Lena Scott stepped off her 21 feet liveaboard, hopped on a plane from the east coast of the USA, and flew to Norway to her new 24 feet sailboat, a Danish classic Spekkhugger, to spend the summer cruising the Oslofjord- It was a dream come true and maybe a recipe more people should follow. The beautiful small boat is a great conversation starter on the dock, and she got welcomed into summer cabins, homes, and boats along the coast. She named the boat Pytheas, after a Greek explorer, and her journey is definitely one of exploration. Not only along the Norwegian coast, but also into culture, people, and herself.
Now she is planning more summer sailing in her charming boat in Norway. Listen to this podcast and be inspired.
