It's been just great meeting you all and thanks for being so kind to
us and the kids. And luckily we're only drunks - not alcoholics (they
have to go to meetings) - sorry for quoting you Jo! It's such a good one.
Fair winds and good luck
-The 'Steadfasters' Adrian, Gabi, Tristan and Benjamin s/v Steadfast
Everybody should break out and enjoy their own adventure. I am glad to
see such great determination to explore and venture into different realms.
Travel, love, learn, teach and live. Thank you: Jo, Stacy, Dave and Matti
for your hospitality, generosity, and willingness to keep me drunk day
and night. May life bring you good health and happiness.

It was a pleasant party before transferring boat to Panama city. It was
a pleasure meeting the friendly crew from Ladybug.Wish you all the wind
behind you, friendly locals wherever your voyage takes you, and safely
return home after a remarkable circumnavigation.

Another great adventure trip! Visiting Stacy is always a new adventure
in seeing and doing new things. I have been to several Islands, a rain
forest, ate awesome meals made with local ingredients, snorkeled, seen
many varieties of fish, sailed with the dolphins and made an overnight
passage. All this was possible with the Ladybug Adventures great crew!
Thanks millions for the wonderful adventure. PS forgot the great Mola
- Jann (Stacy's mom)
I enjoyed the company, the boat, the sailing and the food. Let's get together sometime.
-Pat ONeill (Panama Canal Pilot)
The Narcoleptic Spider
A spider has gone to sleep in my hair.
I can hear him snoring near my ear.
I think it's rude to wake him,
so I lie very still...waiting.
He's tired from using his silky tool.
My mother says I'll be late for school.

Simon m/v LadyM. Though Simon was busy with his responsibilities on LadyM, he managed to stop by Ladybug a couple times bearing gifts - cold sodas, ice, and good conversation.

Fue bien divertido! Mucho gusto en el Muelle de San Blas -- good song
to listen to by Maná
-Heather Wade ("Michelle" or "Micha")
Espero que su viaje vaya bién. Cuidado con los tiburónes! Disfruta sus
vidas locas. Buen Viaje!
-Kimberly Oliver (Chicago!)
Anelsia, Nilda and Rosibel. We looked at their molas and had coffee and lemon poppyseed cake with them.
To all my friends on the Ladybug -- some of the finest people that it's
been my pleasure to hang out (and of course, drink) with! Many thanks
for showing me the A.B.C.'s, it's been the best vacation EVVAHH
! Here's wishing you smooth sailing and a strong tail wind for the rest
of your voyage. Hopefully I'll be able to hook up with you again next
year on the other side of the globe.
Lotsa Love, John Dreger
Thank you so much for the nice boat trip. It was really fun!
I hope you will all learn your Dutch lessons, so you can one time order a beer in Holland. Just say : "Een biertje alsjeblieft! And if you want to know someone's name, just ask: "Hoe heet je?"
We wish you a very nice time on your boat to the other places you go
to. Andy maybe we'll se each other in a bar in Amsterdam, Utrecht or wherever.
We will look at your internet site very soon!
Thanks for everything!
