Best of 2016

You never realize that the time passed fast until the new year arrives. Last year we have been in many events, places and incidents. Even though, was not the best year for us because we had to leave “Dee” on land but it was a great year that grants us very good experiences and memories. The photos here in this post may not cover all my feelings for the “Best of 2016”, or it may not show white sandy beaches like you expect because without good companions, the places have no meaning.

Our Best of 2016 paused in July because we had to leave “Dee” on land and we all moved back to Europe because of my health problem as many of you already know. I appreciate all the moments I had with my family, with old and new friends. We would like to thank you for all the helping hands that some of you offered, a lot of laugh and, of course, a lot of drinks that we had together. We look forward for 2018 to return to “Dee” and continue our sailing trip visiting incredible places with new experiences and new and old friends.
