A story and some travel tips for that trip you’ve always been talking about.
Or, abiding by YouTube copyright restrictions:
Wonderful video! gives that you-are-there feeling, coupled with that glad-I’m-not-there feeling. And that glad-not-to-spot-any-pirates feeling.
Great video! How does it feel to be on a ship that’s older than you are? Glad you made the trip. Glad you arrived safely.
“So we’re all feeling pretty confident.” !
(then when problems develop)
“I once fixed a lawnmower”?!
Very funny narration. Wonderful music & rapport on board& on shore. You
gifted communicator. Finger in fish eye
memorably squeamish! Btw, how’d you get that aerial shot of Aden?
Ah, the thrill of vicarious living! Once again, thanks for transporting us–this is a mesmerizing video! Great name, “Pirate Alley,” but glad they were frying other fish that day. Looking forward to reading the narrative.
I’m very impressed with the video. What an experience! I agree with the person who said “Very funny narration.” I also think you beautifuly conveyed many of the feelings/moods that the voyage generated – funny, scary, interesting and otherwise. I also wanted to comment on your photos – I looked at the ones from Iraq/Kurdistan and they are wonderful. So many of them show the juxtaposition of war/daily life, decimation/beauty, etc. I especially loved your photos of the children. Your multi-media talents are awesome!
