Sailing In My Sarong

'A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step,' Lao-tzu. In this case, it begins with a single dream of two people - a 30-year dream to sail around the world. Together. In a boat that they built themselves. Linda Frylink Andersonís book is a gripping, charming and lovely tale. On the way, Linda, a novice sailor, suffers from seasickness, experienced petrifying storms at sea, sailed through pirate territory, worked with street children, ran art and play workshops, and kept up a blog. Together with her husband aka "Captain Underpants", she sailed in their 13.7-meter plywood yacht named Valiam (a combination of their children's names, not a misspelling of the euphoric drug!). This is a story of exploring exotic and remote communities, integrating with the locals and experiencing the vastness of the great oceans and making new friends at each destination. Sailing In My Sarong is an honest account of a 30,000 nautical mile, two-year circumnavigation of the globe visiting 30 countries from Mooloolaba, Australia via Papua New Guinea, South East Asia, The Indian Ocean, South Africa, Brazil, Colombia, Panama, Galapagos and the Pacific. Lavishly illustrated with Linda's vibrant pastel drawings and spectacular photos this could have been a coffee table book to thumb through, but has too much substance to not actually read. A passionate and brave story spoken from the heart. P/B 388 pages.
