What struck us most about these experiences, beyond the colorful traditions and beautiful setting, was the generosity of the islanders'not just to their friends and neighbors, but to two boat people who just happened to sail to their shores. For nearly eight years, author Tina Olton and her husband, Steve Salmon, sailed around the world on their forty-foot ocean-going sailboat, Another Horizon. In that time, they traveled 45,000 miles; visited sixty-one countries; and crossed three oceans, countless seas, canals, lakes, and rivers. From Berkeley, California, the couple cast off their dock lines to head west through the Golden Gate. The whole world was before them'the ultimate traveler's dream. From the rich beauty of French Polynesia on an Easter Sunday to the whitewashed beaches of Greece, Tina and Steve embraced the world and its diversity. The voyage forced them to examine the limits of their determination, their ability to endure hardship, their tolerance for other people'regardless of their behavior or beliefs'and their good will toward each other. Tina and Steve soon realized that the journey would either change their lives'or bring them to their knees. For maps and photos, see www.alwaysanotherhorizon.com
