Introducing Gerrit Blankestein, {English pronunciation is... Garrit}

A fellow passenger of the November 1968 voyage aboard the the RHMS ELLINIS which was headed north to Europe from Australia via the Pacific Ocean

Garrit has kindly submitted some photos of that voyage, and some additional content for this page. The spooky thing is... that a couple of his photos are almost identical to the ones that the ships Photographer took of my circle of friends. Gariit is the younger brother of one of the girls in my black & white photos.

Garrit lives in the Netherlands these days,

Please take the time to read his short story about the events aboard the RHMS ELLINIS and about his present life in the Netherlands.
