In this episode of Sailing Nandji, we maybe stuck, but we can still explore! Just because we are not able to continue sailing around the world, does not mean we cannot keep exploring where we are. Boat life to us, is more than just sailing. We enjoy being anchored away from everyone and everything and enjoying the nature around us. A major reason we love living on Nandji is to live closer to nature and immerse ourselves amongst the elements. It's the little things in life that are the most rewarding. A simple bow shower under the rain makes all the difference.
In this episode of Sailing Nandji, after a visit from the Malaysian customs, we decide it is time to head back to town to replenish our fresh supplies and learn more about the current world pandemic. After the ladies complete the food shopping, we learnt it was too early to be back around people. We head straight back to Nandji and set some sails and got as far away as we were allowed, time to spend another month off grid of lockdown living. Rather than return to Angry monkey beach, we find a new anchorage at the bottom of some cliffs. With no internet for two weeks, we move Nandji again closer to a beach where the Whippet can stretch his legs easily. With no other people around for weeks, the noises of the jungle really made it feel we were a long way from anyone or anything. A great place to hide away and let the world heal.
In this episode of Sailing Nandji, we are up early with the sunrise and head out under sail, close reaching the final 15 nautical miles to Langkawi, Malaysia. Countries were beginning to drastically implement new laws and regulations and us sailors are the most vulnerable. We are hoping to reach a safe harbour before Malaysia shuts the border and we are not exiled at sea. This were changing daily but everything was very new back then and were hopeful that this would not be for long. We continued on with our plans to prepare to leave to Indonesia and we rushed around collecting packages and preparing Nandji for the Indian Ocean. The ladies provision the boat ready for 6 months of sailing and we are waiting on our visas for Indo to be ready and then we are off!
