Jet Start Into The Second Season

We are back with Milagros in Mexico and wake her up from her summer hibernation. From experience we expect the worst with all the work ahead of us. Will our fears come true?

Living on a Sailboat: 1.5 Crazy Years in Retrospect

We are back in Switzerland for a summer break. It’s an escape from the Mexican heat, but also a bit from life on the boat. Now it’s time to reflect about living on a sailboat full time for 1.5 years.

Change of Plans and Background Noise

We’re spending a week at the Santa Rosalia Marina before crossing the Sea of Cortez where we plan to haul out Milagros for the summer break.

Teamwork Makes the Dream Work

We had to leave the beautiful anchorage in San Juanico because of unpleasant conditions, so we sailed north to meet Marga on Dogfish in Coyote Bay.

Disco in the Water and Party in the Sky

We leave the most beautiful bay and continue north. Isla Coronados and San Juanico are up next. Once again, we fix things with a beautiful view and meet a fellow Swiss traveler who is on a long journey.

Milagros in the Big City – Part 2

Mexico City is huge and has a lot to offer. We check out the anthropological museum, visit the Teotihuacan pyramids and go to a wrestling show.

Daytime Fun and Night Horror

We take a weekend trip to the two islands north of La Paz and find ourselves between heaven and hell.

Between making headway, relaxing and enjoying ourselves, we also suffer from sleepless nights at anchor.
