Black Sea / Odessa / Ukraine / 15.11.2019
„This sea is famous for danger, given its turbulent nature, and for this reason it is called the Black Sea, not on account of having black or dirty water.” This is a quote from “Rozmaitości” – a periodical published in Lviv in 1822. The words from 200 years ago are still valid today. Clear and threatening water, but friendly people.
North Sea / Norway / 25.06.2011
A storm on the Baltic Sea rocks a large Polferries water shuttle. We’re sailing to Norway. If the weather doesn’t change, our plans to go fishing will be but a dream. The Norwegian Sea greets us with much smaller waves than the Baltic Sea. Sailing will be possible. Three people on a boat. Fortunately, the boats are solid and the engines strong. We can sail, so long as the wind pushes the waves a bit harder and bends the trees ashore. Nothing is more enjoyable than walking on stable land when you’ve been struggling with balance for 10 hours. An island at sea is hope. It’s enough that it’s close by and you already feel safer being on the boat. You feel as if you’re walking on the ground.
