Oh well here we go.
The last post must have been ages ago and I’m not really keen to have a look at the exact date. Not that it matters anyway.
I have a whole plate full of stories that would be worth sharing, but life kept me busy enough with experiencing things rather than writing about things that happened in the past. It’s not an excuse, cause I don’t have to excuse myself to anybody for not writing.
But now I’m at the verge into a new big adventure, that might reveal a few stories worth telling and remembering.
So what’s the deal?
To make a long story short, I have quit my great job in Auckland in April to go back into sailing. There was nothing wrong with this job, in fact I was more than happy but the call of the sea and freedom was stronger than anything else.
I’ve spent nearly 3 years in New Zealand by now and I don’t regret much about this decision to stay here for that long. But it is time for new adventures, new destinations, new frontiers. I might come back to NZ one day and maybe I will stay for good. Who knows? I don’t.
Apart from quitting my job, I have left my flat, sold the motorcycle, sent a gazillion things back to Germany and wished more than once farewell to all my friends that I had the honor to meet.
But I haven’t done this without somewhere to go to. Before making all those decisions I got the opportunity to crew aboard the S.V. See Adler. A 70ft sailing super yacht (or is it super sailing yacht?)
We will disembark very soon on a journey of epic scales. This trip that will last for several months will take me on my first ocean passage and enable me to see most of the eastern south Pacific.
Foreign cultures, lonely islands, endless beaches, impenetrable jungles and the never ending horizon are just a few things that will await us on this trip.
It’s time to take the next step in sailing experiences.
And what happens afterwards?
After this great journey will be over, I will head back to Germany. Maybe not right away, maybe just for a quick moment. There are several possibilities and plans. But let’s talk about it once those ideas stand on a bit more solid ground.
