The photography is still going strong. I feel like I'm improving, although at times I feel like I'm getting over-excited when I see something I really want to capture. I forget to check settings and get all clumsy. Anyway, it's a learning process that I am enjoying immensely, especially when I continue to get better and better feedback and more and more likes on my facebook and flickr pages. It...

“To be truly challenging, a voyage, like a life, must rest on a firm foundation of financial unrest. Otherwise, you are doomed to a routine traverse, the kind known to yachtsmen who play with their boats at sea... cruising, it is called. Voyaging belongs to seamen, and to the wanderers of the world who cannot, or will not, fit in. If you are contemplating a voyage and you have the means, abandon the venture until your fortunes change. Only then will you know what the sea is all about.”
Christopher Combe, One Year in Wonderland: A True Tale of Expat Life in Dubai
