Wonderful world.

It's a wonderful world we live in and borrow during our lifetime, enjoy it to the hilt despite any drawbacks and heartaches we have on the way.

I retired from an enjoyable occupation as an Aircraft Maintenance Mechanic and Helicopter Pilot at 55 years old by preference. The pay and conditions were very good but there is more to life than work.

I am now 84 and blessed with good health and able to do what I want to do.

Soon after retirement I bought a 36ft Trimaran sailboat in Vancouver, Canada, I am a Canadian, and for the next 7 years traveled single handed the western coast of Canada, USA, Mexico, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Panama, through the Panama Canal, across the Caribbean and the east coast of the USA.

Since then I have travelled all over Europe and now have houseboat and traveled the Intra Coastal Waterway and now living in Gananoque, Ontario, waiting for summer to see what adventure awaits me. Would like to get in touch ( PenPal alechallam at gmail.com ) with anyone in the Houston/Galveston area to explore the sailing possibilities around the western Gulf.

Enjoy, Cheers everyone. Alexander Hallam. (Future PenPal)

It is a wonderful world. we explored it after retirement, just above the level of backpackers for my husband spoke eight languages.

We also traveled to all parts of Canada and in the south took along a tiny sailboat to sail in every province but Newfoundland.
