This is a continuation of a journey that started many years ago. I have had this dream for as long as i can remember. The dream to travel by sea, to make my way from shore to shore, to spend time on the ocean learning of things that can only be fully understood through time in salt air and water. This burning desire was first sparked by hearing stories from my grandmother of past relatives that went to sea, it was fanned and fed by the stories of Hemingway, Louis L'amour, Kipling and countless others. They have all tossed their kindling and added their fuel. It's about facing my many fears, following that dream that I wont let go, even though I must admit that its been considered. Each man has his path to walk, some I will walk, some I will sail . This is a journey not just about me though. This is about the people I will meet, the stories I will hear and the pictures I will take. These things are just as much part of my story as I am. We are all actors in someone else's play and stars in our own. I hope to be able to inspire others out there to follow that dream they have, to not let that small flame of adventure still smouldering inside be extinguished or suffocated by fear.
Through this blog I hope to be able to share some of my photos, stories and experiences with you and invite you to join me as I make my way by sail or sandals.
