Thanks for visiting my blog.

I'm going to Antarctica from today and will be back in Ushuaia on the 28th.
Unless my small vessel goes Titanicing on its way, this blog will be updated again from the 28th onwards, I hope.

Thank you very much for visiting Air Esky.

I am currently in Havana, Cuba and will be back in our modern world in about a week time.
Air Esky will be updated as soon as I regain some decent Internet bandwidth next week.

See you soon.

Thanks for visiting Air Esky.

I'm in Jeffrey's Bay, South Africa and am enjoying one of the world's best and longest right-hander pointbreaks at the moment.

From April 2012, Air Esky will be updated only in English in order for myself to ease the workload of uploading articles.

Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

現在 自分は 南アフリカ共和国 の海沿いの町 ジェフリーズ・ベイ に滞在し、毎日波乗りざんまいです。

本ブログの更新を今月より再開するにあたり、労力や作業時間を短縮するために今までの 英語・日本語表記 から 英文一本化 で継続していくことになりました。

ご不便をおかけしますがご理解のほどお願いします。




A dream, a wish, or a desire.... whichever one I have in my head to long for something, it is often associated with the ocean.
Chugging around the waves of people and cars in Nagoya only makes me daydream about real waves, and if this (mental) condition persists too long in reality, a recurring nightmare begins during the night: I see in the distance a perfect A-frame wave breaking, but my feet are glued on land and the harder I try to reach it, the farther it drifts away from me. Sounds corny to you? But this is all true and can be haunting to me.
Feeling so far away from the water is a torture and this is the very reason why I hardly spent more than a couple of months in any landlocked countries during my RTW trips.

201512 Esky for Sirene Journal (1)

I don't know exactly how they found me.
It was only a couple questions and answers exchanged by email between them and me to start with:

"Are you the author of Air Esky?"
"Yes."
"Are you interested in writing an article about your journey to the Antarctic?"
"Ah..., ok."

Simple!

Soon after signing a deal with them I lifted my anchor to unfold one of the greatest journeys I've ever taken in my life. And I'm now stoked to announce that SIRENE Journal has just published the second issue including my article - "To the World's END".
Me having no journalist-background but being just a vagabond and contributing my Antarctic experience to such a cool magazine is a privilege. Thanks very much to Floriana who found me and let me be part of your voyage!

201512 Esky for Sirene Journal (2)

SIRENE Journal was initially funded through KickStarter and already had their first issue published. It's a completely ad-free magazine and, as you can see in the above photos, the design of the mag is as white and serene as a secret beach on a remote island somewhere on this planet.
This #2 journal also features other sea-lovers' stories whose titles are "The Last Moken", "Diana Nyad", "On the Waves of Dakar", etc. All of them have one concept in essence - the inevitable attraction that we feel for the liquid part of our planet.
You might now think that it's too late for your little Christmas present. Then why don't you order this #2 for your new year's resolution? Because all we need is a little inspiration to leave our Christmas luxuries behind and embark on a new journey.

To order SIRENE Journal #2, please click here.
They are also on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

May the ocean be with you :-)




Airports are somewhat funny places to be, especially those 24hr non-stop international airports.
I just landed in Changi Airport, Singapore, where the whole world seems to be packed neatly in‎ one place. All colours, all nationalities, babies, kids, adults, geeks and dorks are wandering around or dashing to catch their next flights. This is a great stop-over for me to disengage myself from a mono-culture-minded Esky and re-convert myself into what I used to be.

201604 Air Esky Stopover in Singa 00

Yes, I'm hitting the road again!‎

For only two weeks....

‎Where to....?

Somewhere in Indonesia; One of the offshore islands of Sumatra this time.

Heading back into the super tropical climate zone is what I've been after since my time in Panama and Costa Rica back in 2014, though Singapore is already hot and sticky enough for me.
Monkeys, birds, fish, coconuts and bananas must be awaiting my arrival. There will be no Sushi there for sure, and perhaps even no Internet for me from tomorrow, which is actually fantastic and it's another thing that I've long been after; Being offline is the best luxury these days!

201604 Air Esky Stopover in Singa 01

Oh! This brand-new waterproof camera (not a GoPro) will be of my best company in and out of the water over the next two weeks. I will upload some cool shots on Air Esky next month if I ever capture any....
Two more planes to catch tomorrow. I hope that you are all well and happy and also travelling somewhere on this planet :-)
