Back in 2007, a Blogger proposed to participate in an Internet Cruise. This idea was really great and had a lot of success.
When I tried to explain to a friend that I am doing an Internet Cruise, she was very confused.
I have to say that my friend has no idea of Internet, computer or whatsoever concerning the modern world today. Even a mobile or a remote control is a mystery to her.
I told her that we had started in Stockholm/Sweden, where this Blogger lived with an imaginary cruise ship and had sailed from Stockholm to France and then to Waterloo.
A ship she could imagine, but not a virtual one, and the fact that we criss-crossed through the whole world without any logic sailing from Germany to Hongkong and from there to Rome and to the States she couldn't understand. Why didn't we follow the normal way and follow the geographical order as normal humans, staying on one continent, visiting everything and then going to the next ? I said that doesn't matter if we go from America to Europe and back there and then again Europe and then Canada and then, and then ... my poor friend got dizzy and I started to fancy about all countries I would visit in the whole world, when she brought me back to my seat in the Chinese restaurant where we had our lunch and I gave up and changed the subject.
I have to say I learned a lot during this Internet Cruise and we even had parties on board, with hats and dresses and virtual food. We really all had a lot of fun !
and at the end of our Internet cruise, we had a ball on the ship !
