Just in case you wonder why there are no posts from Thursday Island, it’s because we couldn’t stop there on our way to Darwin. The sea was a bit rough, so the tender boats could not safely ferry people to the island.
And plans for Bali and Shanghai have changed; we will have less time in each place. In the case of Bali, some weather/tidal issues will have us land late. In Shanghai, new security restrictions after the explosion in Tianjian mean that we have to stop at a foreign port in between stops in Shanghai and Tianjian, so we’ll lose a day in Shanghai.
So I guess travel plans on a ship are just as variable as anywhere else…
Glad you guys missed the cyclone in Fiji. Thinking of you both.
