I am boarding the freighter in Southhampton UK. I am very excited about my new adventure! Derek my driver picked me up early morning for the drive to the South of England. Paul very kindly is storing 8 suitcases for me until I arrive back in Cambridge from India. I will have 3 days to sort out luggage, before I travel to Athens! I have been asked by a writer to keep a detailed account of the Freighter trip. (I will try) Traveling like this needs a whole new language. Our ports include; Antwerp, Rotterdam and Bremerhaven plus La Havre and final stop in NY after 18 days! More info after October 2nd!
My room is really excellent. It’s a large corner room with 3 windows. 2 to view Ocean and one to see containers. There are 2 beds a sofa, coffee table, chair, large desk, full bathroom, and wrap around balcony!
