MS Lindblad Explorer – the biggest adventure of my life– 07.07.1978– 13.07.1979
From Price Rupert, Canada to Hong Kong .. over Antarctic, Bali, Pitcairn Islands, Philippines, Easter Island, Bora Bora, Japan, Chile, South Pool, Tahiti, Samoa Islands, Argentina, China, Tonga, Thursday Island, North Island, Indonesian, New Guinea, Borneo, Great Barrier Reef, Falkland Islands, Alaska, Robinson Crusoe Island, Fiji …. And more and more .. and more. Can’t remember them all. Today I wish that I had kept a diary.
Most memorable ???!! Without any doubts – Antarctic, Pitcairn Island and Borneo Orangutan Survival Center – today called BOS
Unforgettable journey – unforgettable year – and I got US dollars tax free for doing it and quite a few!
Will share …. but not the money (all gone) …
