Ahoy there! I’m Malcolm McCaster and I am a former history teacher now sailing the world in my retirement with my beautiful wife Julie. After I retired I decided to buy a second-hand boat and with my grandchildren and son we painted and boat new facets to put onto it and all my family put their own personal touches into the paintwork of the boat meaning that wherever we traveled in the world we would be taking them with us.
This has always been a massive dream of mine and when I told my granddaughter that I wanted to write down all my travels she suggested starting this blog to give people a little guide of how they could also travel the world in a similar way to my me and my wife. We have always been lucky enough to travel throughout most of our lives and were able to take our children and grandchildren away to so many amazing places all across the world, but now we want to travel the seas in our little (not so little) boat.
I think travelling has always been in my blood when my parents immigrated from Ireland to the Cotswolds when I was a very young boy. I still have great memories from my time in Ireland so I thought well why not make more all around the globe. One of mine and Julie’s favourite locations has always been Eygpt, because of the gorgeous food, heat, and architecture and that sense of excitement! You feel a little bit like Indiana Jones when you travel to these exotic places and I’ve had some tremendous memories experiences them too!
So that’s part of my story, you should now read my blog and start exploring the world too.
