That is why your story about Peking' next-year-travel home for restauration has touched me so much. It's entirely appreciated, thank you. Would be nice to meet her there at docks for photo-shooting.. I hope the Blohm & Voss Docks are reachable for tourists somehow.

I am curious to see her there at the Blohm & Voss Docks which is just a one hour drive from my hometown of Bremen. The PEKING is one of a series of sailing ships called "Flying P Liners", their names all starting with the letter "P", built for the famous LAEISZ shipping company in Hamburg.
