My name is Anselm Schäffler, I'm from Germany, 19 years old and travelling since 6 months. I consider myself as a normal human being in general (modern culture, educated, physical and mental health, typical life so far but still young ...). I finished highschool 2 years ago, worked as a construction worker and then went on to skandinavia on my bicycle, in southeast Asia on motorbike and currently in Patagonia, Chile. I plan reaching Columbia and the Caribbean area (April/may but flex) and would love to reach any place in Europe (June, but still flex) without a plane.
I think I like facing challenges -especially right after completing the last one. Furthermore I think I'm honest, like direct communication, short ways to the solution (also if it includes a mindchange in the process of the challenge).
I don't have a lot of knowledge of sailing (did some in IJsselmeer but not worth more to say than that it gave me the dream of a long sail journey and maybe more) but still I love nature with its calm and storms. Probably I can learn fast, I like physical and mental work, I don't know medicine, psychology or can also live with little privacy and am cooking for me and friends six 6 months every day on the fire.
I am looking for a boat in these months (April-june) going from West to East with a crew which enjoys my self, a skipper I want to trust and not to pay more than what it needs to live (on a boat) so maybe not much more than 10 dollars a day.
I don't know a lot what to expect but would love to join new friendships, experiences and sharing my stories and intellectual as well as every other capital
Feel free to tell me if I am too early, should find a boat just in the harbour (looking for informations 🙃
or am not the person any crew is looking for. Thanks and good luck
