Yay we have finally left Odessa and are sailing blissfully across the sunny seas to Georgia. I thought I heard some of the engines start up during the night but wasn't sure so we were pleasantly surprised when we woke this morning to see not the dock but open seas. We now have two, possibly three, glorious days ahead of us of doing absolutely nothing bar sleeping in, watching movies and/or Californication, catching up on blog writing and chilling out with the truckers and our new Dutch and German friends.

Second day at sea and I feel I have learnt a few things:

1. Don't spend all your money before getting on the boat as its one place Mastercard isn't accepted (or any other card for that matter!)
2. Bring lots of water.
3. Make sure said water is not sparkling.
4. Don't question the non descript meat for dinner.
5. Uno and 70% vodka is not a good combination.
6. Hangovers on sparkling water is not ideal.
7. Georgians are quite possibly the best dressed truckers I've seen - jeans, shoes and collared shirts. Certainly beats the Australian stubbies, wife-beater and double pluggers!
8. Writers block does exist.
