Re: Cruising vs. Voyaging
I posted this on another forum a while back, perhaps it can help;
As resistant to new ideas as us old sea dogs are, sometimes we must bend with the wind. So after accepting my actual place in the universe, I hereby declare that my lady and I are no longer cruisers; henceforth we are voyagers!
"To be truly challenging, a voyage, like a life, must rest on a firm foundation of financial unrest. Otherwise, you are doomed to a routine transverse, the kind known to yachtsmen who play with their boats at sea..."cruising" it is called.
Voyaging belongs to seamen, and to wanderers of the world who cannot, or will not, fit in. If you are contemplating a voyage and you have the means, abandon the venture until your fortunes change. Only then will you know what the sea is all about".
