Here you can follow my journey around the world. It may be a while between every update since I do not have an internet connection at the sailboat.

I will try to publish everything that happens, so just keep on visiting this page.

The Atlantic crossing
Place:
Bridgetown, Barbados
Date: December 23. 2006

Here is the travelogue from our first big ocean crossing. Even though we were very lonely out at the huge ocean, there were constantly things happening that made the days joyfully. The boat kept a solid speed as we were surrounded by animals all the time. Read more


The first long distance journey
Place:
Graciosa, Kanari°yene
Date: October 8. 2006

Our first long distance journey was very quiet so we had to be very patient. We still had some exciting nights with tuna nets and encounters with fishermen. Essaouira in Morocco was very interesting, and we experienced it during the Ramadan. The last leg out to the Canary Islands went really fast. Read more


The stay in Gibraltar
Place:
Gibraltar
Date: September 25. 2006

It has become a long stay in Gibraltar and La Linea in Spain. A lot of upgrades and maintenance have been done. On September the 19th Vidar arrived, so now we are two persons onboard. When we set sail again, we will set the course for Morocco and then towards the Canary Islands. Read more


The arrival at the Mediterranean Sea
Place:
Roses, Spain
Date: August 2. 2006

Now the speed has increased as the flow now is parallel. I reach the second biggest town in France with temperatures at 38 degrees. There I get a big surprise when I get crewmembers signing on! I arrive at the Mediterranean Sea and yet another country is conquered. Read more


Tour de France
Place:
Gergy, France
Date: July 15. 2006

Now I am far away from oceans, but the journey and the adventures are still great. I have been visiting Belgium and am now at the canal system in France. Along the canals are many great old cities and beautiful landscape. I have been sweating at times, because of the heat and the works in the locks. Read more


Preparations before the departure
Place:
Kopervik, Norway
Date: April 7. 2006

Just under a month left until I set sail. All the equipment is bought in, but I am missing some installation work and the big job of finding space for everything. The boat is put a shore and will be there for some weeks, and I hope the work outside will be finished some days before the departure. Read more
