`I wonder if you are planning to continue your travels after stopping in South Africa
? Perhaps to South America
On the off chance that you are, and would need some crew, I have written a bit about myself below.
My girlfriend and I, together for 3 years, are seeking passage
over to South America
from Cape Town
, where we plan to spend the year 2015 wandering about and working on organic farms in Venezuela
after passing through Brazil
, where I lived for the first 2 years of my life.
Naturally I remember little of that time and wouldn't mind seeing it again!
I have a bit of sailing experience: one atlantic crossing
with my parents, who are sailors, when I was 8 (I know, doesn't really count) and more recently, about 4 years ago, I joined the ketch
, Sisiutl, on a 7 month cruise
from New Zealand
to Bali Via Vanuatu
and most of Eastern Indonesia
. I am also a qualified chef
and currently the owner of a small artisan bakery specializing in wood-fired breads made with stone-ground flour.
My Girlfriend, Anya, has no sailing experience but she is excited for the opportunity. She will be finishing her Bachelor of Arts Degree this year, Majoring in History
, Philosophy and English
. She has interned for the UN in Geneva and worked in restaurants here in South Africa
and overseas. Her food
We are both well travelled and broadminded people who, though young and inexperienced on the sea, have a lot to offer.
Thank you for taking the time to read this!
Daniel and Anya
