Hey there! My name is Josephine and I’m 24 years old, turning 25 in November - reaching the final adult age in Germany with paying insurance and stuff. I have studied law in Potsdam and now need a break / inspiration for my further way of life. Right now I’m working more than I should having in mind I will be able to spend the money on my incredible journey through South America. I have sailed a couple times And therefore know about the circumstances of living in and sharing a small place, being sea sick and seeing nothing but water for a looong long time. I also would call myself a team player (having played volleyball for a long time, being raised in a big family and living in multiple flats). I also know how to cook good and big meals. I don’t know how to sail on my own and have never been on the open sea. Enough of me, it’s time for you to get mw on your crew :) PS: i would love to bring a friend who is my age and my travel buddy/ best friend since forever - together we make even better company.
