Yes, passing through around 22/23 Feb.

I hope to spend a day or two on Palawan and maybe a day in Manila on the way back (30 March).
I've never been to the Phillipines before!

Default It had to happen !!

After almost 2 years in the tropics off India, Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippine, I am now somewhere I've never been before.

Come to think of it, not many people have been here.

77 deg 15 min North
05 deg 03 min West

Off the north-east coast of Greenland for the next month or so.

We will be crew-changing in Svalbard so "hello" to anyone in Longyearbyen!

No BBQ as yet.

Plenty of chili though!

Lots of ice but no gin.

Haven't seen any polar bears, yet, but there's plenty of time.

Happy Christmas everyone !!

I'm away again until 25th January.
This time it's again somewhere nice and warm -- Off the coast of Brasil, 150 miles from Rio.
