Memmories of a sea voyage.

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.

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.

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!

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.
