I want to write and take pictures to tell story’s.

May 2017 I left Amsterdam to travel the world. After traveling Asia for three months I lived in Nieuw-Zeeland for half a year. Januari 6th 2018 I left Opua to sail around Cape Horn on yacht Taya. After one month at the South Pacific Ocean our startboard rudder broke for inexplicable reason and we changed course to Puerto Montt, Chili. Two weeks later we got in the middle of a severe storm. Feb 17th 2018 Alan wrote: “Made it through the storm; I saw 1 gust at 56 knots but sustained winds at 42-47 for at least 6 hours and above 40 for 10hrs.” Feb 21st we also lost our port rudder at 769 miles (1424 km) west from Valdivia. Alan decided it was the best to abandon ship and accept help from the Nanjing Express. My journey around the world and this sailing adventure are fundamentals for my book.

The end of knowing is the beginning of believing and faith,
or fear…
It’s a choice.
