my year at sea

In December's The Atlantic, Christopher Buckley wrote a beautiful essay titled My Year at Sea, which explores the lure of travel by freighter. In addition, he speaks to the heart of why this mode of transportation is so special in our time and in part, why I remain so fascinated by it: "a freighter passage might just offer what our relentlessly connected age has made difficult, if not impossible: splendid isolation."
