Guy Documents His 17-Day Journey Aboard Cargo Ship From Europe To Miami

Old timey tales of the sea often included stories of sailors who stowed away aboard ships in order to escape their problems and score free passage to another country, often with dire yet action packed consequences.

But adventurer Tal Oran, aka "The Travelling Clatt", didn't need to smuggle himself aboard this cargo ship or fight the crew to stay aboard- he just had to pay about $900 and submit himself to the solitude for a 17-day cargo "cruise"

Tal began his bizarre journey in Portugal and rode all the way to Miami, Florida, recording the whole thing so people can see what the daily life of a cargo sailor looks like.

Pack your bags, step out of your comfort zone, and take a trip. You'll thank me later

There is no such thing as a cargo sailor, they are called merchant mariners. Having been one all my life (right up until 2 years ago) and sailed on many U.S. flag ships I think it is amazing to see a brand new shiny ship like this. I can tell you that I never had a ship with a sauna or hot tub, most didn't even have gyms. My rooms were usually about the size of his bed, with a twin bed and filthy (not from me). The only ones who had rooms like that were the Captains. These guys have it made now!

What a lovely story. I admire everyone who has the courage to do that. One should always push themselves to the highest limits. I pretty much believe that if you intentionally do something you are afraid of/ unsure about, as often as you can, you tend to expand your horizons and abilities to achieve more in life.
