Off we go to the Baltic in August!

We'll sail on August 9th aboard the ms Ryndam from the white cliffs of Dover and head off to visit a string of fabulous northern cities, including Copenhagen, Stockholm, Helsinki, St. Petersburg, and Århus, taking along all the usual suspects and our naturalists and some excellent lecturers, and we'll have a mob sing on the afterdeck as we pull out of Dover, and late-night dances in the Crow's Nest and 7 a.m. choir practice (optional) and more storytelling and lectures about the Hanseatic League and the Revolution of 1917, and a cavalcade of music in the bars and lounges, as the watery world slips by and we take a two-week leave from our ordinary hectic lives. No texting. No email.
