I haven’t been updating this website all that much as of late. It’s not because I don’t want to; rather, it’s because I just haven’t had the time to. And the free time that I use to maintain this website is dwindling substantially over the next few months, so I felt that a little placeholder post was in order.
For the next month or so, I’ll be cruising with Seabourn’s Seabourn Sojourn in Alaska. But in a new twist, it won’t be as a guest. Instead, I’ll be signing on as part of their Ventures by Seabourn expedition team, guiding and lecturing guests for two multi-week voyages as we sail through my two favorite places in the world: Alaska and the coast of British Columbia.

You can read all about my journey with Seabourn in Alaska last year by clicking this link.

For me, this is a wonderful opportunity; something I’ve toyed with for over a decade now. The position is a demanding one, but one that I will relish intensely. I’ll be lecturing on the region’s rich maritime history, its unique Gold Rush sensibilities, and its forgotten ghost towns – see my post on the abandoned town of Ocean Falls, British Columbia, for a taste of what I mean.
To those who have written in over the past months to say they’ve missed my posts, my heartfelt thanks to you all. I appreciate your patience, and I hope you will be patient with me just a little bit longer.
In the meantime, there is a whole repository of Voyage Reports to look through and get that last minute “cruise fix.” Maybe you’ve missed some over the past few years – that’s why I have this handy table here, copied to the end of this post.
It’s time for me to cast off for now, but until next time, happy cruising.
