Dressed to the Nines

The uniforms have arrived!

Ideally, the first posting would have featured Chief Stewardess and El Capitano wearing them, but we couldn’t wait to share this news with you.

A big shout out to Christian, who is helping us ensure that we have the appropriate attire for our upcoming spring/summer voyages

The dreaded and/or loved Dunning-Kruger Effect Curve

In retrospect, it all makes sense. It most often does. With the advent of this new blog, we’re moving, consolidating, and retracing our steps from day one until now. It is even more clear to us that we are fueled by the energy of starting new projects, moving, and pushing ourselves beyond our immediate comfort zones…

As the rush from feeling the high of ‘peak stupid’ subsides, we find ourselves taking small steps from the Valley of Despair as we prepare for our first ‘real’ season with MS Cava.

Welcome to MS Cava.

We are on a mission. Not a mission from God, as in one of El Capitano’s all-time favorite movies, The Blues Brothers, but on a mission to free ourselves from habitual thinking and meaningless pseudo-activities. We know, that we are at risk of ending up as secluded, strange, and frowned-upon hermits/weirdos — but we’ll take that chance.

MS Cava is our project to spend time together in calmness as we — once retirement and funding allow — travel the inland waterways of Europe at a slow pace with the sole purpose of waking up new places, meeting new people, and experiencing the marvels of nature – and in doing so keeping Il Capitano busy ensuring the boat is in tip-top shape while Chief Stewardess can entertain, Wine and Dine you.

We are so much looking forward to that journey, and invite you to tag along.

All the best

Chief Stewardess and Il Capitano
