    :)) Johan 38 let ? ..typoval jsem maximálně 28 a o Malin dvacet…jsem rád že jste dospělí osobnosti.
    Jste krásní lidé, láska štěstí přináší 🙂
    Jestli bych mohl mít přání, prosím ukažte při svých cestách původní duchovní život. Bohy cizích krajin , rituály a meditace.
    Hodně štěstí a lásky*

    Hello Malin and Johan – I am fairly new to your vlog but I am addicted. I love what you do and how you do it. Thank you for sharing. I am also contemplating raising the anchor soon and I was wandering if you would be willing to share your grocery list with me. That would give a very good indication of what is required for a happy crossing.

    Thank you in advance,

    Kindest regards,

    Alain (from Quebec Canada)

      Hi Alain! Thank you so much for your nice feedback! Many people have asked about the grocery list and we might write a blogpost about it to share some thought and ideas. But we pretty much bought what we eat normally and we were thinking of food ingredients that you can combine in different ways. We were also thinking from the different nutrition fields, as carbs, protein, fat etc. And then not to forget toilet paper, garbage bags and stuff like that. Hope this gave you an idea 🙂 Good luck on your preparations! Regards, Malin and Johan

    Aloha Johan and Malin,
    We enjoy watching your videos of sailing in freezing temps while on our boat in Hawaii. Burrrrrr! We thought we were tough leaving Newport, Ore., last February, but it was nothing like the North Sea. Hats off to you intrepid sailors. Beautiful couple and beautiful boat.

    I really appreciate the beautiful photography and tight editing in your videos. Your English is wonderful to listen to as well. I especially like the aerial shots from your drone. What kind of drone is it?

    We sailed to California and Mexico (Sea of Cortez) where it got too hot so we decided to sail to Hawaii. We love it here! you should put it on your list of places to visit. We are one of very few cruising boats here. Most anchorages we have all to ourselves. It is beautiful here and the diving and snorkeling is wonderful

    We look forward to more great videos.

      Hi guys! Thank you so much and we’re glad you like the videos 🙂 We didn’t know that Hawaii gets cold… How cold is it? We would love to visit Hawaii! How do you find the sailing between the islands? Are the acceleration zones strong? We hope to be in the Pacific late next year if everything goes as planned so me might meet you there 🙂 Take care! /Malin and Johan

    Your videos are so professional, and I’m glad you actually visit places and get the local vibe, and pass it on so well in your videos.Looking forward to more. All the best for Christmas, and safe travels.

    My sailing experience is limied to a 10′ El Toro that I sailed in Newport Beach, CA. Over 30 years ago. My interest in sailing has been recently been regenerated by your vids. Great job on your editing and your music is really cool. Who are some of the recording artist that you use? Your last vid showed the RAN taking on water. What’s the status and has it been repaired.

      Thank you Mark and we’re glad we can inspire to go sailing 🙂 Since around September last year we use music from a site called Epidemic Sound where all music is copyright free. So there are no famous artists and the music can only be find there. It’s the easiest way for us to find music that are available worldwide. The water came through the man hatch on the chain locker but we have sealed it better so it’s fixed now. Thank you for watching and have a nice day! /Malin and Johan
