You can follow our journey and the people show have shared their stories on this story map. The following icons are used one the story map.
What will follow? The Mediterranean, the Caribbean, the Pacific, or perhaps the Northwest Passage? The future seems less predictable than usual and I’ll do my best to keep the route updated. Links to the potential route can be accessed by clicking the link in the story map ships-wheel icon. Links to videos and interviews can be clicking the link within the respective icon.
Due to the current corona virus pandemic our plans are subject to change and ports-of-call must be carefully chosen. Even more attention must be paid to the power of the sea. One of my favorite quotes about the sea is from Ernest Hemingway and is found below.
“He always thought of the sea as ‘la mar’ which is what people call her in Spanish when they love her. Sometimes those who love her say bad things of her but they are always said as though she were a woman. Some of the younger fishermen, those who used buoys as floats for their lines and had motorboats, bought when the shark livers had brought much money, spoke of her as ‘el mar’ which is masculine.They spoke of her as a contestant or a place or even an enemy. But the old man always thought of her as feminine and as something that gave or withheld great favors, and if she did wild or wicked things it was because she could not help them. The moon affects her as it does a woman, he thought.”
