Still Alive and Cruising Indonesia

Hi Folks

We just got a bit of internet on the boat using the same USB modem that we used in Australia and a local Indonesian SIM card for a cell phone (mobile phone)

This internet age is rolling out fast!

The USA may get a similar system in 10 or 20 years

The cruise is going well; Nicolle is happy I am happy and Sea Life is doing her incredible best as usual! She is totally happy!

For all you people still at home I can tell you this.... its better here with us than back in the old life. So shove the things aside that block you going and get cruising


Mark
