Round the World

Filed under: Travel — jasony @ 9:03 am

16 Year old Aussie Jessica Watson completes her 7 month solo around-the-world sailing voyage tonight at 10 pm when she sails into Sidney Harbor. Read more about it here. I’ve been following her daily blog updates for a few months now (it’s great to live in the future, no?) and it’s an inspiring story. There aren’t many firsts left in the world (or even seconds or thirds), so it’s wonderful to get to see someone make the news for a first that’s uplifting and hopeful. Her trip time isn’t very long on the face of it, but she’s sure changed more than just 7 months in the time she’s been gone.

Around the world solo in a sailboat at 16. Incredible.
