MEMORY #1: VOLCANIC STORM

“I grew up in tiny fishing village in Ecuador. Every year my father and I would sail to explore the Islands. When I was seven, we made plans to go see an active volcano. During our voyage a huge storm appeared and forced us to change our course. The waves became massive, causing the boat next to us to disappear after each surge. At one point the weather got so violent that my father ordered me to stay below deck. Luckily, I had taken my new gameboy, Zelda and a full stack of 24 AA batteries.” (1993)


MEMORY #2: Crazy Scary Wildlife


“During our visits to the Galapagos we would anchor at our friends’ house for a few days. There was never a dull moment at the Enchanted Islands. Some days we would wake up to octopi climbing to our boat which Vicente would then chase around, or we would be joined by sea lions at breakfast. There was something unique about the pelicans that would come to our windowsill and wake us up pretending to be roosters…every day was an experience”


MEMORY #3: Bioluminescent Evening


“…But the most magical memory came a few years later. During a regatta, exhausted after not sleeping for two days and tired of eating ocean splashed lasagna, nature rewarded us for our hard work. The sun set and began to illuminate us from below. A plethora of bioluminescent life came to life below our feet, and all kinds of sea creatures appeared, from the tiniest fish to others as big as our boat. They moved below us as in a busy, neon-lit street. It was like seeing a parallel world developing under the surface”
