Explorer and Author Robert Easton Shares His Covetous Round-the-World Trips on His Autobiography

Robert D. Easton wrote an awe-striking autobiography “Sailing Around the World in 300 Days: The Last World Cruise of the Yankee Trader.” This book recounts the countries he visited and the activities he did while carrying out his voyage with the moniker “Yankee Trader” in early 1979.

Together with 75 other passengers and 20 crew members, he was able to visit quite a number of places – 61 ports around the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans and the Caribbean. He also set foot to several cities like Singapore and Cape Town, to name a few. He also hopped innumerable islands and engaged in seemingly tireless exploration, fishing and scuba diving. To top the list off, he met islanders, savoured other cultures and watched irresistibly gorgeous sunsets. All these he completed in 300 days!

A 31,000 nautical mile expedition may sound fantastic but that length is highly indisputable. Robert’s mission to travel the world is truly praiseworthy and it will befit as a motivation to everyone in achieving their milestone.

Find out more of Robert’s excursions when he partakes the rest of his works at the Miami Book Fair International. This event will happen on November 17-24, 2019 at the Miami Dade College Wolfson Campus.

“Sailing Around the World in 300 Days: The Last World Cruise of the Yankee Trader” is available on Amazon and Barnes&Noble.
