LIVING OUR DREAM

“We clear the harbour and the wind catches her sails and my beautiful ship leans over ever so gracefully, and her elegant bow cuts cleanly into the increasing chop of the waves. I take a deep breath and my chest expands and my heart starts thumping so strongly I fear the others might see it beat through the cloth of my jacket. I face the wind and my lips peel back from my teeth in a grin of pure joy.”

 L.A. MeyerUnder the Jolly Roger

“Napustili smo luku vjetrom punim jedrima dok se moj predivan brod graciozno naginje i svojim pramcem elegantno reže i usitnjava valove.  Duboko udahnem i dok se moje grudi šire moje srce udara tako jako da se bojim da će i drugi vidjeti njegove otkucaje kroz moju jaknu.  Okrenem se licem u vjetar, opustim usne od ugriza zubi i pretvorim ih u osmijeh čiste radosti.”

    • Hi Andy, nice to hear from you. We are very well, just crossed Atlantic. We sailed safely in Marina
      Rodney Bay this morning at 01.20. and so happy and proud on everything we’ve done up now. It wasn’t
      easy. Atlantic is really huge sea area full of awe and gives you a chance to get in through the good and bad that it strengthen and life means. We will enjoy Christmas and New Year time here then in the first half of January 2016 continue our Adventure through the Panama Cannel toward Galapagos to Australia. The all trip is much more then we expected it would be so we really enjoy it. New post will come soon, hope the internet will be ok, we usually struggle with.

      Thanks you follow us, it means a lot to us.

      Kind regards

        Hi Peter & Jasmine,

        What an achievement!
        We’ve loved following your adventures and are happy that you have crossed the Atlantic and are safe and well. We look forward to hearing more of your adventures when you arrive back in Australia next year.
        We wish you a Merry Christmas and know you will have a wonderful time with Marika & Peter arriving for Christmas and New Year.

        Safe Sailing and Best Wishes for the rest of the trip.
        Merry Christmas

      • Hi Jan & Peter,

        Nice to hear from you and thanks very much for Christmas greetings. Atlantic is a vast expanse of water, power full of awe. Only when you can meet with him feel it as much as we are small and lightweight, simply turned into a plastic toy that the child is looking forward to when taking a bath. High waves, which were at the stern rose up to the solar panels, gusts of wind up to 40 Beaufort, fortunately short-lived and all the problems that we deal in these conditions, only made us stronger and gave strength to continue. Recognizing the risk and value of this trip I can only say that Peter and I are very proud of this great success and that is why we greatly appreciate for wonderful support of both of you that means a lot to us.

        We look forward to meeting with Pedja and Marika and can not wait to hug them and share happy moments with them. The time to their arrival we used to prepare the ship for further. Christmas and New Year we plan to wait at Martinique, an island full of content for enjoyment, which we intend to sail around in full during their stay. After they left we’ll devote to preparing ourselves to continue our journey. Rodney Bay Marina will leave 09 January 2016 and set sail for Columbia, where we will stay for five days and then proceed to the islands of San Blass and Colon. Crossing the Panama will last nearly a month after which we will be faced with a larger bite, the Pacific, for which Peter and I feel more than willing.

        The new post is being prepared but I’m not sure when it’ll be publish due to major problems with the Internet.

        In the end, I take the opportunity to wish you, from our hearts, all the best for the Christmas and New Year with lots of love and happiness.

        It is possible for us to meet you and anywhere else during our trip, if you wish to experience the Pacific Islands.
