Jumping Off

After 30 years I retired early. Although I have always enjoyed books about travel and novels set in exotic locations, I haven’t been outside the United States save for a few brief trips to British Columbia. The passport I got in 1976 was never used, so I’m getting a new one.

I am attracted to the idea of travel without rigid time constraints. I want to stay close to the ground, although I don’t mind flying.  Cruise ships and tour packages don’t appeal to me.  The idea is to see how far I can get from Seattle on working ships and trains, and I hope to use this website both as a diversion and as a way to stay in touch.

Retired early, then took a trip across the Pacific from Seattle by container ship. From China I stopped in Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, Turkey, Greece, Italy, France, Holland, Denmark, England and Ireland before heading home to Puget Sound. This blog is an account of my travels.
