Everything everywhere
Latitude: 6° 32.6948’ S Longitude: 11° 50.4849’ E At a certain level, a ship has to be self sustaining. When you are at sea, you can’t run to the home depot to fix a problem. You need the tools and talent on board to solve whatever problems might arise. I have been incredibly impressed with the problem solving abilities of the crew on the Expedition. Case 1: If you are a MacBook owner, you are probably aware of the problem with the power cords.

skinny backpacker I've spent much of the past two years moving in and out of Myanmar / Burma to see what makes the country tick.

It was one of my favourite places to stay because at night the whole place was over-run by geckos!
