I especially enjoyed the fact that you can get onto the Matthew, and walk the lengths of it's decks. If you are lucky, you may get into the hold.
A lovely way to celebrate a birthday, a trip on The Matthew, with a fish & Chip supper. The staff were chatty and gave us imformation about the boat.
A view of the discomfort people put up with to explore the world. Only backpackers would put up with this nowadays we are really spoilt but are not aware of the comfort we travel in even if we complain. A short trip on the Matthew would put things into perspective.
