To be fair, right from the beginning and throughout the planning, we knew that this would be the high risk point, with zero option of mitigation.
We chose the only available sea crossing for us to travel with the car. The alternative would have been to ship the car in a container and probably for us to fly.
So the low points were probably:
- Being stranded in Southern Italy for two weeks and not knowing if we were ever going to get sea passage to Cyprus
- Arriving at the ship in Salerno to be told by the Chief Mate that the ship had no record of our passage
Well, of course, we encouraged the ship to check with their head-office (which they could not do because it was Sunday and the key staff were on the beach), so the only solution for them was to take us anyway…
Overall, the trip was a great success and a few low points are to be expected…
