  • The times seemed much simpler back then. There was privilege all around and things came easily. The Alta had turned into a magnificent renovated 155ft long private charter luxury cruise boat after a lot of work by my mother and others. Spending a year upon it and traveling around to different countries and cultures as an eleven year old will always remain one of the best set of experiences in my life. I am glad to remember it well. In this picture one can see the iconic Danish sea captain, boyfriend to my mother and owner of the boat as well as my younger brother on the left. They both seem very carefree as indeed that year seemed to me...that couldn't last forever...nonetheless it was a great year...
