I was thinking about this nonsense last night.. Sailing around the world.
First off, why go off sailing around the world and never stopping? The idea is to enjoy the journey, isn't it? The reward for going out on the water, to cruise, is to arrive at a safe port, to meet new friends, to learn about different cultures, to understand the human experience. Even a summer cruise is like this. When you are telling your friends about your cruise, you don't go on and on about the water, the waves, you speak about the beautiful harbors, the interesting folks you met. Stepping on a boat, and then 27,000 miles later, stepping off. So What ? Who cares.
