Continuing my report of the 4th Unlock the Past Cruise, and Sunday the 9th of February was day six of the cruise. This was another sea day, so there was a heap of talks scheduled. Looking at my notebook, I see that I highlighted nine talks to go to, but I actually only ended up going to four. One thing about sea days, and getting up ealyish is seeing the beautiful sunrises, the like one at the top of this post. That was taken from my cabin before heading up for breakfast.
Friday was another sea day. We’d left Melbourne the previous evening, and headed to Adelaide.
Sea days tend to be packed seminar days, and this one was no exception, with 25 talks scheduled throughout the whole day, many going simultaneously. The tough thing I found was making the decision on this talks to attend, but it was nice to have a choice of so many topics.
Going back over my notes, I see I went to five talks for the day, covering a range of topics.
I know the cruise over already. But so much happened that I want to do each day justice. So bear with me while I try and remember, and record the happenings of each day.
Day 3 of the cruise, and it was up early for myself and the rest of the Unlock the Past team, as we docked at Melbourne at 8.00am. So the plan was to get off quickly, and get a taxi (or two) and head on over to the Celtic Club in Melbourne where our seminar for the day was being held, and started at 10.00am.
But as we all know, reality has its own ideas of what’s to happen, and it managed to throw all of our plans out the window.
Day two of the cruise was the first day of seminars. And as it was a ‘sea day’ it was a full-on day, and I made the most of it, going to a bunch of talks.
Rather than just tell you a list of the talks I went to, I’ll try to give you some useful tid-bits that I wrote in my notes from each of them.
