I've sailed in over 20 countries. I would go back in a heartbeat to 19 of them. The one I wouldn't would surprise most people here.
Cruising the Pacific Northwest
, USA and Canada is amazing during the summer and fall.
Mexico's west coast
has much to recommend it in the Winter Months.
was amazing cruising, lots of great animals
to see, some of the warmest and friendliest people I have ever met.
, wow the scuba diving
was out of this world.
was great, friendly people a very different culture from my own, wonderful to visit!
Nuie Wow again great diving
, wonderful people can't be beat. Smallest country I have ever personally been to.
Palmerston atoll, great place, can't recommend it enough, cried when we left.
Looking forward to checking out Australia
some day coming up.
Everywhere has good things and bad things about it. The USA can be an amazing place to cruise
, it can also be a bureaucratic nightmare.
We have everything here, from the Fiords of Alaska
, to The swamps of Florida
. The largest bodies of fresh water
to sail on. (That wasn't a my lakes are bigger than your lakes thing, just it is amazing to sail on them, Fresh water
and out of the sight of land, pretty amazing!)
Some places appeal to some people. I would caution everyone that wants to go cruising to never listen to the press to form an opinion of foreign countries. Either the country that I am from or the next country that I am going to. Every one of them has great things about it, and bad things about it. Comes with people being involved. Most of the time you have to go to the country to see what YOU think about it.
