I'm a young woman traveling with my dear friend, Anne. We are both in the middle of our tweenties, taking some years off to travel and explore the world surrounding us.
Growing up along the seaside of Denmark, I have a everlasting love to the oceans and as well the life in it. I used to sail very little as a child, but at that point I wanted to use all my time on swimming, and ended up playing waterpolo on a high level. In many ways have the water always feelt more appealing to me, a place of happiness. It makes me feel alive and calm. Here later in life, I and Anne, as well, have been taking up diving, opening up the opportunity to see the beautiful world under the surface and a nice taste of saltwater in the mouth :)
Honestly, this trip is as well about trying to find myself, push my limits, get out on deep water, face my biggest fears and making some dreams come true.
Biggest one of them, see the magical South Pacific Islands and learning from and about Polynesian culture.
From traveling we both believe in the benefits of going away and staying out, giving a greater perspective and understanding of ourself, other cultures and people. The people we have meet and will meet is such a big and important part of out traveling.
Both of us have traveled quite a lot and we have many nice stories to share :)
Back in Denmark we used to live together, as well with two other girls, and we love the atmosphere and the synergy of sharing and taking care of each other. It has learned us about the importancy of making space, being tolerant and accepting and understanding all aspects of each other. A pretty important skill when you would like to participate in the life onboard.
When all that said, we are aware that life on a boat is hard work, and we will of cause contribute they best way we can and meanwhile open to learn new skills in any department regarding lthe life onboard.
Hope despite your lack in boating expirence, You will consider us as future crew members.
If by any chance You would have further questions about anything, don't hesitate to ask :)
