The six days I spent there aroused the hidden desire to do something Id always wanted to do-work my way around the world. With Merchant Seaman papers, a passport, a duffel bag full of clothes and $125, I set sail from San Pedro, California, at the age of 26. My voyage ended three years later in Tucson, Arizona, $10 in my pocket, a backpack full of clothes, and 2000 miles short of circumnavigating the world
