Mr. Chatterjee/Ms. Ghosh,
I am interested in crossing the pacific by ship (not a cruise ship!), and I have been searching the internet trying to find a way, and now I have found someone who has done it. Who did you have to contact to purchase tickets for the crossing? Did you need connection to purchase your tickets? I am very curious. I would appreciate an email back.
I suggest that you keep track of your many modes of travel and the approximate travel distances for each: Freighter, train, ferry, canoe, bicycle, bullock cart, howdah, car, bus, motor and bicycle rickshaw, funicular, walking, subway, (no wheelchairs please), etc. etc.
This would be interesting data for people interested in non-air travel and the adventures that ensue when you slow down, look around, and interact with your surroundings.
We booked our tickets through
I sent you an e-mail with more details. Best. barnali
Tim--Thanks for the great suggestion! We will work on getting mileages for our various trips.
Hi Barnali, hi Arinvan, I'm following your trip around the world and learning so much!
I hope you'll come to Italy at one point: let me know!
Greetings and happy New Year!

Wow! I can't believe you left nearly 6 months ago! I hope the trip is everything you wanted and more. It sounds like you (and your readers) are learning so much. Miss you, but am so inspired. Continued safe travels and bountiful adventures!
Just come across your blog for the first time and love it. Always good to come across another flightless traveller. You might be interested in my site http://www.flightlesstravel.com/.
Hope you settle into home life, it took us a while but we now really appreciate home life after spending months and months on the road.
I am pleased to find your site and respectful of your no fly commitment. I became aware of the various health issues associated with aviation particularly for those on the ground. Over the past two years my home in Southeastern Kentucky has been overwhelmed with an assault of aviation noise and pollution.
