I've spent three nights

at sea so far.

This will be the fourth night.

And there goes the sun.

Always extraordinary

how fast that goes.

The fourth day...

that's when I truly

realized that I was away,

that I was really doing

a world trip.

That was because I saw

the Canary Islands.

Because at home,

ever since I was very little

the Canary Islands were something for me

that was really far away,

something unreachable,

somewhere I would never get to.

So when I got there

I was really like,

"Whoa, shit.

I'm here."

I met some really cool

people, and we explored

the whole island together.


I really feel like

a mountain goat.

I've thought about five times

that we were almost there.

And now...

we can hardly get any higher...

from the sea.

And the sea is there.

Others who have done it,

the world trip for the record...

like Jessica, from Australia

and Abby, from America.

They sail non-stop

around the world.

I don't want to do that

because you'd see

so little of the world.

I think it's really great to

learn about other countries,

other cultures.

That's one of the reasons

why I'm taking two years

to do my journey.

Well, I've set off.

First, I'm just going

to let my dad know

that I have indeed set off.

So we're going to call him now.


I'm sailing away now.

The waves?

They weren't so bad.

I'm right by the beach

that's kind of a bay,

so it's not an issue.

Everything is off

in the kitchen, yes.

Yeah, I'll do that.

I will, bye.

Okay, well that's taken

care of...

Parents, "Did you think of this?

Did you think of that?

Be careful!"

But I will be careful.

Saying goodbye was difficult.

The Atlantic Ocean...

The first of three big oceans

to cross.

All of my feelings were jumbled.

I enjoyed it immensely,

the sailing and everything
