There’s nothing like knowing that there are dedicated people out there who believe in us and our project. Without people like you, we would have to fold up shop! THANK YOU!

Boworn Fashion House, Bangkok

This is the story of two sailors who went to the tailors. We brought Berlin’s Kopfsteinpflaster (cobblestone) to the streets of Bangkok. These beautiful suits will accompany us on our journey and will eventually walk the cobblestone streets of Berlin with us.

Thanks to the Boworn Fashion House for the location and thanks to Lincoln Davis for playing his song “Kopfsteinpflaster”!

You can order suits internationally at
They’ll pick you up from anywhere in Bangkok! Just call +662 234-2052-3

Many thanks to Hamburg-based Peter who helped us intergrate our route trackings! This little tool enables us to update our current position everywhere on the open water via satellite telephone. Sweet!

He most certainly sails as well. Visit his websites sy-piano.de | bootschaft.net and leave him a post.
