Roast Pork Leg Boneless

What’s the best menu on a very rough sea?

Anything cooked inside the oven is safe on a bad weather. Deep-fat frying is a definite no-no!

The past few weeks was so safe and sound trading inside the Baltic sea, and then we suddenly got a call for Antwerp, Belgium. We load cargo at Nynäshamn, Sweden and set sail for a 4days voyage. And when we are only several hours away to pick-up our pilot, we got the weather we dont want to expect. So, yesterday was a bad day for all of us. We’ve been hit by high waves and force 8 winds head-on.

Well, thats Life Onboard  😦

One way to lighten-up your dizziness and to forget the puke thats been hanging just below your throat is to keep yourself busy. I always play nice music and wear my earphone, keep my body moving. So let’s groove to the beat of “Red Red Wine”  by the British reggae group UB40.
