Week Two

Dear freinds, I hope that life is good for all of you. I will admit - uploading and doing blog posts is basically near impossible while sailing the ocean blue - but I am doing my best. We are coming to the end of our 2nd week - I cant believe how fast the time has gone by. Whats life like on the ship? Small, tight spaced, not alot of water, no internet, and a bit rocky. My first sail wasnt the best. I felt probably the most sick than I have in the last few years. You know that feeling where you just feel so horrible you want to get sick but your body just wont let you? I have this fear of throwing up and it bit me in the butt a week ago. I felt terrible. I wanted nothing more than to throw myself overboard...but I made it! Alive and well, smile on my face. I guess this whole sailing this really is possible. Tomorrow we embark on our next sailing adventure. We are sailing from the Gold coast to Brisbane - which in a car takes about an hour, but its going to be a 12 hour sail ride. Isnt that madness?! I can hardly believe it. Its a day sail though so im hoping the sun will cheer up my spirits a bit!

What have I learnt so far?

Dolphins are magnificent fish
Anchors are very hard to put into the water without the correct tools
Ship bedbunks are the most comfortable thing...ever!



The port that we are docked at at the moment is the nicest place ever. I feel like im in some 5 star vacation zone. I actually feel like im on the TV show the OC - waiting for Jimmy Cooper to just roll up on his boat and say hello. Its so lovely here. I thought of all of you out in the blogging world actually, because as I sit here and write this, I am sitting in a mall with stores that even if I saved my piggy bank for three years wouldnt be able to buy anything at. Im actually writing this at Mcdonalds....thats about all I can afford here - but you guys would love it!



Well, I must get going. Its our last day of tours this afternoon and I still need to eat some lunch. Big mac, anyone? Till next time....x
