We are sailing across the sea

The year was 2013. We were heading to the airport with my scout group. The whole year we had collected money for a journey to Croatia. We were all seriously excited.

My scout friends are the best people I've ever met

The flight went well and we landed safely in Split which is the biggest town of Croatian coast. We took a cab to the harbor where there was a Finnish captain waiting for us to get on board to amazingly big and gorgeous sailboat called the Mustamaija.

The Mustamaija is almost 20 meters long amazing sailboat

We sailed along the Adriatic Sea from island to island, sun was shining, birds were singing and we had a great time.
So this one day, we had just arrived to a beautiful island. Me and my friends lain on board of the Mustamaija and we just talked and listened good music. It was the boys turn to cook us all a meal.
The meal was ready and we all enjoyed it in peace and quiet. I have always been a little clumsy and of course I dropped a plate full food and it all spread along the floor. Everybody laughed at me including myself. I stood up to go get some paper to clean up the mess. It wasn’t such a great idea to walk backwards because the next thing that I noticed was that I had fallen down the skylight window right in to the inside of the sailboat. I got a huge bruise on my thigh and it still hasn’t completely fainted away.
Almost two years has gone by and I still get reminded of this clumsy accident on the Mustamaija.
The moral of this story is to always close the skylight windows when there are clumsy people around.

    You have included captions, links and amazing photographs that show a lot of creative talent!
