In the wilderness lies the preservation of the world.
Henry David Thoreau
Out of the smog, into the wilderness!
Lina, Thekla & Pia
After a 10-hour flight and car ride to the harbor, we have left Vancouver city behind and are heading towards Strathcona Provincial Park. Light Canadian rain falls on the plexiglass panes of the ferry, which was waiting for us and all(!) of our luggage at the airport. Some people are nibbling on Pascale’s last cookies, others read, Tobias, sleeping, is difficult to discern amongst the mountain of backpacks. We are all exhausted. While in Germany it is almost 6am, the evening is still young here, and the sky still light. So it’s still important to keep our eyes open – because we also got to see our first whale fin, thanks to Pascale!
Update: The connection between the expedition team and the office team is secured via our Inreach Device. The group is enjoying the bonfire and we are all well.
