In this first of a three-part series, Scott and Mary Flanders discuss the reality of Mediterranean cruising, and why it is easier than you might think to enjoy this wonderful area. Their experiences on Egret, their Nordhavn 46, should inspire you to enjoy your own world cruise.
Scott and Mary Flanders reflect on their world cruising adventures and highlight those areas they found most appealing to North Americans. Not everyone has the means to travel the world in a full displacement passagemaker, and this cruising couple explains us how we can explore the world in a way that is more attainable.
Cruising the Mediterranean is a unique experience, with rich history, fabulous cuisine, and crystal clear waters. The crew of Egret share their visit to Ponza off the Italian coast, a wonderful island that called them back several times. Scot and Mary urge you to go there on your own boat.
Scott and Mary Flanders share their photos and thoughts of traveling the less-popular cruising grounds of Newfoundland and beyond. The imagery is fabulous and the trip quite a unique experience to complement any cruising agenda.
The joys of cruising diminish when the trip becomes a monotonous routine, every day like the one before, always moving, pushing ahead to the final destination. It is a good thing to remember why you are out there, and find a way to slow down the daily grind, and enjoy the wonders that surround you each day.
