RTW and the vegan traveler – part 1

Another one of the scheduled blog posts, as I make my way across the Pacific onboard the Cap Capricorn. One of my readers (fine, my mom) asked me for a post on traveling around the world as a vegan. A good proposal, actually, and a topic I have neglected. Let me begin by explaining why…

RTW cargo ship to Australia

This is a scheduled post, one of several, while I make my slow way aboard the Cap Capricorn from Long Beach USA to Melbourne Australia. After two amazing months in the US, I will have plenty of time to relax, as the voyage takes three weeks. For details about the ship, as well as a link…
