Texel, Vlieland, Terschelling, Ameland, Schiermonnikoog and Rottum. These island are all different and one by one we see them starboard on the horizon, but from this distance, the differences are small. The question of the day is "which island do we see now?" I guess this has to do with the curiosity of human beings. Or the need to know where we are. Finally, we want to know how to come back home. Of course I can check my cell phone, because my phone can tell me where we are and how fast we sail. There are apps that can find the north and can tell you how the stars are called, they can inform you which way the wind will blow and whether it is convenient to carry an umbrella or better take the sunscreen. This provides security and it feels safe.
Hoisting sails and trimming, wearing and tacking and enjoying the wind and the sea, this way I like it the most. Okay, fine dining and  sleep a bit so now and then is part of the trip too. A wonderful holiday to rest. Why worry about whether we pass by Vlieland or another island. The captain has said that we sail to Hamburg, so he knows where we go… I read another chapter of my book.
It is nice that people are so different and every trip we get to know new people. From different countries, with different ideas, different interests and nevertheless they have something in common. All of them have chosen to go on sea with this beautiful ship. And, I dare to say, they  will disembark with wonderful experiences and lasting memories. Beautiful sailing on a beautiful sailing ship!
