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!


About Betty Steinhauer

Betty Steinhauer was born in England and raised in Toronto, Canada. Even as a young mother, Betty was active in the community sitting on a number of boards and lending her expertise to various public organizations. In 1983, she founded Betty Steinhauer & Associates Ltd. a consulting firm where, for twenty-five years, she used her unique abilities to act as a catalyst, facilitator and advisor to both the private and public sectors, in forging relationships between organizations and/or individuals for mutually advantageous outcomes. For many years, Betty travelled widely in out-of-the-way areas of the world. As she travelled, the idea for The People Bridge Charitable Foundation was formed. The People Bridge was registered as a Canadian charity in 1997. The mandate of the Foundation was to facilitate important changes in the lives of ordinary people through small-scale charitable projects. Betty has now retired the Foundation that, during its lifetime, undertook over 100 projects worldwide, mostly in conjunction with organizations already working in the target area. Betty’s experience and expertise in business, along with the advice and assistance she receives from colleagues around the globe, give her a unique ability to spot the need and understand how it can be met. Betty has the unusual combination of an entrepreneur’s abilities and an intrinsic understanding of people. Betty has visited India seventeen times in the past twenty years to pursue her spiritual journey. She has frequently been a guest of the Brahma Kumaris and the World Spiritual University to study meditation and further her own spiritual life. Betty is currently active with the Steering Committee of the Spirit of Humanity Forum, in Reykjavik, Iceland. This is an annual Forum that, it is felt, will become to the spiritual world what the Davos Forum is to the financial world. Betty makes her home in Toronto, and has published her memoir “My Way”. She began her Nomadic Internship in the summer of 2013.

    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.
