It’s time to leave.

Port of Philadelphia, but definitely the wrong ship…(or maybe just the wrong century)

It is time again to move on. Today, I am boarding the ship for Europe. – Es ist Zeit zum Aufbrechen. Heute gehe ich an Bord für die Seefahrt nach Europa.

It feels strange to get on a ship so far from a coastline. Here is the Delaware River that will provide the waterway to take us to the North Atlantic. – Es fühlt sich komische an, im Landesinnern win grosses Schiff zu besteigen. Wir werden auf dem Delaware River bis zur Küste des Atlantischen Ozeans fahren.
