I Am Impressed

Heave, ho, heave, ho.  I was pulling on a rope with about 15 other people, trying to raise a sail on a British Navy schooner.  It was June 1814, and we were about to engage in the Battle of St. 643 more words

Day Four Tall Ships

An exciting couple of events kicked off Day Four. Not only was there an Omiston Bushfield Academy vs. The Voyager Academy row boat race, but we were also given the opportunity to climb to the top of the mast – which was brilliant by the way! 163 more words

Dad Rocks! An interview with Snævar Njáll Albertsson at 2000 Trees

This past weekend, I decided to leave behind the rainy streets of Manchester to go and get pissed up on whiskey in a field and bust out flying head scissors with my pal in front of a crowd full of people in a big tent down in Cheltenham. 1,453 more words

Travel

Diane reblogged this on confessions of a gypsy girl and commented:

What are your traveling insecurities ?   I have  few.  When I travelled to Russia in 1992,  it was losing my passport and visa (which was on a separate piece of paper at the time), and not being able to leave the country.    I also get a little afraid of getting lost, but I have learned that getting lost brings its own set of joys. I got lost in Dublin, and heard street buskers, had coffee in a shop I would not have found ordinarily, and got an impromptu tour of Trinity College, and accidentally wandered into the office of the foremost Irish poets Brendan Kennelly.   I got lost in the Shetland Islands (ok, they're only so big, so eventually you're going to find your way back) and got a nice tour of the islands making up the Shetland chain.   I participated in Up Helly Aa, Shetland's biggest cultural event. I saw the Shetland Folk Festival that year.  I met people.  I found my way back.  And it was okay.

Tall Ships Have Arrived on Buffalo's Waterfront!!

Friday night Greg and I went down to the Buffalo Waterfront to see the Tall Ships that have come into town. We have a busy weekend so we might not have a chance to get back there for a tour – but it was wonderful to see them! 214 more words

Tall Ships: A Summary

So after finishing some of my other film projects, I made a really short film that summarized the Tall Ship trip. The music was a particular favourite of the Voyager Crew and so it would have been a crime not to use it!
