Default Solange still sailing?????

Off again...
I haven't been here much for a while... Work has been far too stressful lately, I haven't had much time or energy to post or keep up my forum life... And now I'm going away for a month...

Monday morning I set off with one of my classes. We are flying over to London, and in the evening we'll head down to Dover where the pretty lady waits for us. After a day in Dover we'll cross the channel and head for Zeebrugge where we'll stay only for a day and a half, to rest after the crossing... I expect to be seasick... We will also take a trip to Brugge before we depart. After Brugge, we set sail towards Den Helder in Holland. We'll visit some shipyards in Den Helder, and take a trip to Amsterdam.

After a few days there, we will head up to the Kiel Canal and soon I will be surrounded by the Baltic again. We'll make a few stops on our way up to Stockholm, before we dock at the school, on the 17th of May!

My main job on board is teaching, I won't go as a sailor, even though I'm sure I will do some maritime work on board. If nothing else, I'll teach my students the COLREG's etc.

I'm really looking forward to this! Work has truly been hell lately, so getting away for a while will be a treat, even if it is still work. And the same day I dock in Stockholm, I'll go on my next trip. In fact, I won't even have time to go home, I've brought another suitcase to work, so I'll shower and change suitcase there, and then I'll fly to England for a few long needed days off!

I'll be in charge of a very nice and handy little digicam, so expect photos when I return!

Keep a seat warm for me, and keep your fingers crossed for me, that I don't get too sea sick...

: Doesn't look good. Gone too long. Maybe just tired of everything; according to the thread.
A day late and a dollar short!

What exactly is a Specialist? L23 last I checked!
