Been there, done that a few years back crewing with an American circumnavigating family for a few months.

Me, a Brit who'd lived in Australia for 10 years, SWMBO a Zimbabwean who'd aslo lived in Aus for 10 years (but still thinks Harare is spelt S-a-l-i-s-b-u-r-y and calls traffic lights "Robots") and this mix of old and new monied Boston family.

Wow, while we all spoke English, did we get confused sometimes.
