Safe overnight trip?
Hi! Your post is wonderful! I am thinking on doing the same trip Lençois->Feira de Santana->Valença but I was hesitating on taking the overnight buses as you did. Is it really safe? The bus station in Feira is ok? Thank you in advance! Cheers

thank you!
We have not made it to be an inspiration, we made it to fulfill our own dreams. But, if by our travels we can help others set goals and dreams and go upon fulfilling them - what a great honor!

My husband and I have started talking about taking an extended family trip around the world. We have a two year old son and plan to have another child soon. The planning is in the very early stages, as the trip will be in years to come, but I wanted to let you know that your family travels are an inspiration!

Colombia to Manaus
Hola! I have come across your blog and by far have found it to be the most helpful yet with my questions on travelling from Colombia to Manaus... if it is possible could you please help me with some questions... Do you think it is a wise decision for a solo female traveler to do this trip ? Which boat company did you use? Approximately what was the cost of the trip? I very much appreciate any advice you could possibly relay. Gracias

Shit happens
I did this trip with my Catamaran ( about 35 times and Your experience is of course breathtaking. Being seasick on top of this makes it even worse- but You have to agree, that You reached safe az Cartagena. Your Captain did the right thing- he waited fore daylight, as the risk while rescuing the mast and sails, cables, ropes in the water at nighttime is a lot bigger than by daylight.To catch a 2 hours sleep in the meantime is the best one can do in this situation. You mentioned, that You had fear of the boat turning upside down- which is maybe Your personal impression but without the mast a monohull (single hull sailyacht) is of course more stable then with the load of mast and sails (wind) on top of it. As I know this construction being a big and comfortable luxourios yacht Your fears were absoloutly unrealistic. You should have done that trip in one of the tiny boats some captains offer, below 13 meters of lenght (44 feet) the movement on this vessels is realy killing- vomiting in this never ends- You were on a 18 meter boat with long keel, that doesn´t move at all comparde to this boats. Peter is a reliable and responsible captain and his girlfriend grew up on a sailyacht and is able to navigate this yacht on her own. Shit happenes- You were just unlucky

שלום לך לילך, ושלום לכל משפחת ספיר, בעקבות כתבה באינטרנט הגעתי לקרוא את הבלוג המקסים שלכם, ואני מבלה את השעות האחרונות בקריאה, בהעלאת זכרונות, בקנאה ותקווה שאולי גם לנו זה יקרה. לפני חמש עשרה שנה, אני ובעלי עשינו את אותו המסלול כמעט (שם הכרנו), ומדהים איך השמות והחוויות עדיין חקוקים עמוק בזכרון. כיום, חמש עשרה שני אחרי, ושלושה בנים, הרצון לחוות זאת עם הילדים מפעפע בנו מדי יום. גם אנו נמצאים בשליחות כבר חמש שנים, בארה"ב, הבנים בני 9, 5, 3, ומקווים שביום מן הימים, אולי תוך כדי החזרה לארץ, נעשה עצירת ביניים ארוכה בדרוםמרכז אמריקה. מאחלת לכן חזרה לשיגרה בצורה מהירה, והשתלבות חלקה במסגרות החינוך ובעבודה, ענבל

Great meeting such a nice family!!!
We met in the boat tour of Lake Titicaca, then we stayed in the same house in Amantani Island. It was a real pleasure to meet such a nice family. I am so glad we could meet again here in Sao Paulo before they went back to Israel!!!! I hope we can meet again next year when I go to Israel (april 2011). I am happy that the whole trip went well. Good luck in the new life back in Israel!!! A big hug!!! I will miss you all!!!

Hi everybody, We enjoyed your log about the Galapagos but we were also sad because we haven't done it with you in April. Oh my god it is there so beautiful. Anyway, we started again with eating all the food, packing etc.. On 28th of July we are moving to Belgium with the promise to the kids and ourselves that we will visit you in Israel one day. When are you returning ? Miss you all Sabine
