A few years back, in 2008, I was managing a hotel within the amazing Norwegian fjords. As I worked day and night to keep the hotel running perfectly in all departments, I got tired and needed a short break. I left for Alta (a city in the northern part of Norway) for a weekend. In Alta I met this unbelievable beautiful Russian woman, Anna. She was studying her last semester and on her way to Oslo when I met her. When I left I had to make sure I got to see her again, so I took one of her bags with clothes with me to help her move south... 7 months later we got married and she were carrying our first baby – WOW.
As we were about to walk down the ile at the church, she turned to me and asked me if I could promise her one thing – to show her the world. Of course I said yes, as I enjoy exploring my self.
Years went by, and the family increased from two, to three and from three to four. Her dream to see the world and my promise to show her the world was put on hold. We both got to a state of mind – we can always travel when the children have grown-up and moved out.
As being struck by the lightning... Early autumn 2015 my lovely wife got seriously ill, and our lives got turned up side down.
She spent 3 months in hospital and is now recovering. However we need to keep her close for years to come - So I believe this is the perfect moment in our lives for me to fulfil my promise to her.
Our children and I want to surprise her with the journey of our lives – circumnavigate by sailing, as a family, together. Since her condition needs to be supervised I have got another family ready to sail together with us. The wife in that family is a nurse and she is also Russian speaking. This means that my wife will get the medical attention required as we sail into to the sunset. This has been discussed with her physicians and they agree that this is a great way for her to recover.
I need your help to fulfil this promise I have given my Queen... Please make a donation.
