From the summer of 2010 to summer 2012 we sailed from Sweden to Australia.
Through the Kiel Canal and the English Channel. Over the bay of Biscay along the Portuguese coast to Africa. From Agadir to the Canary Islands. South to Cape Verde and over the Atlantic Ocean to Martinique. South across the Caribbean to South America’s top and Trinidad. Over the Caribbean sea to the Panama Canal heading south over the equator to Ecuador and the Galapagos, further 18 days over the pacific to French Polynesia. Passed through the Pacific Ocean past gorgeous islands like Tahiti, Tonga, Fiji, Vanuatu, New Caledonia and eventually Australia. Although the trip took almost two years, it feels like the earth is smaller than before.
It is absolutely amazing that you can put yourself in a slow sailing boat and get to the other side of the earth.
Many can not imagine doing a similar trip, or even understand why you do it. The questions have been many. Why did you not fly? Were you ever afraid? were you involved in any storm? Was it not boring?
The goal of the journey is the journey and can not be exchanged by any flight. Expose our selves to risks we do daily, but to expose our selves for what we cant control such as weather, can sometimes be exhausting, but we ware rarely afraid. In two years, we had no more than one really bad weather outside Niue in the Pacific, where we thought we would get rest after a number of days of sailing, but had to continue to Tonga additional number of days away.Then we sometimes dident know what course we steered. Strong winds and fatigue got to the question, if this was the meaning of life. To arrive at the Tonga archipelago and sail beside the whales that were as long as the boat made the trip was worth every minute. Now safe back home with everyday life again and questioning, Would we do this again?
The answear is absolutely!
