Heaven, Day 1

Here we go!
Finally, after about 4 months of preparation, 12 hours of flying. I sit at the window and study the cloud images, it’s interesting how different the formations look, since arriving on the South American continent they seem to be higher, because here we are now moving in the haze, which is why I unfortunately can’t see anything of the rainforest yet. I fly over Iquitos, the place where I will soon be looking up from below.

Despite being 11,500 meters above sea level and travelling at 930 km/h, I have internet on the plane to write WhatsApp messages and listen to podcasts.

And this is where something very beautiful meets me:
In extreme minds – Windscheid and Haitzmann

In extreme minds: Dr. Leon Windscheid, psychologist, talks to 18-year-old Lukas Haitzmann about his crossing of the Atlantic alone in a rowing boat, basically I’m flying the route that Lukas rowed alone for 60 days, with all the beautiful and difficult moments, be sure to listen! What’s it like to do something new that you’ve never done before? That also applies to me in this situation, I’m about to do something that I haven’t done before, at least not in Peru. Lukas’ approach: just do it!

Wonderful, that’s what I’m doing now, just do it!
