Hey guys I'm back in South Africa from Madagascar #sextant #oceancrossing #sun 🌏🌊⚓️
To build an empire, I just need meticulous planning and 150% execution. And of course, the support of many special people in my life. #comingsoon #project #africansunset 🌊🌏🌞
Sun kissed 🌞💘 #Madagascar #yellowmoon thanks Brit for the 👗
First time killing and preparing a fish - a yellow finned tuna! Thanks to Jaco and everyone on deck for the emotional support. 
I used to fear taking life, but I knew I had to do it one day. This, was the day. I think I had always been living in denial, and didn't really want to face the fact that the meal on my plate was once a moving, living creature with life. Not because I thought the animal was cute or anything, but because I was oblivious to the 'beauty' of what taking a precious life really meant. I still remember to this day when my biology teacher from school brought a live fish to for us to dissect and I cried in the corridor, terrified... in despair, which I know now that my fear came from the ignorance of believing that 'killing' is only brutal and evil. I became vegan for a year till the day I watched an animal eat its prey in real life and realized this is just part of life. A magical cycle that we're all a part of, and as long as you can appreciate that cycle, you can treat all life with love. Even if you're taking its life. That was when I realized my fear came from pure ignorance. (Does that make sense? I'm typing this as I drink rum at a bar in Madagascar) 
Before I decapitated the fish, I looked into the fish's eye and had a brief moment to thank god and the fish for this gift, 'life'... and instantly, I had more appreciation for every life I (had/will) consume(d). The fish was later cooked and fed eight people on our sailing boat - all within an hour from capturing it.
I believe that if a person does not have the courage to kill and prepare an animal by him/herself, s/he shouldn't consume it. 
It's the simple law of life.
It's Monday today... but when you're sailing with 7 men (of which 5 are boers), it means beer, beer, and more beer with a #Braai 🍺🔥🍖
