Let's discuss 'Voyages', 2020 WSD theme! 

It was chosen as more specific than just a journey - every story has or is a journey, so that's not really a theme. The sense of 'Voyage' is a LONG journey made mostly NOT by LAND. This comes from its classical Latin root which meant 'provisions for a journey' - therefore a long journey where you had to be self-sufficient in food. So a voyage takes you across the Boundless, away from civilization, supplies, and the Known. A voyage is usually made by ship, for a mission of exploration and discovery, or trade. So what are the great sources of voyage stories that spring to mind?
