Cargo ship travel delivers a unique experience you won’t enjoy on a passenger cruise. Freight travel involves slipping into port for only the time required to exchange one load for another. Then it’s back to sea en route to their next — sometimes exotic — destination. Here are tips for booking a trip on a freighter ship.
I’ve got some downhill driving tips for you that I learned firsthand while driving through the hilly Smoky Mountains recently.
