We were in Singapore when I was a child. When I was ten years old my father took me and siblings to India. I remember our voyage by a steam ship SS Rajula to Madras (now Chennai). The year was 1958. At that time only the most rich could afford air travel. The voyage took nine days. Though I was only ten years then, I have some very vivid memories of that journy. The ship was over crowded. The sea was calm, splendid. At one stage the ship was going through a canal like area. I expressed my exclamation and my father told me that it was the Malaka strait. I will never forget the breez that caused because of the cruising of the ship, and the splendidness of the sea. Now I feel it like a dream. Ok friends. Now what is your experience with sea voyages? Ever travelled by a ship? Can you explain your experience if any? Thank you.

Unfortunately I have not had the pleasure of a sea voyage. Someday I would like to take a cruise and travel by ship. I think that it would be fun!

That's a great memory and something to remember. I have never travelled by sea and I have nothing to share. You know what? You're my best Mylot friend in terms of discussions and response. Most especially response. Thanks and have a nice day.

Your response made me very happy. I like your discussions very much. That's the reason for me to make a friend request to you and you generously accepted it. I feel very comfortable with my myLot friends. Thank you very much for the response.

That sounds like a lovely family trip! Glorious! I have no sea voyage like that but we have been between Rosslare, Ireland and on to Roscoff in France, as well as the port in Normandy, I can't think of it now. They were grand adventures for the children, as we had cabins and bunks to sleep in, and the ships have so much entertainment. I simply liked sitting on the deck and looking for marine life. I much prefer sailing to airflight!

Thank you for explaining your experience with sailing. Though we prefer sailing to airflight the time factor constrains us always to opt flying. Thank you for the response.

thats nice to hear. I have been sailing in ships as an officer for the past 16 years. I have seen almost all the seas in the world, and have seen it in any state that one can imagine and even beyond.

Sure. Sixteen years sailing means a lot of experience. But you could have detailed some memorable experience from that sixteen years for your friends in myLot. Still you are welcome to do that. Hope you will do that. Thank you for the response.
