We have started to relax!

Time is passing by very fast. After four days at sea we feel like home on our ship MV FRAM. The weather is wonderful. The wind is blowing more or less in a gentle breeze and the temperatures reach around 9am already 27 degree Celsius. Just the right conditions to sit outside in the sun only dreaming or relaxing with a nice book.

But we have a little program on board too. We had a first lecture about seabirds and we met the Navigation Officer Clyde on the bridge. We enjoyed his talk and we are happy that we can come back during the trip to get more information.

In the evenings we had the famous BBQs again. Here already a big thank you to the crew. They are working hard during the day but they have always a big smile for us.

The evenings we spent together with the crew in the bar on deck 7. There was Karaoke singing and on Saturday evening we had a “Disco Night”. It was nice to see how the crew enjoys the free evenings. We ourselves need perhaps a little bit longer tom participate really. But it is already fun to watch only.

As everybody from us is not used to so much fresh air most of us go to bed early. But this is also part of our relaxing program.
