With the threat of terrorism and piracy on the high seas, fewer sailors are completing a circumnavigation of the globe. Lois and Gunter Hofmann achieved their eight-year, 34,000 mile nautical triumph after turning 60 years old. In this second book of the nautical trilogy, "In Search of Adventure and Moments of Bliss," the couple faces adversity, but gains renewal and reward. Join them aboard their 43-foot Catana catamaran, Pacific Bliss, as they sail from San Diego to Australia, continuing their challenging but fulfilling circumnavigation. Lois Joy Hofmann's books offer something for everyone. From retirees and those dreaming about retirement, to boat owners, sailors, adventurers, travelers, geography buffs, and armchair sailors alike, Hofmann gives the reader "slice of life" moments through her compelling stories and captivating photos. Hofmann writes in a first-person style as if she is on location sending stories from the front in real time. Stories often begin with the date, location, and-for the nautical buffs-latitude and longitude.
