I definitely know what it's like to be bored out of my mind at sea. I was on an 8 month MEU (Marine Expeditionary Unit) in 2018. Worst part for me was definitely spending 45 days off the coast of Djibouti. Maximum humidity and +100°F temperatures while doing manual labor was not a good time. We had zero internet access and cramped living quarters to boot.

My questions to you are: How are you keeping sane? What are the best and worst ports you've stopped at? What is your favorite thing you've seen in the open ocean? (i.e. bioluminescence at night, a school of flying fish, etc.)
