Day and night, day and night, wind and sea, sun and clouds. A living universe, a beating heart in an almost endless sea.
We found a secret time loop, where you’re woken up with songs, and bananas grow in the rigging. In our world there is no war, and we grow young together. Our companions for the journey are playful dolphins and oh so stupid flying fish. They fly into the galley or crash into the sails and they are the bringers of laughter.
It’s been 12 days since our last port of call, La Palma, the island of volcanic madness. I took a bit of fire from there with me, and 500 avocados.

-don’t sleep too much
-dance every day
-let the wind blow on your bare skin
-laugh until your face hurts
See you on the other side

Das habe ich mich bei Reiseantritt in der Karibik gefragt, das frage ich mich auch heute noch, eineinhalb Monate später. Es erwarten mich viele Herausforderungen und eintönige Stunden. Immer gleiche Tage mit den immergleichen Abläufen und Routinen, die doch jeder […]
