IN RELATED NEWS: the ANL BINDAREE is unexpectedly moored in California, and after a few back and forths with the shipping company in Hamburg, I’m set to leave Auckland on May 12 aboard the SPIRIT OF SHANGHAI. I’ll disembark in Sydney and take the train to Melbourne (and Montsalvat!).
Cargo ship contracts are a fascinating read.
According to this trusty page, my cargo ship just passed through the Panama Canal.
I think the SPIRIT OF SHANGHAI sounds quite convincingly like a ship that will continue to float for the duration of my journey to OZ, am I right?
This #travelingpoet is off to see the wizard.
tl;dr AUSTRALIA, I’M COMING FOR YOUR STORIES.
