Twenty one years ago, we closed our businesses and set sail on our schooner, BlueTopaz. Long before we conceived of this chapter in our lives, we decided that we wanted to see the world - the world we dreamed about as children - a world before microwave ovens, satellite dishes and a McDonald’s on every corner. We wanted to be more than just tourists. Our objective was, in a some small way, to experience life in other cultures.
