Our fifth year of roaming around the world starts now! It was only supposed to be a one year trip. So it’s almost hard for us to believe that we’ve been traveling non-stop for the past four years now. Yet here we are in 2018, now 65 countries later, in […]
Roaming Around the World is in Savona, Italy.

After a month and a half at sea, on 2 ships, across 11 different countries, and 21 days in port, we have safely made it all the way from Hong Kong to Northern Italy!
This six-week voyage was by far the longest we’ve ever spent cruising and some have asked if we’ve tired of it. The short answer: no way! We’d go for another six weeks if we could!
Typically while traveling nonstop around the world, we’re undertaking long bus rides in cramped conditions, constantly packing & unpacking, schlepping luggage from one place to the next, sometimes staying in questionable rooms, discovering showers without hot water, spending countless hours determining how to get from point A-to-B, and continually running around town in search of a decent meal at an affordable price. It’s all part of the fun of long-term travel, but it can become taxing.
These repositioning cruises provide us a nice break from all of that, while still being able to enjoy the pleasures of travel. It’s amazing for us to have been transported one-third of the way around the world without having to pack, carry luggage, or research travel logistics. The included four-course Italian dinners each night aboard Costa gave us a consistently fantastic taste of Italy before we even arrived to the country. Our cozy stateroom became a reliably comfy “home” to retreat to each night.
And with the same passengers onboard for the past 28 days, we had the rare opportunity to make friendships that lasted more than a day. It's also been so interesting simply transitioning from one country to the next, all by sea. Yet overall, these six weeks of cruising just made travel so incredibly easy, which is a luxury we can really appreciate after 4+ years on the road.
Such lengthy cruise travel may not be for everyone; but to us, it feels like chicken soup for the long-term traveler’s soul. ☺️ ... See MoreSee Less
I really love that turn of phrase "chicken soup for the long-term traveller's soul" Here's wishing you guys plenty more "chicken soup."🍲
Hi guys! Sorry to annoy with a followup question from a previous chat. Which consolidator do you use for these repos cruises? Ive been making my way thru the sites i found on google but im finding them all oddly byzantine...complex, unclear etc. Maybe its just me, idk. Anyway i thought I'd go to the source of my inspiration and just ask which sites you've used for this. Anyway, have fun in italy!
And I’m dying to know the cost ...?
Excited to be able to share your journey through your posts...cant wait for pics from the stops along the way...and of course the travels through Italy.. :) Benvenuto in Italia
What sort of costs involved
If you can, visit Padua.
I love traveling and sometimes burdens are part of the adventure that makes it special. We have been on a couple long trips and I wish we were younger and richer to take more. Love reading about your adventure.
So should we add Costa to our list of cruise brands? 😃
I've often thought I'd love a year on ships going from place to place. I love your trip.
Be careful.... you might get used to cruising😜😜😜
I like the idea of this! It seems efficient. Do they give you enough time at each destination?
Wow! That sounds amazing!
So cool! I'm glad you made it safe.
Mi Chelle Chela Reyes Les Lie Steven Jones goal!
I love repositioning cruises, and we've done a few, but yours was amazing!
You guys make me smile almost every day - wow ! Siddharth Bajoria : Inspiration for you
