a great place!
There have been a few times over the past week where I've said to myself, "I'm never going sailing again!" I know, not what you'd typically hear from my thoughts on sailing. I've been sick over the past 3 years while sailing, but I've never experienced Dingue Fever and sailing before and it is a … Continue reading Update from the Infirmary
We arrived at Ilha dos Lencois a couple of days ago. It's quite a cool little place to come escape the weather and just chill in a sea river, giving us a break from the nightly watches for a couple of days. We came in and the dept was about 3-4 meters, and this is … Continue reading Ilha Dos Lencois and Dengue Fever!

We got on the road today around 1 pm, sailing and motoring through the rest of the chain of islands near Bazaruto, eventually coming out into the ocean. There were a few dicey moments where … Continue reading Moving On From Bazaruto, Mozambique

First off, I don't know how I can even begin to share with you … Continue reading Bazaruto, A Sand-dune Slice of Heaven
One of the tricky things about sailing a passage is arriving at the right time. It's not as easy as you would think. Especially when you are traveling under sail, powered by the wind, which may or not be a constant thing. In fact, most of the time it is not. You could end up … Continue reading Bazaruto, Arriving at the Right Time
Lots of fun and excitement as we round the Northern tip of Madagascar.
Watching the sun set over Madagascar.
Checking in and out is sometimes fraught with peril..
Global Hitchhiking is sometimes like online dating. You have to find a boat to hitchhike on and boats have to find a crew member to help out. How do you make a match?
What does it take to get started in Global HitchHiking?
I'd like to introduce you to a concept I call Global Hitchhiking. Global Hitchhiking is what I've been doing for the past 2 years as I've sailed around the world on other people's boats.
