Cruising aboard the Lyubov Orlova – a Russian class ship – in Canada’s high arctic waters. Equiped with Zodiacs and a stellar crew, it was a real pleasure crusising aboard this ship. Yet, for the record, my body never got use to the rocking motion of the open seas. So, if I ever set sail again I’ll be sure to bring some high powered meds to avoid sea sickness and keep my food down…LOL
