With or Without the Whale is a memoir of the most amazing thing I’ll never do again: sail the world on a 180-foot tall ship with 42 strangers and an egomaniacal sea captain. We crossed three oceans and visited four continents between Fiji to Nova Scotia, while I lived among roaches and bedbugs, learned the language of gypsy heads and t’gallant halyards, and battled to earn a saltier nickname than Barbie. What began as a romanticized quest for beauty became a slow, monotonous, rage-fueled, lust-filled journey toward living a life less ordinary.
