This used to appear on ontheroad.nicksellen.co.uk which was all about a bike tour I made around the UK in 2011/2012.
Off to the USA (by boat)12 January 2013
For the next 10 days I’ll be somewhere in the Atlantic on this boat – Independent Voyager.
Getting onto the boat was a little scary, it was pouring with rain and ports are full of massive machinery. It’s really not designed to be cyclist friendly (some of the roads I had to cycle on said no cars even).
The handrails on the side of those steps are extremely wobbly too, you can’t rely on them for much support and it’s a reasonable height once you reach the top.
My room for the trip. It’s functional and has a nice desk area (I’m sat typing at it now) which is way more proper than where I usually work (slumped on a sofa).
The view from my window, they’ll be unloading and then loading through the night ready for our departure at around 10am.
