Via boat or other transport?

For us- via boat: a trip down the coast from Seattle to the Galapagos, then thru the Canal to the Caribbean..

Via air- Sicily, the Seychelles, and Thailand.

We've been to the South Pacific, Oliver- you'd love it. You might want to follow this blog:

Brian Calvert took his 47 Selene from Seattle to Mazatlan, then across the Pacific to French Polynesia; he's been cruising the area between Sydney and Thailand since 2008.

Nothing quite so exotic--my dream destination is the Gulf Islands/Desolation Sound/Puget Sound area.

Ahhh! Great question....
First, it begins with acquiring a Nordhaven 60. . . (we ARE dreaming, right?) then finding a crewhand (did I mention my Admiral would oject to this dream?) with the skills of the lass who's responsible for [the] Emerald Steel (tip of the hat to Jules; he has quite the good fortune to have partnered up with Suzie.) . . . then it's a matter of finding favorable seas, fair winds, and keeping a bucket list that is continually added to the more I realize how little I know of the world and some of it's amazing places yet to discover. . . (I have lived/traveled all over the entire North American continent and the Caribbean - time to start see the rest of the planet!)

The NW passage has always been a goal of mine since I was a wee nard, but I doubt that one will ever get checked off.

I believe a N57 did that awhile ago. They had use their anchor to break through ice. That would be a fun trip. If we do it we'll need a buddy boat, so I'll keep you in mind.

One of my dream trips would be to go around the gulf of Mexico, down to and through the Panama canal, up to the Sea of Cortez, spend a year or so there cruising and diving, then back to Florida.
