世界一周 with Peace Boat

Now I'm back from the voyage of a lifetime, I can explain why this page has been quiet for some months. In August 2017, I joined a 10-strong team of volunteer language teachers aboard the Ocean Dream, a cruise ship chartered by the Japanese NGO, Peace Boat.

Alongside Peace Boat staff, volunteer interpreters of five different languages, and a thousand passengers, I set sail from Yokohama. We visited 23 ports in 19 countries, and had many memorable moments on board too. 

I look forward to sharing more about the places and people of Peace Boat's 95th Global Voyage, but for now, here's an article featured in the Irish Times about my work and life on the boat.
