  • About ackers888:

    I was on board the Sir Galahad when it got blown up in 1982 during the Falklands conflict. I was 19 years old at the time, and that moment changed my attititude to life. Life is too short and you should live it to the full. In my case for the sake of the 52 mates who lost their lives that day. In your case, whatever moves you... chill and enjoy this planet we have before it is ruined. Lois and I decided to travel a while ago, but last May she was sadly diagnosed with terminal cancer. So we bit the bullet and travelled anyway..our journey began 1 week after she had finished treatment. Lois passed away in February 2009, and I am now continuing on with the journey.
