This is not the first time that a Colin Browning has sailed to the southern half of the world. About 180 years ago, my great, great, great, great grandfather, Colin Arrott Browning sailed as a ship’s doctor from England to Australia helping the convicts on board. You can read his interesting account here.
I guess the lesson is that I should not complain about the length of the flight to Santiago. It took my ancestor 4 months to travel down to Australia on a cramped, probably smelly ship. I will definitely not be traveling like that!
