Highlights in 2022

2022 has been an amazing year! We already from New Year planned our sail journey to the Mediterranean in June, so we had a lot to clean up at home (because we should rent out our house), quit jobs and activities, and say goodbye to friends and family.


For 3 years we have been host family for students at UWC (United World College) in Fjaler, a couple of hours drive from us. They have been visiting us 3-4 times a year. The last year this 3 beautiful girls have visiting us:

Sunita from Nepal, Petrina from Canada, and Asmita from Nepal

I hope we one day, when we are coming back to Norway can do things like this again. I will recommend other families to become hosts from students coming to Norway!

24. of february Russia started the war against Ukraina and a lot of people from Ukraina came to Florø. The church in Florø arranged “Concert for peace” and a lot of musicians participated. And the church was almost full. It was a touching moment.

After months of dreaming and planning we finally arrived in Cleopatra Marina, Preveza, where our new boat stayed on the hard. And what a mess it was when we filled the boat with all the things we brought…
