A rough ride across the Mediterranean


We spent today at sea. It was a bumpy ride back to Palma de Mallorca, Spain. But an invitation to tour the bridge made us forget about our motion sickness for a little while.


The boys wanted to steer the Epic, but no insurance on Earth will cover a six-year-old.

Here’s all of us on the bridge with captain Sverre Sovdsnes.

The weather didn’t start to get really rough until later in the afternoon, so these are the “before” shots.

  1. just a heads up, if you or your family are having trouble with seasickness, ginger is good to alleviate it — whether it be ginger candy, ginger ale, or ginger from the sushi bar. hope this helps!

  2. I echo the comments on a good looking family. We had a similar experience trying to cross from  Italy to Spain last year. Eventually ended up diverting past Corsica to Monte Carlo. A bummer.
