On the coast of Guadeloupe

Can you feel the tranquility of this moment above? We are finally out on the vast seas. Cannot with words describe the feeling of having everything and nothing in front of you like this after being kind of locked up in one place for such long time (almost two months). This is where we belong. The sea is addictive and the freedom that comes with it is a feeling I'd never want to live without, ever again.

Regarding the previous post: I am so sorry for all of you who doesn't get the point of art. Not that I in any way need to explain myself to you strangers out there but FYI: I quit smoking more or less when we arrived to Caribbean for six months ago (which I also think that I earlier mentioned here on le blog) and I feel very happy with that decision. I still smoke maybe 5 cigarettes per month (earlier 1-2 packages/week), but I'm doing my best to not over do it as it feels much better without the nicotine. For that video I posted below though, I would have smoked in it even if I would've never tried a single cigarette in my whole life, because it was what made the movie for me

And also: some of you guys really need to stop telling people what to do, if I would have listened to all wannabe cops and moral preachers (vad heter moralkärringar på engelska?) that I met in my life, I wouldn't have gotten far that's for sure. Everyone are free to do what they like, no? I smoke when I want to, I drink when I feel like, I smoke a spliff when I feel the lust for it, I swear and use inappropriate words whenever I find it suitable etc etc and if you have any kind of problem with any of that, well, then that is your problem, not mine. 

Have a good Wednesday you all and try to chill down now some of you. Life was made to be enjoyed and you shouldn't waste your precious time on getting annoyed for what other people choose to do with theirs. This will only make you bitter and boring. Take care of yourself, it is a too heavy task to try to change others.

Got sick and tired of my blonde/orange hair the other day. Feels good to be back to dark again.

Good bye Antigua

Early morning in Antigua. Still loads of things to do around here but we will make sure to finally be able to leave super early tomorrow morning. We've been here in Antigua for almost two months now which wasn't at all what we originally planned for, but we've had a really good time on this island and also we have solved loads of things (getting a new boat for example) during our time here. But now finally will we be back where we belong, on the sea in good wind, alone just the two of us, moving forward towards new destinations. We'll hopefully make our first stop in Martinique on the night of the 27th but I'll be sending you a note through the satellite connection when I get the chance.

no sailing today thank you very much

Think I'll stay in bed for the rest of the day.

Suits me most perfectly after a late bar night last night with our lovely new friends.

Stormy weather

We were kind of supposed to leave towards St Martin today to visit our new boat, but this heavy rain and thunderstorm won't let us. We just had some gusts up to 60 knots of wind here in this bay and when studying the storm potentials on this excellent website, it also looks like we should keep an eye out for a tropical storm that is now building East of the antilles. We know that we aren't in the most perfect place on earth at this time of the year considering what season it is but let's hope no hurricanes will arrive at least before we get ourselves away from here.

Will need to be in Martinique by the 28th at the latest.
