  1. Unique Sir , i admire your lasting need for a challenge and adventure, finding oneself constantly is important , i ride Motorbikes and find it helps my Zen , thankyou for your videos there GREAT, cheers Dave. AUS…

  2. Regarding Independence day. It came out in 1996 for those who still wonder. It was one of the best movies I can recall. Probably because it was my first visit in cinema as a kid.

  3. Thanks for this inspirational video, Christian, I really enjoyed it. We are the same age but I don’t think I would have carriage to do what you have done. I sail in Croatia on Adriatic sea, sailing from island to island (over 1000 island in Adriatic) few hours here & there but nothing what you have done. Again thank you very much
