Life Far Away from Land

As some of you know I used to work on board cruise line ships from 2012 – 2014. Altogether, I did 4 contracts for 2 different companies and before the end of the 4th contract I gave in my resignation and disembarked in Dubrovnik in Croatia. During those days I used to write a blog about my experience and life in the white metal box, however, that blog was removed and my posts were collected in the book I haven’t published yet.

New Zealand, IPM ( In Port Manning)

Today, almost 8 years later I still think that this experience was the highlight of my twenties and it changed my life in so many different ways. I have become more self-confident, self-aware and resilient person. I learned what means “hard work” and how to save money. I have sailed half of the Earth and improved my English which helped me to move to UAE later on. Moreover, I have met so many different people and finally I have met my husband on board.

Greece, Mykonos

In the next post I will be sharing the steps that you need to take to embark yourself on this difficult, but rewarding journey. The ship has also changed lives of many of my friends who are sailing even today.
