And off they went. First it was Scotland, then Norway to gaze at the Midnight Sun, and back down through the Shetland Islands, to O'Connor's hometown of Ballycastle, Ireland. The sights, the people, and everything else about the journey was amazing. The learning curve, admittedly, was steep, but the pair met every challenge, and as they did, their collective confidence grew. The travels continued, culminating in a magical cruise down the Bay of Biscay, a piece of water they'd entered with trepidation.
