I've got an expensive half naked boat and no woman! I must really be doing it wrong.

At least you have a boat ... imagine NO boat and an expensive woman!

Its a pitty the OP's are missing Australia and the Great Barrier Reef.

Our trip is 2 1/2 years round and many have said we have gone very fast. I don't know how we could do it faster, but I know it can be done.

The 18 month rtw is the shortest using the correct seasons.

It just stuffed if you get to the Galapagos and a baby sealion takes residence on you swim platform and you don't want to leave! Or you find some out of the brochure island in tha Pacific, or the caribbean or the Maldives, or the Great Barrier reef.

Anyway, I am sure to meet Taru and Alex on the way to the Caribbean

I found your blog is really amazing - dont change a thing - we are getting ready to cruize, leaving South Africa in February and currently rigging our Lagoon 440. Your site is inspirational and I think it's impotant to feel free, be free and be real - DONT CHANGE A THING !!!

I'm enjoying the blog, so keep it up! I like the refreshing outlook, great photos, food tips, and the general atmosphere. Having done 18 months in the Med and visited many of the places you've visited, it's nice to remember those names I forgot, feelings, and pleasant times. Looking forward to your start from Barcelona - easily in my top 5 places in the Med to visit.

After all the controversy and opinions about the OPs blog, I think this random, off-the-cuff comment has absolutely nailed the issue... Mark's blog always feels real, theirs never did

I'm not sure if he was talking about Mark's blog or the original poster's blog- I've enjoyed reading both of them personally.

Good point. It's still a bit early in the morning here

Borrowing roughly from another thread.... I guess I read the BS I wanted to hear...
The world isn't making sense yet. I think I still need a few more hours zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzes

Yikes! Very good point. At least I can find me some inexpensive women along the way. With an expensive woman, I'd probably be doomed to never getting the boat...not even the cheap one.

I could easily see it done MUCH slower. Honestly, I can see taking the rest of my life to complete the trip...if I do it, by actually spending a little time at each stop along the way.

We took 11 years for our second one, and that felt rushed at moments

But I do figure a fast first one is good, because it will tell you what sort of boat you really want and where you will like to go for your second longer one.

Thumbs up Nice Blog

I've read their blog a few times and don't see anything wrong with it. I've read it at work and found nothing untoward about it. It's a little more streamlined and professional looking than most but as I understand it the young ladies profession is web design. I think it's nice and the recipes are great (I've used some at home). Though I'm currently an "armchair" sailor I'd like to be out there doing it someday and they have some good information and location ideas. Keep up the good work.
