Cargo vessel

I made a cargo container trip last november between Le Havre (France) and Hamburg (Germany). It was one of my dream to make that kind of trip on such a huge boat where the crew, its work, is more important that the passengers. I love the sea, and this trip is an alternative to usual boat cruise. This trip lasted 4 days instead of 2 day as we met the storm and the fog. I spent time speaking with the captain and other officers and members of the crew, looking at the colorful containers. Such and amazing landscape in the middle of the sea. Now would like to do it to join New-York.

Location: North Sea
