. . . and I Celebrate My Second Birthday !

Yes, you can sail around 2/3 of the planet, build a new existence based on your sailing boat on a paradise island and still celebrate your second birthday. Or should I say birth date?
My new birthday is June 21.,that's when I woke up in Samui hospital after a severe motorcycle accident on Koh Tao. My friends organized a speed boat and the transfer in the middle of the night to Samui in pretty bad weather conditions. They needed more than 4 hours for the 36 nautical miles and everybody on the boat threw up except the driver and the semi conscious patient.
So live your dream, get your boat now and start sailing...you never know how much time you've got.
And one thing for sure, I will use my second life wisely...move back on the water, that's so much safer

Congrats. Before my injuries I thought I always had tomorrow, now I am just glad for today and hope to get to my boat sooner than later
