CCM La Traviata Freighter!

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!

  1. Hi there!!

    Great to see your adventures are continuing. I like the look of your spot on the ship! It looks quite nice!

    I am headed to Mallorca for a road bike trip the third week of Oct. I think it starts around Oct 15. If you have any suggestions of great things to see there, let me know.

    My friend John’s sailboat sustained damage (to what extent we don’t know yet) as it was stored on the hard in Tortola where the eye of the hurricane came through. Now Maria is on her way at a Cat 5 again… We know many people who have lost their homes. The BVI’s are a mess. Its really tragic. It will take years for them to rebuild.

    I have had a great summer here in Collingwood doing lots of road biking and some sailing. I had a great trip out to the Seattle area in July which was also a wonderful time.

    Are you headed to Toronto after you land in New York?

    Enjoy the trip and I hope there are few waves and a nice smooth trip for you.
