"Freighter Cruising the Ocean
For those of you who have been following the blog, perhaps you have read our profile. One of the included interests is "ocean shipping". Perhaps you may have interpreted that to mean we like spending time on ships ... cruise ships. Correct, but more than that we would like to spend time on a Freighter Cruise. Unknown to many, freighter ships have room for a very few passengers ... usually 10 or less. There is no fancy entertainment! However, the reports are that the food is excellent, accommodations are adequate, and the ports-of-call are amazing. Freighter ships can often get into smaller ports than larger cruise ships. Getting away from the tourist attractions can give you a more realistic view of what some parts of the world are like."
Fast forward to today ...
During the current "lockdown" I've been watching more YouTube videos than ever. I just discovered Eva zu Beck's vlog and her June 28th post, 14 Days on a CARGO SHIP During the Pandemic. What a fascinating story of her voyage on a freighter. Enjoy!
Tomorrow ... Curiously enough, my post tomorrow will be about a cargo ship, a vehicle carrier, which I spotted on July 11. The ship is currently enroute to Yokohama, Japan.
Thanks for stopping by John's Island.
