It was over a year ago when I was cruising on this massive vessel. It was once a Russian research ship, now converted into a semi-luxury cruise for those who have wanted to travel to the Antarctic. What you are looking at was one of the most beautiful spots on the vessel. Sitting, standing in front with wind in you face, so strong it causes you to tear up. The direction controlled by the man in the blue cap behind you, as though a mystical force guiding your direction through rough waters. A testament and respect to those with decades of experience. An experience that is preceded by the passion to be on the ocean. One day, perhaps, the ocean, vessel and my eyes will meet once more.
