We are a couple from the very North of Sweden, more specificly 67° North – thus above the polar circle. Our hometown Kiruna is a unique mining town surrounded by wilderness with mountains, rivers and forests. I guess this nature has played a big part in shaping our interests. Ever since we met we have had a dream about doing something big together. 2014 the idea of sailing around the world came up. Rasmus had sailing experience from before and his family’s sailing boat was available for us to use. The boat needed some love and care first, but it’s definitely an ideal boat for long distance sailing. Then planning started. Over the last three years we have been focusing on saving money and renovating the boat.
