I'm in Karlshamn, digesting after a good lunch with my wife Emma and little son, Teddy.

Looking out over the harbor, a ship on its way to St. Petersburg leaves the dock. I check the name of the ship on a website I found, MarineTraffic. There I can see tonnage, cargo, latest trip, current destination and much more.
