Exit Strategy: Moving on from Australia

Exit Strategy…besides being the name of our friends Dave & Jean’s boat, an exit strategy is always a good thing to have. Totem has one and we’re about to put it into action: we are soon to be on the move! After 20 months in Australia, it’s time to start putting serious miles under the keel once more. It’s time to find water that looks like this again:

Tropical island paradise
The Cook Islands…in 2010. We’re ready.

As much as a privilege as it’s been to get to know Australia…we miss the adventure of new places to explore, new people to  meet, new culture and languages to learn.

Plans are still very fuzzy, and as always in the cruising world- they are written in the sand at low tide! We expect to remain in Brisbane for a few more weeks, then work start north. At the moment we’re leaning towards exploring a few stops on the outside of the Great Barrier Reef and then on to Papua New Guinea…but there’s a chance we’ll change our minds and decide to go over the top towards Darwin and check out the Kimberleys.


Watch this space.

    Yeah – glad to hear that Totem will be cruising again! Looking forward to following your adventures and meeting up with you again somewhere. This time next year, we should be in the Cooks on the way to Figi. We are ready too!
