I am writing about Nike Steiger #7Pe sz2



because in her last video in the time line at  2:53 you may see Tereza.

(Check lower right corner. That’s Tereza.)

Nike and Jasna have been kind of inspiration for me. I had already have opportunity to meet both of them. And i am in contact with them from time to time. As i did wrote today to thanks Nike for showing Teresa in her video. I did meet her in Ram marina. I remember me shouting :”Nike!” And her answering :”Yes”. It was magic then what filling of happiness did i feel.

When Igor –a skipper and the colleges from office, from my last job did told me about Nike i did watch couple of here videos. It was clear for me at once that i want do the same life. And i remember when he was saying maybe you will meet her somewhere. But still i did not expect to have Tereza facing Carl. I am sorry that i was not there when Nike was. I was working in Germany at that time. But still i did met her last January.

It was in summer of 2013 that i went to Jasnas lecture about sailing and living on a boat. And i did like the idea a lot from beginning. The event was going on in Izola. Jasna is coming just 20 km away from Izola; from the Italian side of border between Italia and Slovenia.
And now i realize that i did not still yet write to Jasna to compliment about the book that she did wrote together with Rick. And i will say thanks to Aljosa whom did sent me the book.

I will talk about my future now. It is more or less clear to me that i want go on. with intention to cross the Pacific. Maybe is to soon to talk about it. But you know that i am not so naive any more. Last 10 days i had time to think about it. I know now what i have to do on Tereza. After that I think i can get to Panama. So i want to go to Panama and live there. I want to find me sorce of income there. Any work is fine just to keep me going on. Last year on Isla moheres i did got ofer opportunity to work as a mechanic on boats with a guy from America which is living there now. But i did say no because it was to expensive to hull out Teresa there and i did not have money for reparings. Hurricane session will start in one month and Isla moheres is in  hurricane danger zone and i can not go there and risk to lose Tereza . And i am not sure if the guy (i will check his name later i must still have his visit card somewhere) still needs me. But maybe i will go there in winter. I have to renew contact wit him.

So. In 10 days i should be ready to go back to Utila again. Anyway as you may see i am writing more because i did got back my belief in what i am doing. I want to live on sailing boat exploring oceans. And i want to share my freedom with you. Make you know that freedom is possible. But that you have to work to get there. And maybe you will come and visit me somewhere on my path.

Else there is still my airplane ticket waiting for me on 20 June. To go back to Slovenia and work for 6 months somewhere in Germany. Accumulate money for expenses to cross the Panama channel and go to Polinesia.
To conclude:
I miss my friends and family. “I am thinking about you now each time when i am thinking about gratitude.”

    Nice to read more from you.
    Here in Koper, we are celebrating (without him) my son’s birthday. After twenty years I still exactly remember how it was. The last part toke 12 hours, and all the time I was wearing plastic bags wrapped across my knees and feet and putting watered napkin on my wife’s lips. That time was still not allowed to cut by myself the ombelicular cord, but in return he was born in the same hospital as I. There were some rumors about cezar cut, doctor consults us, and as we wanted to have more kids, we opt for the natural birth. Thanks God for that, now we have 3 beautiful sons. In overall everything went great, and he is very mature, focused and understand life in his proper way.

    Wish to Vincent all the best !

    Tomorrow is 1st. of May, time to be with friends. My thoughts will be also with you.
    Vse dobro vsem
