Here is the next video in our summer adventure series – Iceberg Encounters (7 minutes).
While cruising in Labrador and Greenland along with our friends on the Nordhavn 68 Migration, we encountered plenty of icebergs. In this video, we visit some up close in the big boats, position ourselves for some photos, and get even closer in the tender – with Captain Gulliver along!
We’ve also added some new book reviews and have added some photos to the Shenandoah page.
We are now in the Chesapeake Bay but will continue to publish stories and videos from the summer over the next few months. In the summer and fall of 2015 we will probably stay in the US where we hope to have friends and family come to visit. So if you’ve talked to us about a visit, or are interested in joining us somewhere next year, please let me know!

Loved the book reviews. Funny how many of the same books we have read. I can see we like the same kind of books so will be purchasing from your list. I could make several recommendations, since Capt Cook is in your newest reveiws, I will recommend Blue Latitudes: Tony Horwitz vividly recounts Cook’s voyages and the exotic scenes the captain encountered: tropical orgies, taboo rituals, cannibal feasts, human sacrifice. He also relives Cook’s adventures by following in the captain’s wake to places such as Tahiti, Savage Island, and the Great Barrier Reef to discover Cook’s embattled legacy in the present day. Signing on as a working crewman aboard a replica of Cook’s vessel, Horwitz experiences the thrill and terror of sailing a tall ship. He also explores Cook the man: an impoverished farmboy who broke through the barriers of his class and time to become the greatest navigator in British history.
By turns harrowing and hilarious, insightful and entertaining, BLUE LATITUDES brings to life a man whose voyages helped create the ‘global village’ we know today.
