About Tom Morkin and Liz Tosoni
Both their respective employers had offered them their jobs back upon their return to Canada, and so they had work to fall back upon. Tom hails from London, Ontario, and before cruising he’d been a flight instructor, charter pilot, aircraft salesman, and finally Western Canada Sales Manager for the 3M Company in their Medical Division. Liz was a big city girl, born and raised in Toronto, far from any ocean, but with a love of travel and the outdoors. Prior to meeting Tom and sailing off into the sunset, she’d been an Air Canada flight attendant, nursery school teacher, a physical-education and English teacher, and an educational textbook representative with sales, marketing, and editorial responsibilities for Prentice Hall.
To make a long story short, they set off cruising, but missed that right turn and ended up in Samoa where they found teaching jobs. Here it is, 22 years later, and they're still cruising! During more than two decades, they've sailed to 31 countries, worked in six of them, and have a few tales to tell and tips to share -- their own and some gleaned from other veteran cruisers over the years. Come join the adventure as they cruise Turkey and the Med aboard their present boat, the 51-foot Feel Free, and share their extraordinary stories.
