In a few short weeks, we will reach our third anniversary aboard Papillon. Not bad for a trip that was only supposed to be two years long. And although I've baked enough cakes lately to last me until the end of time, I come from a birthday/anniversary/Groundhog Day-celebrating tribe. What to do to mark the occasion?
Lightbulb! What better way to say: Happy Anniversary Papillon! than to make you do all the heavy lifting? So I am opening up a Q&A. What is it you want to know, dear reader? Are you curious about cruising? How to get started? What you need to know? What you will figure out later? How to deal with hearing impairment? Vision impairment? Seasickness-related mental impairment? What bad advice have we ignored to our advantage? What dumb things will we never do again? Are there really pirates out there?
|The only good pirates are birthday pirates.|
|Want to know what seasickness feels like? I can tell you.|
Sailing, life aboard, our trip - any and all (polite) questions will go in the grab bag. So leave a comment with your burning questions below (the shy among you can feel free to email me at sailing dot papillon at gmail dot com instead), and let's see what Sailing Papillon readers have on their minds.
