Intro

I have dreamed of sailing the seas since childhood. After years of family living, IT career and multitude of hobbies, I am following up on that dream. It is an open ended journey - no fixed plans and no end date - the time will tell.

My wife joins me on this adventure. As we sail, we learn not to rush, but rather to enjoy the life and beauty of the places we are in - staying as long as we like and moving on when new horizons catch our imagination.

This website is a casual photo chronicle of our journey - a more-or-less daily journal of pretty much what we have seen.
~~ Captain Alex

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did.
So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
-- Mark Twain

We didn't stay long second time around in BVI - visited only few places we had missed the last time.

I didn't find BVI very appealing for a regular cruiser. The whole place is geared toward boat chartering business en masse, they go from one mooring ball to another mooring ball, from one restaurant to another restaurant, using boat as a mean of transportation.

Things are expensive here and mooring balls at USD $30 per night take over best places, leaving very few good spots to anchor.
