November 6, 2007-See You Later Bangkok

Living aboard in Singapore

The jolly crew of Wings has moved out of Bangkok and back aboard. Yes, that’s right; we’re full time cruisers living aboard our boat in Singapore now. Our work assignments in Bangkok are over for the time being and we’ve completed our move from Bangkok to Singapore. The apartment life in Bangkok was fun and we love Bangkok, but we are happy to be home. One good piece of luck was that we managed to sell all the household goods we bought for the apartment, (except some large pieces of art which got shipped to an unsuspecting family member, surprise!) Still we had 10 suitcases full of stuff and getting THAT aboard Wings was a challenge, but its all stowed now and we are shipshape and ready to go (plus, we have a big donation for the Salvation Army).

We’ll now spend a few weeks working on the boat and keeping the job search ticking over, then we’ll be off to Phuket Island, Thailand in late November.

Other than a few things we know we’ll do, our plans for the months ahead are not completely definite: we are looking for jobs and who knows if something will develop there, but we do know that we are going to sail in the King’s Cup sailing regatta in December, and our Granddaughter Candace is coming to visit over Christmas and New Year’s. During that time Wings will be based in Phuket.

After that, who knows? Maybe there will be more working in our future. If not, then certainly there will be more cruising. The historic ports along the Straits of Mallaca will be interesting and we want to visit them all. Plus the cruising around Phuket is supposed to be stunning, and we will have some fun doing that. Then there are the runs down to Langkawi for duty free supplies.

So now that we have some cruising back in the immediate future you get a cruising story from us a bit more often. And we’d love to hear from you, so please write to us and tell us about everything from home, we miss you all.
