South America to Europe / North Africa 2012 - Cycling and hiking around the world
Hello, we are a French couple cycling and hiking around the world. We left France more than 3 years ago and after crossing all Europe and Asia we have reached Alaska. We are now on our way South to Patagonia. One purpose of our committed trip is not to take the plane...
We are currently in Chile and we are looking for a boat to come-back to Europe or North Africa. After reaching Tierra del Fuego, we planned to go north to Buenos Aires and Rio de la Plata where people told us it was the best place to find a sailing-boat.
So, we can reach any-port of the Atlantic coast from May 2012 from south Argentina to north Brazil.
In a few words...
We both love meeting people and other cultures, we love mountains, we hike a lot and when ever it's possible we rock-climb or do mountaineering.
Aurélie was working for a theatre company as a culture manager.
Florent is a landscape designer, a mountain leader and a kayak instructor.
Like all his family Florent loves sailing, and unfortunately have way less experience than he would love to, but he has sailed a lot (and alone) on the Atlantic cost, and specially on the 7m sailing boat (Cabernet designed by Harle) built by his grand father.

Anyway thanks a lot and maybe sail with you soon !
