At sea ... Crete to Malta

What to do with a day at sea? Sleep late of course. Enjoy a leisurely breakfast in the dining room instead of the Lido Deck (self serve). Take a quick stop in the WiFi area to Blog, Facebook, and check emails. However, the system is overloaded and slow so I might give up and try later - not a quick stop at all.

I have read books one and two of the Millenium Trilogy since I left home. I could not bring book three with me because it was not on sale in the USA until May 10, 2010. However, a passenger on board, Richard a lawyer from South Carolina, has book three of the trilogy, "The Girl who Kicked the Hornets' Nest", and has offered to lend it to me. So, I am a happy sailor today. I can now follow Lisbeth Salander and find out what Stieg Larsson had in store for her. Richard is a character himself, he has been on board the M/V Discovery since it left Barcelona that is about five/six months. When Richard departs ship in Iceland he will have been aboard for nine months ... the person with the longest continuous journey, not the most cruises.
