My partner and I are using Strand Travel to embark upon a 25 day crossing using a Grimaldi freighter, the Grande Amburgo on 13 February 2014 to sail from Belgium to Montevideo, Uruguay.  We will then venture down to Ushuaia and take an 18 month trip up the Americas to Alaska.  What better way to sink into our trip and experience life at a slow pace for a change.  Please feel free to visit and perhaps follow our blog - many thanks, Lisa and Jason.
