Seaborne visitors from home

This weekend has been dominated by rain, reading, and time spent at home. Did some shorter escapes though, including a trip down to the port where I spotted the amazing three-master pictured below. What obviously caught my attention was the Swedish flag.


Unfortunately I was unable to reach the actual ship, but after coming home I decided to look up this beautiful M/S Gunilla from Öckerö – only to find out that it belongs to a Swedish high school on the west coast called Öckerö gymnasium. Basically, these kids get to spend a considerable amount of their high school years at sea, having lectures and classes on board, while visiting places such as Europe (obviously), South America, the Caribbean, and North America. How amazing is that?
