From 2012 to 2014 the Dutch Tall Ships made voyage around the world together. A voyage we will all never forget of course. Every once in a while we come across a photo or sometimes, which is even more fun, we hear from one our guests that joined on part of this great trip and that brings back all those memories. We were just thinking, if you would have to choose one memory what would you choose. For Gerben Nab, captain of the Oosterschelde it was the connection to history. You read and heard all about the history of places like Cape of Good Hope. And then you are there, with your own ship and realize how it must have been centuries ago for explorers like Bartolomeu Dias and later Jan van Riebeeck who established a re-supply camp for the Dutch East India Company. And now Cape Town is a huge city. Quite a difference compared to our visit to Tasmania, but again the connection to history was there. We were lucky enough to be able to land in a fjord on the west side of the island, as usually the ocean and wind makes it almost impossible to land on that side. We were the only ones there entering the deserted fjord. It was just us and nature and the realization how it must have been for Abel Tasman discovering Tasmania.
