Hello! I am a 39 year old guy who has spent his adult life split between North and South America, Asia, and Europe, Barcelona has been home(base) for the last 6 years. I speak English, Spanish, and passable Portuguese. I don't smoke. I have passed the RYA Day Skipper Theory exam, and have completed 4000+nm at sea. My latest life-goal has become to buy a boat sometime in the next couple years to sail the world. So of course it's essential I learn to properly sail. Last year I hitched across the Atlantic (can provide references from all captains) and have sailed on a handful of boats in The Med. I'd love to do the crossing again this year (Available anytime after Nov. 15th) but also open to any opportunity to sail in the Med. At this point my biggest interest is that there is a good fit of like minded people onboard :) I also have a budget to contribute of course not only for my share of food expenses but also to contribute some to the running costs of the boat. A little more about me: I have spent my entire adult life traveling the world, often in very extreme circumstances. I'm no stranger to discomfort and adventure. I have lived in half a dozen countries and traveled to about 100 in all kinds of conditions, so I learned to get along well with all kinds of personalities. I am super friendly, easy going and a positive thinker. I don't complain, I love to laugh and joke around and constantly search for the balance of keeping a positive and lighthearted attitude in the face of challenges while still maintaining the proper focus on solving the problem at hand. I consider myself an environmentalist and also believe in social justice and equality. I try and make ethical life decisions. I'm quite good with a camera and am happy to document the trip and share photos and edit short videos. I also LOVE to cook (spent a chunk of time in the restaurant world... Good food is important to me!) I was responsible for ALL cooking duties on a 25 day Atlantic crossing so I am well experienced in cooking at sea. My preference is a plant/fish based diet but that being said I am not a vegetarian, I will eat (and cook) whatever the rest of the crew is into. I am also an active member of the Couchsurfing community, where you can read references from 70 people who hosted me in their homes when I was traveling, and there are almost as many references from who I have hosted in my home for free. You can follow this link to see my couchsurfing profile and read the references: http://bit.ly/321w8r0 I share this with you so you can see that I respect others and their living space (my profile there will also give you a better idea of who I am) You can also learn a little more about who I am by checking my blog: www.thescenicroutethroughlife.com You can email me at [email protected], or you can contact me through whatsapp +34-722698007, or just respond here. Looking forward to hear from you!

Dietary requirements: If the rest of the crew is vegetarian that's great, I prefer a plant based diet. That being said I do not follow any "rules" about eating meat so if that's what the crew is eating then that is what I am eating. Otherwise no special dietary restrictions.
