"I wish I could travel like this guy. Even at least by flying."
Nicola Karen Reiss:
"I wish it were a lot easier to travel by ship - I would certainly do it. Going from Europe to Australia by ship used to be the normal and routine way to travel but now it’s almost impossible to arrange. Very sad."
"Awesome this should remind us all to never give up on your dreams no matter what! Shoot for the finish line."
