I'm a travel writer...sort of!

I submitted an article entitled, So You Want to Work on a Yacht?, to eZine.com and it was accepted. If you are one of the three regular lurkers on my blog then you'll recognize it as basically just an article I've posted on here. I'm just crossing over...to where I'm not sure. I am also listed as an expert author in the cruising and sailing category. Me? I'm just waiting for someone who actually knows what they're talking about to overtake me. Maybe the true experts are actually out doing something productive like cruising or sailing as compared to me just sitting here at my computer. Either way, it's out there for your viewing pleasure or displeasure...

Congrats! I really like your blog and podcast. I even bought that backpack you recommended. I was wondering, do you have to be a US citizen to work on a yacht?

thanks Chris and Julie!

Julie: How do you like the backpack? I met people from all over the world working on yachts, Hungary, Czech Republic, NZ, OZ, England, Wales, South AFrica, Costa Rica, Bulgaria. Most US flagged boats are required to have US citizens. Some boats explicitly say NO AMERICANS only Australians. Apparently, Austalians are easier to get along with!! So, no way, you can be from just about anywhere to work on boats!
