Prelude to the PCW Freighter Voyage Edition

Share with a colleague!

Dear Readers,

After careful deliberation here on the high (but calm) seas of the South China Sea I decided to publish to you all what I would call a Prelude to the PCW Freighter Voyage Edition. After completing my voyage I will send proper travel editions on the 9th, 16th and 23rd of May depicting my current epic tour onboard mv ABB Vanessa from Sines, Portugal to Soma, Japan. I will not preempt the May issues but I just wish to show you my current position in the world, due west of Palawan, Philippines.

Originally I traveled as an adult passenger first in 2005 from Malta to Khor Fakkan via Suez and have since done it every 2 years, give or take. Now, prior to the weekend coming tomorrow I hereby repeat 3 travel reports that you may find interesting to read whilst sipping on a drink or a cafe latte.

  1. mv CMA CGM Christoph Colomb:
    From Southampton to Hong Kong in 2015. My daughter joined me to Malta. See here.

A side note here ie arriving 55 years after the year when I first arrived Durban at the age of 5 as father was 3rd officer onboard mv Thyra Torm.

I hope you will enjoy this PCW travel appetizer and I shall be publishing the current trip travel report in 3 parts:

• 9th of May
• 16th of May
• 23rd of May

Resuming ‘normal’ PCW program on 30/5 with interviews, trade intel, and acclaimed editorials as you have become used to.

Until then I shall continue my onward journey here with landfall in Japan on/about 3rd of May.

Also please kindly note where you have the chance to meet the editor of PCW so if you wish to have an interview or place a banner ad in our sought after publication then contact me:
