Continuing from where I left of in my last post, as I said our trip from Delhi to Angola is one of my most unforgettable experiences of my sailing days. This incident is deeply imprinted in my memory. It was going to be a memorable trip in any case...
One morning while driving the kids to school we were listening to #Virginradio as is the norm. God forbid I put any other channel! there's immediate teenage wrath to face. After dropping the kids i usually change to another channel but yesterday #ChrisFade was talking about him being embarrassed...
In my last post I've mentioned about my quirkiness about cabs and their huge tabs. It's not that I am a miser or anything like that, it's just that Tankers (I've only sailed on huge oil carriers) are usually  docked in terminals that are quite far from the town...

March used to be a very eventful and busy month for us when my kids were younger. My eldest one completed her school year and had holidays which we would combine with the summer vacations and head off to the ship.  It used to be very busy time deciding...
I still smile every time I think of this incident and wonder how foolish we can be at times. The Ship had just docked in a small town in Italy and as was the norm I took off the minute the immigration formalities were over. It was a beautiful summer...
One of the Ships we were on we had a particularly long sailing  from Houston in US to a Trieste in Italy, which meant crossing the Atlantic and then a couple of days more till we reached Trieste. It was about 14 days and to our bad luck the...
