Hi EvelynL,

The boat is a Feltz Scorpion II and was built in 1981 in Germany. Astrid said it was typical of that time with a long keel and round bilge.

Re: Is Schengen visa extension possible?

I had heard that as well. *grin* What a shock it must have been to get to Greenland, eh?

I think I'll prefer hanging out in Iceland this winter. There isn't a lot of sun, but whenever you...

Re: Is Schengen visa extension possible?

Re: Is Schengen visa extension possible?

Thanks Mike,

We won't be in that area until some time next year, but if you're still there perhaps we could meet up. We'd love a bit of local knowledge/tour in exchange for stories.
