the Big Adventure


Staffan Wettre's grandchild looking at the photos
Today after dinner we went to the opening of the exhibition Det stora Äventyret (the Big Adventure) at the Maritime Museum. Photos, drawings, diary extracts and film clips recreates the journey that Staffan Wettre and Gunnar Stenström took in 1959 aboard a three masted topsail schooner, The Flying Clipper. Staffan and Gunnar were only 17-18 at the time and part of the crew.

Graphic designer Jonas Wettre, Staffan Wettre's son, published Flying Clipper Logbook in 2009 which I assume must have been the origin of the exhibition. It's an exquisite book. Find out more about the book at Shane Lavalette's journal.

It looks an intriguing and beautiful exhibition, and very much like a big adventure.

The corporate must define a travel policy which is applicable to and respected by travelers at all levels. This policy should be used to establish the standards which will help to track the improvement of business travel. It will eventually help to reduce the costs of the entire package. https://www.travel101.us
