‘Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do, than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails.‘ Mark Twain


Dreaming of a life at sea I have sold everything I owned ashore to make this idea of sailing around the world come true. In Summer 2017 I purchased my beautiful floating home called TANGAROA, a Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 42′ Sailboat. And have since spent a lot of time preparing her for this passage around the world, so that she is now fully equipped and ready in all ways from safety to fun gear.


To me, the idea of sailing begins with the possibility of sustainable travel. Exploring countries and cultures in their own rhythm while moving powered by the wind, water, and sunlight. I aim to design this journey as environmentally friendly as possible. There are many ways to impact this in every step, from small things like the products we use to clean the boat, the food that we eat, the trash we produce and the way we appeal to the places we visit.


Exploring countries and cultures in their own rhythm.


Environmentally friendly with less of a carbon footprint.


Traveling powered by wind, water and sunlight.


Visiting remote locations off the beaten track.


My name is Jonna, I am 29 years old and traveling together with my dog Donna, a six-year-old Boston Terrier. Aiming to discover new places and meet great people along the way. To make new friends and to inspire others to take chances and follow their dreams.


The sustainable impact which I have during my travels matters a lot to me. And traveling by sailboat, I feel that I have the chance to move in a uniquely sustainable way. Producing my own solar energy and drinking water, my aim is to create a most independent journey and less of a carbon footprint. Organising beach cleans and having a strict waste policy onboard – to help keep our oceans clean. Tangaroa does, of course, have an engine, but I try to go by sail as much as I can – even if this may sometimes take a little longer.
