Travel With Me

Patrick Hill

Patrick, a Londoner, grew up through the blitz, was evacuated, bombed out, did two years mandatory army service in the English-occupied area of Germany, became a professional engineer, married a super girl, immigrated to Canada, Australia and finally settled in beautiful Vancouver. They learnt to sail in local waters, built a 42ft. boat in their garden in under a remarkable three years and, with their two children, sailed 15,000 miles offshore to exotic islands in the south seas and glaciated waters in Alaska. They also sailed in Europe, Bahamas and other places. He often worked in over thirty countries in south American, southeast Asia and other places - he never knew where to next.
He was always looking for the next challenge, the next environment and definitely took advantage of any possible trip, often with his wife. He did not like wasting time. After thirty-five years in Canada, he found out of the blue that he was attached through his children to another family in England. Life was so interesting that they never knew what was coming over the horizon next, be it through work or their social life with many friends.
His adventures and humour will delight you.

I have given many talks to libraries, clubs, two cruise ships and the Planetarium, and have sailed our beautiful west coast for forty years, Turkey, Greece, the Caribbean, across the USA, the Bahamas, Alaska and Southeast Asia. I am a retired civil engineer and business director in thirty-five countries. I owned nine sailboats, one of which my wife and I built from scratch in a remarkable three years in our garden and then sailed to the South Seas and Alaska.
Occasionally, it is good to sit back and dream of faraway places!
