Hello Dear Reader,
I would like you to know that it is an extraordinary concern for me to warmly thank you for visiting my page. This makes me feel honored and blessed.
Please take a virtual seat on my page, relax, feel comfortable and very welcome ;o)
In the meantime I would like to use this unique opportunity to briefly introduce myself as well as the idea behind my project.
All right - let’s go then:
My name is Adrian, 48 years young. I am currently working as IT-Business-Consultant in South-Germany. One word to describe myself: "indescribable" ;o)
Due to the fact that I love the ocean one of my most ambitioned visions is to sail across the Caribbean and other beautiful spots together with extraordinary and exceptional people who share my passion of the endless immensity and beauty of the sea.
The idea behind this project was born approx. in 2003 when I did my ASA sailing certificate in Mexico. From this time on I started to think about a project I call: “Dreams and Magic - Cruises & More”.
Let’s take a closer look at today’s situation:
Exclusive sailing-trips and island excursions at world’s most beautiful spots, e.g. at the Caribbean Sea or around the Balearic Islands became nearly invaluable for the pocket of a normal working average employee.
My clear idea concerning this unpleasant situation was to find a way to offer all lovers and admirers of sailing and island hopping an:
· absolutely affordable
· unforgettable and
· exclusive trip on
· a catamaran.
Regarding this my vision was to run an intimate and familiar sailing tour, e.g. at the unique and stunning spots of the Caribbean Sea, where participants can totally escape from their daily restraints and interferences for at least one priceless week or more.
My target is to create and establish as much well-being and wholesomeness in the heart and soul of each participating “co-sailor” as possible during this trip by different kinds of activities, e.g. island-hopping, sailing tours, guided island excursions, swimming, snorkeling, scuba-diving - on an adequate and exclusive vessel.
A place where people could totally feel at home, take a deep breath and expire stress- and unfruitful thoughts in the freedom of an absolutely natural surrounding full of beauty and authenticity to regain a maximum of energy and mental-power.
At this point you might ask: Where is this amazing and magic place?
This place exist in our hearts, still. But we can bring this imagination into real life together - with your help - now!
You also would might ask: What is the advantage for me in supporting this project?
Well, usually exclusive sailing trips are nearly unaffordable for an average earning person/family these days.
I really appreciate to change this situation and realize my project with your help and support by introducing the following concept:
Donate 99 € and take the chance to get this unique and absolutely amazing reward:
- 1 week sailing trip & island hopping for 2 persons in a double deluxe cabin.
- Painting donators name on the hull.
- Donators name as supporter-reference on Project Homepage.
- The first 100 donators will get this reward immediately and guaranteed!
- 900 donators will be selected afterwards randomly for this reward so we will have 1000 participants in total.
