"The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in
its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

May 10 – A Yearning

“'Fernweh', a German word that means basically the opposite of homesickness (Heimweh): when you feel like you have to leave your familiar surroundings to discover new places. It is the need for distance, the wish to experience something far away from home, the urge to escape from your everyday life by traveling."

It’s definitely a great word to describe the feeling most cruisers have...it’s what draws us to the cruising life. It’s the need to travel, explore new places, meet new people, see new sights, tastes new foods and experience new adventures. The only cure for this is to untie the lines and sail off into the sunset.
