Walking at night from the nearest bus stop into the harbour territory I ended up at Newark Airport. Some taxi driver who was quite familiar with the place finally got me to the right dock. But he said he had never been to this part of Newark and was unsure if this was still officially US territory and he was allowed to drive in the place with his taxi. When I finally walked up the gangway of Maersk Pecem it was in the middle of the night and I had not noticed any official border. The time on board was one of the best times I had during all my travels. Philippine food is not my favourite but I definitely enjoyed listening to the 20kn head wind at the bow of the 200m colossus passing through the waves of Atlantic ocean while the places I had been to where passing through my mind.
This travelblog is about the places I have visited during my world trip in 2005/2006. Starting in Germany it covers many places in the Middle East, in Asia, in Australia, and in New Zealand. On the way back I visited some parts of South America, Central America and the US. In the end I got on board a container ship to get back to Europe. Have fun browsing the journals.... full info
