This ship is called the Nordlys. It is an epic awesome ship that is sails only and crosses the Atlantic transporting Chocolate, Coffee and Rum! It is the coolest! I was able to be a part of fixing it up in the Netherlands via contacts from a friend! It was an awesome experience with so many talented and different people. I actually met up with people from another ship when I was in Panama the year before. My travels took me to Europe and I connected with some of the same people! It's the beautiful thing about life - always meet new people because you never know where it will take you!
This was a fun experience and I learned a lot. I was able to refinish the sides of the boat and get them ready to be painted. I replaced some planks in the Gauley. I even made the bunk beds that they are using! It was quite the experience.
The working part was one thing, but learning about the other people who worked on the ship was very different. People from all around the world come together and become a family. Awesome people, amazing meals, lots of partying and lots of people expressing themselves through music and play! It was something that I will always remember and if I get a chance to, i would love to sail the 2 month trek across the Atlantic with them. What a trip that would be! Pura Vida!!
