Anchor Angst – Arrival in Las Palmas

Leaving Lanzarote around noon we sail along the coast of Fuerteventura with wind behind us, like always much more than the forecast had pro missed. It is nice and quiet but the swell’s up! The boat rolls from side to side inbetween long atlantic waves. Great conditions for surfing but definetly not for sitting, or…

Exploring Lanzarote

There is no better way than hitchhiking around Lanzarote! It´s surprisingly easy and you meet awesome people, like always 😉 Andrew, the musician from London, sees our guitar, stopps his car and offers us a ride only if we let him play one of his songs. It turned out to be a fair deal 🙂…

El Quemao – Surfing Europes Pipeline

The wave, “El Quemao” in La Santa, Lanzarote looks scary but amazing at the same time! A steep wall of water is breaking on the reef infront of the lava rocks. It is known as the Pipeline of Europe cause it forms a tube like the world famous wave on Hawaiis Northshore, when the conditions…

First Ocean Impressions

Our first approach to the Atlantic. The first miles out in the open sea. Sailing is fascinating. Getting pushed by the natural force of wind, we glide over the blue ocean. When the sun disappears behind the horizon, we start shifting the night watch. Every three hours we switch. Always, there got to be someone…

Surfing in a New Year

What a funny coincidence – our two really good friends from Germany, Henne & Eva arrived on Lanzarote exact the same day we did. We spent some great days together in Caleta de Famara. Perfect place for surfing, sleeping on the beach and eating tapas.   Happy belated New Year 🙂    

Hitchhiking to Chefchaouen, Morocco

Hitchhiking in Morocco Sounds exciting – and somehow a little bit dangerous. But why? Just because we dont know anybody who did it? Or maybe it´s the media picturing only the bad news about this diverse country? Joh should be carefull not to come back with two camels instead of his little blond travel compagnion (or a…

Christmas in a Fishing Harbour

The wind settled down and the engine noise broke into the quiet sea. We needed to get some more fuel, so we stopped in a small fishing harbour of the Moroccan coast in El Jadida. There was only one spot where the water is deep enough for our boat at low tide. After maneuvering away…

Just across the street

  No way out – we cannot fight against the strong winds and currents in the Street of Gibraltar! Ceutas protected harbour will give us shelter while waiting for weathers to change. It is our only chance! The pursuit of open minded, tolerant and free lands – the opportunity to a better life – the…

Goodbye Gibraltar

Eventhough all the waiting was hard sometimes, we appreciate to have got the chance to learn more about this special place – Gibraltar. Theory of the Gibraltar Cloud Machine Every time you lift your vision to the sky, there is a big cloud hovering over the city of Gibraltar. But once you look accross the boarder…

Another bubbly day in Gibraltar

When you feel angry or sad, go make some bubbles and be happy instead 😉         “So much bad luck does not fit on a cowskin!”, a German would say.

First day as Street Artists – making Super Bubbles

Once the first bubbles fly in the air all doubts are forgotten. It is so much fun to try and create beautifull shimmering soap shapes. Each one is unique!

“Woaow! Look – they are making BUBBLES!!”, an excited kid shouts through the

Boathikers´ Squat -Life in an abandoned Building

Many travellers come to Gibraltar. They hitchhike, perform arts in the streets and live on a low budget. Everybody is carrying different experiences, beliefs and ideas which they share with people on their ways. One thing all have in common, is the appreciation of simple life and exchange through an open heart: “Take what is…
