There’s something significant about crossing the Malacca Straits. Sort of like going thru the Panama Canal. It’s a big milestone and even though our half way point was up in the Philippines, this seems more real. It’s not just a number.
A lot of cruisers actually get stuck here. They end their sabbatical in Malaysia or Thailand after starting in Australia or the Caribbean. Same goes for the Pacific Ocean crossing. Lots of cruisers start in the Med and never make it past the Caribbean.
But we’re stoked. Stoked to be on the cusp of stepping foot into the Indian ocean. Just as crossing the Pacific, the experiences will be incredibly rich in those untrodden waters.
Hope this brings you a little bit of joy as the world spins around us.
