Ships Log

 

Andy and Nicky write a "ships log" as a record of their travels. The aim is to give an honest account of how their travels are progressing. It is sent out via email to people who have expressed an interest, and also posted on this website. They vary in frequency but on average are sent every 2-3 weeks. If you would like to be added to the list of people receiving the log via email please contact us.
