Location: Bangkok, Thailand
Our 40 days have come to a close today, sadly. It is so surreal to be saying goodbye and leaving Argo behind. We have been avoiding the sad reality by keeping busy all morning with our monster boat appreciation day. We tried to return every bit of the love to Argo that she has given us on her maiden voyage. We scrubbed, polished and swept until Argo was spotless and even more beautiful than usual. In an hour we will depart for Bangkok for good. All in all, as the first crew of Argo, we have learned, loved, and lost a few dishes, and we will step off the boat stronger, smarter and better people. Argo will always stay in our hearts and minds and I hope she will continue to keep crews safe and happy on journeys to come.
