Hi, Jan here. Jim has decided he wants to go cruising. Me? I'd be happy just sitting on the beach and watching the waves roll in. But I don't want to stand in the way of his dreams, and I do like exploring new places. Twenty years ago I said "I do", so I'm doing. The following is my journal. These are the experiences of Mañana and her crew, as seen through my eyes. I hope you enjoy our adventures, learn about a new area of the world, and get to experience a different lifestyle from the relative comfort and safety of your livingroom.
