    Yes. Slightly embarrassing for the poor girl.

    I think its very funny...

    Local radio here started saying she was run into by the cargo ship... I think she must have been the one doing the running into...

    I fail to see the logic of the parent/s of sending a 16 year old girl off on a solo trip around the world, stopping in developed countries, nevermind being exposed to the possibility of having to detour to the closest port which may be very remote and dangerous.

    I hope she tries again.

    Minor setback and definitely not an "epic fail".

    Its amazing what she is trying to accomplish. Good on her

    Agree 100%
    She wasn't injured, trip is still on.... so minor setback.

    A small (or rather large) wake-up call, to look at every possible thing that can happen. And to have systems to deal with it.
