French Adventurer In His 70s Crosses Atlantic In A Barrel Print

Hey, senior roamer: This should give us some ideas about our next travel venture! He just arrived from Europe to the Caribbean after spending over four months sailing alone in a home-built floating container shaped like a big barrel. In addition to canned goods and liquids, he caught fish to enhance his meals.

Of course, he’ll write a book about his experience, but the title The Old Man And The Sea is already taken. Does your admiration for this septuagenarian sailor result in action plans? What about a luxury Atlantic cruise, floating along the Danube or Shanghai excursion? Check with your travel agent and internet for attractive offers designed for seagoing seniors.
