Norbert on IY Open60AAL

I personally want to say THANK YOU so much to all of you πŸ‘±β€β™€οΈπŸ§”πŸ‘¨β€πŸ¦°πŸ‘©πŸ‘±β€β™‚οΈπŸ‘§πŸ‘¦πŸ‘¨β€πŸ¦³, who came at the departure and also who joined online on the live video or who wrote motivating messages πŸ€žπŸ‘πŸ™πŸ˜Š. It was really a departure full of emotions!! πŸ™‚

First day at sea and I have to get used to the completely different life again β›΅πŸŒŠπŸ’¦. Being alone, surrounded only by the ocean 🌊, sometimes a bird comes by πŸ˜ƒ. The opposite to yesterday, where I was surrounded by many people at the departure. The weather keeps changing, sunny, cloudy and raining… β˜€β˜πŸŒ¦πŸŒ§ The first night was rather calm, good to get into it again.
