last week something nice happened. as a result of wind knots, opening hours and the speed of taken steps it meant to happen. two boys with their little sailing boat from the Norway fiords had to make a stop in Helgoland till the wind and storm passes the island. they got stuck in here for a week which led to some nice dinners, funny talks and sunset watching. now listen to this while you keep on reading and scroll down for a little iphone and camera photo mix.
here's a little fact. in Norway, or at least some parts, people actually say 'Helgoland!' as a gentle creative replacement for their word 'Helveta' which means hell. as it is a swearword the elderly ones try to protect the children like that, of course. i find it simply bizarre - the name of this one tiny one kilometre small island to be used somewhere in Scandinavia all the time for this noble (well..) reason. b i z a r r e .

now i'm following these two on their journey down to the Mediterranean Sea for another few months on facebook. just to add a little personal pinch to all this story - sometimes some things happen at the most needed moment, this was the case for me. dearest boys from the north - thank you so much for your company! you both reminded me of dear things for my heart.
