After the initial bad weather, us kids had a great time on board. It was like a huge holiday for us. We were in cabin 612 (i think), just above the waterline towards the end of the ship. My name then was Joep Groffen and there was 7 of us altogether. We left in elbourne and travelled to the Woodside camp where we stayed for 6 weeks before living in the Glenelg Hostel for 18 months. I was 11. my private email is firstname.lastname@example.org
. I have some photos that my late father took on the way.
