My Travel Map

I’ve travelled so far! to the lands I had never known to be existing.


Sailing round the globe has blessed me with these great chapters in my life. No regrets,it wasn’t a bad decision to join Merchant Marine!




  1. Sailors always are more familiar with ports half-way round the world than their home town. How wonderful. And I can imagine all the conversations with locals and mariners all over the world.

    • Trouble is, dear Hidden Pearl, that you see too little of each country you visit nowadays (it takes hours to unload and re-load your ship at most ports today), and too long — at least a week at sea — between the landfalls, when you seen nothing but the sea and your ship and your shipmates’ faces πŸ™‚

      Travel by sea is not like a movie where you can cut out the sea-time and extend your landfall time. Even in my time (the 1970s and 1980s) landfalls lasted not longer than a day or two. Most of the sights you can see is the nearest pub or a bar or a bordello, if at all πŸ™‚

      • Yes, its so true. We don’t get much time, after all we have to finish of our work also, well whatever time we have in hand, and whenever we have it, we go out and have a good time πŸ™‚

  2. Wow, Abhi! You are really a man of the world now! But, man, you have never let it be known — Have you made master mariner? What’s your current position, Abhi? πŸ™‚
    Thanks in advance —
