My Travel Story

Hello!!

My name is Alisa and I am 18 years old.

Ever since I can remember I have one big dream: sailing on a sailing ship with my friends around the world. I remember myself sitting on a swing and imagining what we would experience and the adventrures we would have. I could sit there for hours, being lost in my reverie. Of course, I never even thought my dream could one day become reality. I mean, who would let a bunch of kids sail to foreign countries on a traditional sailing ship? However, always looking for a new adventure, I surfed the web to learn more about exchange year possebilities. And what I found took my breath away: OceanCollege, a high school, which is located on a sailing ship and gives high school students the opportunity to study for 6 months while sailing to the Caribbean! Besides the normal curriculum you also learn nautical skills. This was exactly what I looked for, this was my dream which I was dreaming for many years!

Unfortunately, participation in this project is pretty expensive. Although I job form time to time and I plan to job more next summer, I really need your help! Without support from others I will not be able to pay the participation fee. This is such a unique possebility for my dream to come true and I do not want to miss it!

I am so thankful for every support and every donation! It means so much to me and I hope that next October I will be able to leave Germany on a sailing ship heading for the Caribbean!!
