Cruise Diary: On the Rio

Dutch TV host and adventure seeker Charlotte Squarcy is on board for part of Amsterdam’s Grand World Voyage, and she sent in another post. Enjoy!

Courtesy of the West Fries Museum in Hoorn, Holland, I share with you an enlargement of an ancient Dutch map of our journey. I had presented a full world’s reproduction to Captain Mercer in fact, on our voyage last spring across the Atlantic. I hope that this shows up well enough to note Buenos Aires to the east of the river’s mouth and a Hoorn Island to the far left of the sailing vessel most left. Can’t wait to ask the navigator about which islands those are known as today!
