Once I have watched the two discs on my DVD, I eagerly want to express my gratitude to Francesco for letting me visit all the lovely places of his choice. He has aroused all my senses, I have enjoyed every single part of his story. Starting with Venice, the emotional story of him and his family make and Venice make his story even more valuable. Francesco is a person that you admire all through his voyage and although he wants to be a tough man I prefer him as he is, subtle and sentimental. My husband and I watched his story appreciating it twice. My husband is a sea man from Dubrovnik and so was my father, we are a family that love the sea and know what was our history, linked to all Francesco's visit on the Mediterranean. His Croatia is very good ( althoug I wished he showed more of Dubrovnik, but this is personal), his Greece is majestic, with the islands the history, the life of people past and today, the fantastic wedding with 1.500 guests including Francesco, his family waiting for him on an island in Greece and finally Istambul !
We liked his relation wish the crew, and we give them our compliments for the sailing and everything, since we sailed these waters, but not on the Black Swon, we have a small sailing boat of 13 meters and we do lots of sailing.
The Captain has certainly won all the hearts of ladies ! A very charming Italian man, typical Mediterranean, reminds me of my husband.
The Black Swan sailing boat is our of dreams, and we have the film now called Black Swan what a coincidence!
To Francesco, his crew, his team, the BBC all our compliments, with wishes for more !!! Vesna and Jadran Gamulin, from Dubrovnik _ Croatia.
