In celebration of ONE YEAR since departing for my voyage around the world with Peace Boat, I thought I would share this video I made as part of a fun way to remember my trip… I was only using my iPhone for ‘equipment’, so it was impossible to play the song and film simultaneously; IContinue reading “Happy Anniversary — A Peace Boat version of “This is the New Year””
Not done yet, but because I havent had any time to make individual posts, I thought I would give you an idea of the past 85 days on Peace Boat. Enjoy!
Well, here it is — day 52, the mid-way point of my round-the-world voyage with Peace Boat.

However, I found an HK travel partner inContinue reading “HK”
