Books about Cruising
There are numerous books written about round about sailing voyages circling the globe and many contain excellent preparation tips & advice.
Last week I read two books written by Dutch guys who both prepared for the worst & hoped for the best and accomplished their dreams without loss of limbs & life. They scared the crap out of me though and made me wonder if we had to put more effort in the preparation part of our journey.
Researchers added extra load to my feeling of unease, letting us know that global warming would probably tenfold the chance of sinking our plans in the years to come.

Ingrid's description of the beauty of a stormy ocean, the wonders of nature, a historical building or life aboard, makes you part of her feelings - allowing you to experience it with her.
