New plans

  I am back to “my” room in Sao Luis, feeling a slight bit stupid… The trip back went well, the same driver from Primeira Cruz came out to my beach, this time with a smaller 4-wheel drive car, picked up my gear and me and drove me quickly back to Primeira Cruz’s ferry terminal […]

The toughest decision of the trip

  I won’t go now. At least I won’t continue from here. I already was describing the outlook for the next 1000 km until Recife: Continuous headwind with no daily or even hourly change of around 20 knots, never under 15 knots, quite often over 20 knots, with an according sea state. Plus an endless […]

Back to my 3rd workplace!

I spent the whole long five months of my summer break quite productive upgrading and updating my two ice cream shops in Husum Markt 2 und Husum Hafenstraße 11, plus rebuilding my x-mas shop in Husum Markt 2 which opened when we closed the ice cream shop on October 14th. Once done, I could fly […]

  I am actually quite keen on going back again to South America since some weeks already, but as long as the southern winter-wind is around 20 knots right into the face (plus the counter current), it makes no sense. It’s meant to calm down to “only” around 15 knots mid-October, and this is when […]

Home, sweet home…I’ve lost more than 11 kg!

  The trip home was hectic, but all going according to plan. My Sao Luis crew with Jadiel brought me to the airport, and even stayed with me almost until my plane left at 2.30 am. thanks again for looking after me so nicely! In Rio de Janeiro I was arriving at 4.30 am, and […]

Flying out already tonight, 2.30 am…

  Even the flight booking online this morning was a tough job…in the middle of the credit card verifying process the laptop I was using ran out of battery and then the system at that agency was stuck fully. The lady on the hotline (thank goodness to skype…) couldn´t confirm my flight was NOT booked […]

  No paddling today despite reasonable wind… Pos: here Loc: behind Ponta dos Mangues Verdes Acc: tent Some ugly diarrhea was making me even more weak than I already was, plus being mentally fully burnt out made me decide to take my long home break NOW. I will even have to paddle back tomorrow to reach […]
