Elafonisos, At Sea

May 28, 2018 - Sea Cloud


There are no finer moments than those, when journeys provoked by the imagination, match the realty of the experience - and such has been this expedition aboard the legendary Sea Cloud.

During our last days at sea the rhythm of the waves has replaced the routine of the everyday work schedules of our busy lives. For many of our fellow travellers, the constant need to be connected has gradually dissipated over the course of this journey -  old fashion books or conversations with fellow voyagers have gradually replaced electronic devices.  Ultimately, the layers of experiences that each of us will take home after this unique journey under sail will be different – like looking through a kaleidoscope - the way we individually encounter each new destination, site, smell, or relationship depends on past travels, our imaginations, and our ability to immerse ourselves in the moment.
