Departure ahead!

Posted on

Something ends, something begins It did not happen often in the past that I pursued any long term plans that led to something substantial in my life, so one day I could say, “That’s it! This is what I’ve worked for”. It actually never happened. Most of my plans are cancelled due to sudden disinterest […]

Buying S/V Serenity

Posted on

It was love at first sight and a purchase solely based on intuition. I just had a good feeling about her. In October 2016 I stumbled over an ad on scanboat.com.
